This Student-Run Cafe in Berlin Allows People to Tinker with 3D Printing

 - May 3, 2016
A 3D printing cafe was recently opened at the Technical University of Berlin and hopes to continue the emphasis on accessible 3D printing that the creative community deems so important.

The 3D printing cafe will provide students and non-students a space to play around with 3D printing technology. They will be able to create objects such as spare bike parts, architectural models or even customized gifts.

The cafe also plans to offer workshops and events to promote interdisciplinary projects while bringing together the university's community of creators and innovators. The business is currently funded by students and prides itself on being sustainable by promoting the use of materials that are recycled, reusable and eco-friendly.
