3-D printing is revolutionizing the way small businesses test prototypes and mass produce for their clients, optimizing effectiveness and efficiency. The new Minneapolis branch of the PostNet Neighborhood Business Center is opening with a focus on bringing 3D printing services to entrepreneurs, student prototypes, and small businesses at a much lower cost than we were seeing even six months ago.
Coming into its twentieth anniversary this year, PostNet has been bringing new technology within reach for startup with an affordable price tag since it’s conception. Dave Thorsen, founder of PostNet, was first introduced to the technology in a Fab Lab, a MIT-affiliated laboratory that was a part of a high school renovation. He saw potential in the tech that was allowing students to test the validity of their designs as they were realized in a matter of minutes via 3D printing production.
Thorsen will open up the technology to small business owners, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, designers, and university students, in the hope that projects that were merely theoretically without sizable grants to back their manifestation will finally be able to breathe. The new printer will include applications allowing clients to design new technology, develop functioning prototypes, build architectural models, and create customized products and medical devices.
The PostNet is located at 701 N. Washington Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota. However, 3D printing services are just beginning to crop up all over the country, so look for local services to supplement your own business plan.
