3D Printing Expo: Welcome to the Third Printing Dimension!

Join us to experience the broadest assortment of 3D printers available in the Tampa Bay area. We'll address practical and whimsical uses of 3D printing, types of 3D printers, and host 3D printing demonstrations. Several local companies will be on hand in our 3D printer showcase to demonstrate their technology and fabrication businesses.

3D Printer Training PLUS Hackerspace Day Pass

We're also hosting real world training on our collection of 3D printers. 

We've added three 1 hour breakout sessions to provide training on use of Tampa Hackerspace's 3D printers. These sessions include a day pass to come back at a future date to use the printers. If you'd like to participate in the training session and receive a day pass, please RSVP below. All sessions will have the same content.

But wait, there's more...

We moved into our new space just about two months ago. Since then, we're been furiously painting and fixing and building out our hackerspace. We think it's about time to have a grand opening! We'll have a ribbon cutting and refreshments to celebrate the new Tampa Hackerspace. We hope you can join us!

Please RSVP here for the overall event. 

We'd like to thank Hillsborough County's Economic Development Innovation Initiative (EDI2) for providing major sponsorship for this event.

3D Expo and Showcase for members and non-members: FREE

Below is the map for available parking in our immediate area. We'll have two areas in our parking lot roped off. One is for the FOOD TRUCK! The other is our neighbor's loading dock. Please stay out of any lots not marked on the map, including those indicated with a red X. There will be a volunteer on hand to assist with parking throughout the day.

    We had such a great day with everyone! I'm so glad to see so many people enjoying the expo today. The response was far better than we expected! I hope everyone got a chance to talk to our exhibitors at the vendor showcase. They are a great example of local companies directly involved in the 3D industry. If you didn't get a chance to complete our exit survey, please take a moment to do so now. It is 3 questions and will take less than a minute.

    We look forward to seeing you again soon at Tampa Hackerspace!

    Hi all!

    I am looking to see what you all would like for me to have on display in terms of prints. We have a bit of everything here and would love to make sure we bring pieces that are going to get your creative juices flowing!

    hi bill, I'm getting "You do not have permission for this event." when clicking through on each of the links above?

    • Tampa H.

      Hi Brooks, Thanks for pointing that out. Naturally, it worked for me since I'm logged into the account that created the events. It should be fixed now. :)
