When it comes to 3D printing, one of the names that keeps on cropping up would be Solidoodle. Just in case it sounds vaguely familiar to you, let me jog your memory a little bit – Solidoodle is an affordable 3D printer for homes which debuted last year, and it even made an appearance over at the world’s largest 3D printer store in the UK earlier this year. Apart from that, we talked about how someone from New Zealand decided to build a 3D printed car from scratch, using a Solidoodle 3D printer to assist him in his efforts. Well, here we are today with the announcement of 3Dörtgen being Turkey’s first 3D printer store, and of course you will find Solidoodle 3D printers on sale there.
The 3Dörtgen 3D printer store can be found in Istanbul’s Camlica district, and if everything runs as smoothly as expected, then the store is tipped to open up this coming September 3rd. Solidoodle founder Sam Cervantes gushed, “I am excited to see that the 3D printing and the larger maker movement is a worldwide phenomena. The addition of 3Dörtgen as a distribution partner is a great opportunity to bring affordable desktop 3D printing to Turkey with a company that has had a strong presence in its own community for decades.” [Press Release]
