New York, NY (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
For the first time, New Yorkers will have an opportunity to see, touch and experience 3D printers and 3D scanners in person.
On December 21st, 3D Heights will become the first retail 3D printer and 3D scanning store with a physical location that allows customers to see, touch and try out this new technology.
3D Heights is not owned and operated by a multi-national or corporation. Native New Yorker, Jerry Castanos opened 3D Heights after a successful career in the military that introduced him to 3D printing technology. He has now returned to his native Washington Heights neighborhood and hopes to bring this new technology to the masses.
3D technology will change the way small business owners manufacture products, bringing jobs back to the local community. In this new world with 3D printers, every consumer can become a creator from producing toys to purses to prosthetics - whatever the imagination can conceive, a 3D printer can produce.
The 3D industry is projected to become one of the fastest growing sectors - a $5.2 billion industry - with annual growth of 14 percent between now and 2020, according to industry projections. Wall Street and Tech Street all agree there will be huge opportunities for jobs and new companies over the next few years.
