3D Printlife has partnered with Fab Lab Hub to help fund nonprofits through discounted distribution of its eco-friendly filaments to the Fab Lab network.
Fab Lab Hub has secured special discounts on 3D Printlife’s innovative new environmentally-friendly filaments for Fab Labs and associated organizations within the Fab Lab Network. Proceeds from the filament sales go to help fund its non-profit work with Enable, Limitless Child International, and more.
“Fab Lab Hub is thrilled to partner with 3D Printlife,” says founder Sarah Boisvert. “Bringing 3D Printing filament to makers in the Fab Lab Network at a discount helps make being environmentally conscious also economical. We’ve tested both the eco-friendly Enviro ABS and PLAyPHAb PLA/PHA blend and 3D Printlife meets all of our quality requirements. We’re looking forward to sharing this exciting new product with our Fab Lab friends.”
Fab Lab Hub is a non-profit that helps bring new digital fabrication laboratories associated with MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms into the Fab Lab Network. With over 1,000 fab labs around the world, the network provides a place where anyone can make “almost” anything. Fab Lab Hub also coordinates the Boston-area Enable project, 3D Printing prosthetic hands which are given to those in need, organizes the annual DigiFabCon, Digital Fabrication conference and is launching FabWorkforce, a new platform linking digital fabrication workers, training programs and employers.
“We are so proud to partner with Fab Lab Hub to distribute our eco-friendly materials to the Fab Lab community.” said Buzz Baldwin, Co-Founder of 3D Printlife. Fab Lab Hub will provide discounted distribution of 3D Printlife’s eco-friendly 3d filaments to the entire Fab Lab network, and proceeds will provide additional funding for nonprofits like Enable and Limitless Child International, as well as support new and existing Fab Labs.”
To ensure that each Fab Lab receives the highest level of service and support, 3D Printlife and Fab Lab Hub have enlisted the aid of BSC Supply in Waltham Massachusetts. For over 30 years BSC has provided individualized account based service in the consumables and imaging technology industries. BSC will furnish each Fab Lab with a dedicated account representative ensuring that every location is working with an expert who not only knows the 3D Printlife product line, but also their individual account.
“BSC Supply is excited to partner with 3D Printlife and the unique eco-friendly products they have brought into the 3d filament space.” said Brian McShane, President of BSC. “We look forward to providing the Fab Lab network and Fab Lab Hub the same level service and expertise that we have delivered to our customers for over 30 years.”
