In about two weeks I will be boarding a plane headed to the Big Apple, New York City. The occasion; 3D Print Week, New York, which is hosted by Meckler Media, and made possible by the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Last year around this time I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo at the Javits Center in New York. This year things are getting cranked up a few more notches as an entire week of 3D printing festivities are about to kick off. From the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo to the 3D Print Fashion Show and Art Show, attendees are sure to find plenty to keep them busy from April 14-17.
