According to the Financial Times, a new 3D printing venture is about to kick off in London thanks to Elgin Loane, an Irish entrepreneur.
Over the next 18 months, Loane plans to open eight new 3D printing centres in the premises of his Color Company shops in London. Once they're set up, the production centres will offer a series of 3D printing workshops, all aimed at getting businesses to appreciate the possibilities offered by 3D printing techniques.
"London is an ideal place to begin a venture of this sort," Loane said, "because of the concentration in the city of small businesses, many of which are involved in creating new products in small volumes."
If the venture is successful in London, then Loane plans to expand into other cities - so keep an eye out for a 3D printing centre popping up near you!
