Fusion3 has a clue. Like many, they realize that the genius in the 3D printing community lies in makerspaces. The difference is that they are acting on that knowledge, and courting the growing numbers of 3D printing enthusiasts who inhabit what is known as the Makerspace community.
Catering to the sweet spot–and the hotbed–of 3D printing, Fusion3 is launching an entire program around it, offering discounts to makerspaces in an effort to help support their movement and propel their growth forward not only in the U.S. but also northward, throughout Canada.
Offering 3D printers that already competitively priced, Fusion3 will feature:
- Seven percent discount to all U.S. and Canadian makerspaces
- Free lifetime service and support (normally $984 annually)
- Promotional listings for makerspace partners on Fusion3 website – a great way to get recognition for your makerspace, with backlinks to your own site included
“Makerspaces are the incubator for the next industrial revolution” remarked Chris Padgett, Founder & CEO of Fusion3. “We’re thrilled to support this growing resource for entrepreneurs and makers by expanding access to our high-performance 3D printers.”
Fusion3 sees their F306 3D printer as the perfect match for the makerspace offering versatility, durability, and quality. Designed as a ‘best in class’ industrial 3D printer, the F306 offers 3D printing operators the opportunity to print twice as fast, with a larger build volume at 306 x 306 x 306 mm, allowing for the capacity to 3D print prototypes and products up to a full cubic foot in size.

“The Fusion3 was one of the first tools in our makerspace and our members use it constantly” said Joey Adams, Founder & President of Forge Greensboro, the first community makerspace in the Triad Region of North Carolina. “The F306 has stood up well to the use and abuse our members have thrown its way. If we do have an occasional issue, the free Fusion3 MakerSpace support program has been invaluable in keeping our printer up and running at peak performance.”
Meant for those who have serious intentions with their 3D printing and require serious tools, the F306 has been rigorously tested for proven reliability, virtually eliminating the risk of unpredictability and failed prints. Fusion3 offers their 3D printer and all their products at a fraction of the usual price, and what allows them to do so is their use of special patented design features.
Featuring an all-metal print head and high-temperature heated bed, the F306 can print with nearly any material, meaning users are not locked into using proprietary filaments, and can experiment with a wide range of materials to even include ceramic and wood.
For makerspaces interested in taking advantage of the special discount, they must be qualified through Fusion3, who will determine eligibility and then give a quote.
Fusion3 is headquartered in Greensboro, NC and creates 3D printers for both industrial and educational applications. Chris Padgett, CEO, is an enthusiastic maker himself, and his own interest in 3D printing led to the founding of the Fusion3 in 2013.
