Essentium, Inc., a leader in industrial additive manufacturing, has launched its physical filament store in Austin, Texas. This move is a direct result of the partnership Essentium recently formed with 3D-Fuel, and aims to expand 3D printing possibilities and foster local maker engagement. The store not only offers premium quality USA-made filaments but also encourages collaboration and education – empowering makers to fully embrace the capabilities of the technology.

The brick-and-mortar venture aims to provide technical insights, inspire innovation, and offer the latest 3D printing technology to the local community. With over four years of local filament manufacturing experience, Essentium is reportedly committed to engaging with Austin makers and sharing its expertise.

There is currently no dedicated brick-and-mortar store for the 3D printing community in Austin. Addressing this gap, Austin 3D Printing draws insights from 3D-Fuel’s success with a similar store in Fargo, North Dakota – providing face-to-face interactions with 3D printing experts, coupled with expedited same-day printing services.

The partnership expands options for 3D printing professionals, educators, and hobbyists by offering more than 40 colors, including Tough Pro PLA+ and other popular filaments. The alliance ensures accessible materials – enabling diverse applications and contributing to local sustainability – all made in the USA.

Demonstrating environmental responsibility, Essentium will also introduce spool recycling services – allowing customers to repurpose spools, minimize waste, and support sustainability. The company also recently shared findings from its independent research showcasing the positive impact of 3D printing on reducing carbon emissions.

“Our physical filament store embodies innovation and offers cutting-edge 3D printing tech for makers. It aims to redefine accessibility, making 3D printing tangible and interactive. The store bridges technology with personal interaction, creating a dynamic space where visitors can engage with experts, receive expert material guidance, and actively participate in immersive tours that demystify the intricate process of filament production,” said Said Nirup Nagabandi, Ph.D., Vice President of Materials Engineering at Essentium.
