Tour of the Shapeways 3D Printing Factory in New York

  • Mar 26, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • Shapeways Factory

Construction is finally done and we're excited to announce the first official tour of the Shapeways Factory of the Future! Join us for an afternoon to learn how your design idea becomes a product though the magic of 3D printing, meet the team who bring your ideas to life and ask your questions in person.

The factory is near the Hunters Point 7 train in Long Island City, and we will be emailing the exact address and directions once you sign up.

For safety, we can only accommodate 20 people at a time, but now that we're done with construction, we will be running tours every month!

Please note, you must wear closed toe shoes, and there is no photography permitted.

Join or login to comment.

    Do I have to RSVP my friends if I'm bringing people with me?

    March 20, 2014

    • Natalia K.

      Each person must be on the list. We can only allow 20 people in for safety reasons so if they are not on the list, they will not be allowed in. Please help us keep the factory safe! Thank you

    • Natalia K.

      Ie/ please do not bring your friends with you! We may have to turn them away, and its a cold wait outside :(

      We'll get into a rhythm as these become monthly events! Never fear, You Will Get To Come On A Tour Soon ;-)

    Hi Natalia, I've been waiting so long for this tour! Excited! Can't wait! I'm printing a lot if things with you right now...but they are all being printed in Eindhoven. Why is that?

    1 · March 19, 2014

    • Natalia K.

      It depends on the materials you're printing in. We print our most popular materials in our two factories, and also have manufacturing partners around the world. So your products might be ones we print only in Eindhoven, or that is the nearest distribution and shipping center.

  • michael a.

    I'm an entrepreneur currently involved in a Hair Care bottle project and would like to see how this can help w/ prototyping.
    I hope I move from waitlist to attendee.

  • Natalia K.

    Hi guys, I didn't want to put the actual address on here for safety but I will email instructions and the correct address early next week!

  • Vitaliy B.

    I am on the wait-list... Can I get the directions on how to get to the place? Thank you! Hope I will be able to go there!

    Hello, the link to the map for this doesn't display the actual address marker for the factory. It's just giving me a general map of Long Island City. What is the correct address?
