Andre Tiemann, a fellow member of Toronto 3D Printers whose excellent multi-colour art prints have been featured here before, has just launched a 3D printing service with a twist.
Instead of investing in expensive industrial equipment, Andre decided to go after a more budget-conscious market using exclusively (and relatively inexpensive) prosumer 3D printers.
For now, prosumer means mostly printing on Makerbot’s Replicator 2 devices. Come spring though, Andre will add one of the highly-anticipated Form 1 liquid resin printers to the mix. If the ~$3 million dollars raised on Kickstarter is any indication, that will have somewhat of a disruptive effect on the market.
It’s difficult to gauge in advance how successful such a venture will be, but Andre and others in the local 3D printing space have been good about making education and volunteering efforts a part of their overall business plans.
