File Submission Service (Discontinued)

From 2013 to 2019, we 3D printed thousands of customer 3D file submissions in a print shop style service. There are now several Edmonton businesses that provide contract 3D printing services. We've shifted our focus to empowering customers to learn about and directly operate 3D printers rather than duplicate community services.
