3DSmith is the brainchild of brothers, Steve and Chris Choi. Chris is a business school graduate and Steve an Engineer. The two began their 3D printing business venture by outsourcing the products from 3D Hubs, a 3D printing website. Though, they quickly learned that the retail store format would bring in a whole lot more business.

3D printing is cool and all, but you’re probably wondering how this affects your life, and you’re not alone. The things is, 3D printing doesn’t just market to architects or people with occupations which use prototypes. The thing you need to know is, you can literally make anything you want! Jewelry, household decor, utensils, toys, anything! Say your buckle breaks on the vintage bag you found at a thrift shop; just print a new one! We know, our minds were blown as well.

If you’re not sold yet, check out some of the things 3DSmith has been helping locals create already:
