Enthusiasts of 3D printing will have one more neighborhood spot to tickle their tech craving. Makerbot is no longer the only game around here. The UK-based iMakr company – which debuted in London last year – is opening its flagship US location on the Lower East Side tomorrow night (June 19).

Fans can sign up to attend the launch party, but an exact location is not officially revealed in the invitation. So, we’ll take that honor. Judging by the new (obscured) awning signage onsite, we can now report that iMakr will rear its head at 152 Allen Street. The new iMakr store will offer the following services upon opening:

  • High quality 3D printers from around the world,
  • Training and workshops,
  • Technical support and maintenance,
  • A wide range of filament and other 3D printing materials and accessories,
  • Incredible 3D printed objects from world famous artists and designers,
  • And much, much more!

This particular stretch of Allen Street has been a tough sell for new retail operations of late. Rents are particularly high, and aren’t justified by the small amounts of foot traffic here. Prohibit NYC previously held down this address for quite awhile, but eventually called it quits in December 2012. The store had been vacant ever since.
