Following the success of 2013 events in London and Paris, New Yorkers will be the first Americans to learn more about the new technology and its application across a variety of fields, from fashion to medicine, to architecture and the environment. The 3D Printshow serves those who have never come across the products of 3D print technology before, and the exhibit will demonstrate 3D printing’s endless potential. Maybe your next Marc Jacobs shirt or the sets in the next Broadway hit will come straight out of a 3D printer.

Local New York makers, crafters, and engineers have already started using 3D printing to create everything from insulated espresso cups to fashionable jewelry. Next month, take this opportunity to see and better understand what the hype is all about. As 3D Printshow reminds us, “The Internet changed the world in the 1990s, and the world is about to change again.”
Throughout the three-day event, 3D print exhibitors will explain and present their products and services –– spanning from full-body scans and prints to desktop, industrial and commercial 3D printers. Workshops and seminars will also run throughout the day, offering insight from senior company founders and CEOs, as well as showcasing work from young designers.

February 13 will feature 3D Printshow: CREATE, a three-hour arts and fashion event posing an ideal opportunity to listen, learn and discuss the critical issues and developments involved in creating wearable 3D print work.
If you’re interested in 3D printing professionally, Thursday February 14 will bring the NYC Elite Business Conference and The Investor Session in all-day speaking and networking series featuring Cyndi Tetro from Disney, as well as other important industry insiders.
For those who prefer a less formal experience, exploring the exhibits will fascinate and educate. The event’s art gallery, sponsored by Adobe –– the company behind design software like Photoshop –– promises to exhibit a stunning collection of 3D work sure to ignite conversation about fine arts and technology.

There is so much creativity and artistry in New York, a city to see and be seen. The advent and rising popularity of 3D printing leaves limitless options in the New York art and culture scene. Imagine paintings framed at the Guggenheim or the MoMA with 3D printed frames, dishes and silverware at NYC’s finest restaurants printed from 3D designs, or affordable housing constructed via 3D printing. Maybe MetroCards or transportation will one day be revolutionized!
The technology is young, but powerful. Check out the exhibit to learn more and perhaps contribute your own 3D printing ideas to the future of New York City.
The 3D Printshow will be at The Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street) in Chelsea, February 13-15.
