Makelab, a prominent on-demand 3D printing service from New York City, has launched a new location in San Francisco, becoming the city’s first local on-demand 3D printing service. This expansion aims to revolutionize the rapid prototyping and production processes for local businesses, particularly in the tech and hardware sectors.

Makelab’s New York City branch has been a key player in the design, engineering, and hardware fields, completing over 150,000 parts for more than 15,000 clients in seven years. Their services have supported startups and established companies in consumer products, robotics, hardware development, and medical devices. The company’s commitment to high-quality parts and deep understanding of client needs has driven their NYC success, a model they plan to replicate in San Francisco.

Located in the SoMa district, Makelab SF offers local businesses the advantage of same-day pickups and expedited services, enhancing the speed of innovation and iteration cycles.

Christina Perla, Makelab’s co-founder and CEO, emphasizes the importance of a local presence in fostering strong client relationships and providing tailored support and insights.

Makelab provides a comprehensive array of 3D printing services, including SLA, FDM, MJF, and VCJ technologies, utilizing over 15 different materials. These capabilities serve key industries such as robotics, hardware development, medical devices, and consumer packaged goods (CPG).

Nate Padgett, Co-founder of Informal and a hardware community organizer in San Francisco, praises Makelab’s presence, anticipating significant benefits for the local tech community.

With locations now in both New York City and San Francisco, Makelab is strategically positioned to serve the two largest and most dynamic cities in the United States. The San Francisco branch officially opened on May 28th. For more information, visit
