Demystifying 3D

The beauty of 3D-printing 👾 is how conceptual and logical it is. Just by doing the act of 3D-printing and working with a 3D-printer, you can learn so many technical concepts that can make you a better engineer and entrepreneur. It really is the gateway to engineering and innovation!

 

We are happy to announce that Alpha is collaborating with NYC FIRST to create the ‘Demystifying 3D-Printing’ series because EVERYONE should be able to 3D-Print! 🚀💥
