Inside 3D Printing Conference Coming to NYC April 2-4 – Get 10% OFF

Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo is headed back to New York! Attendees will experience the biggest 3D printing event yet, with a day of workshops on April 2, the new Maker Summit & Pavilion, more speakers, and bigger exhibitions than ever before.

Inside 3D Printing has secured an impressive roster of speakers for the NYC show, including Curtis Carson, Head of Systems Integration for Centre of Competence Manufacturing Engineering at Airbus, Avi Reichental, President and CEO of 3D Systems, and Maxim Lobovsky, Co-Founder of Formlabs. View the full speaker list here.

New elements have been added to the New York conference, including a 3D printer giveaway before each morning and afternoon keynote session on April 3 and 4. In addition to the event’s business-to-business programming and exhibits, the Maker Summit & Pavilion will give attendees the chance to explore the world of 3D printing DIY and design with exciting exhibits and sessions including “Additive Manufacturing Unplugged”, and “Kickstarting Innovation”. 

Additional dates for the conference are scheduled both in the US and internationally, including an event in São Paulo on April 16-17 and one in Seoul on June 12-13. Click here for the full world tour schedule.

We’ve partnered with Inside 3D Printing NY to offer 10% OFF full conference passes with code 3DLAB. Don’t miss out! Get your tickets now.

3D NYC Lab Featured on The Airship

A few weeks ago we had the nice people from The Airship stop by to talk about the ins and outs of 3D printing. There’s a lot of hype around it right now, some of which we were sad to dispel, and some we were happy to encourage. You can see the full article here.

We’re always happy to talk with people about the realities and hype surrounding 3D printing and digital manufacturing. So many news outlets speak about it as a magical technology that will save all of us, without actually diving into the realities and challenges of working with a rapidly emerging technology. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the article:

In fact, NASA has already invested a great deal of money into researching how to print food in space. For now, this remains a hopeful dream, like many of the other predictions about 3D printing. (“We’re not there yet” is a phrase Austin and Blair repeated throughout our discussion.) Because of such hype, it’s difficult to stay grounded in the practical realities of 3D printing and how these might affect our lives. So let’s cut the bullshit. Let’s see where 3D printing actually stands today and where it’s likely to go tomorrow.

The game-changer with 3D printing is the growing democratization of manufacturing — and this is not something you necessarily have to look into the future for. It’s happening right now with companies like 3D NYC Lab, which works with clients of all sizes to create products on a smaller scale than larger conventional manufacturers.

Sometimes it’s difficult to stay present with technology that’s seemingly so futuristic. The most amazing aspect of 3D printing isn’t that tomorrow we’ll

3D NYC Lab Goes International

This week, Austin Robey, co-founder of 3D NYC Lab stopped by Latin American News Channel NTN24 to talk about 3D Printing. The conversation included talks of the past, present, and future of 3D Printing. Also included in the along with medical advances and legal and ethical consequences. Check it out here (if you speak Spanish.) Thanks to NTN24 and Luis Quevedo for the interview. (Isn’t he bonito?)

Interview starts at 2:50.

Welcome to the 3D NYC Lab Blog

We’ll be posting periodic updates in our blog around projects that we’re working on, interesting concepts in laser cutting, 3D printing and rapid prototyping/fabrication. Check back for more updates coming soon!
