City X Project Receives Sponsorship from 3D Systems


We are excited to announce that 3D Systems has become the presenting sponsor of the City X Project as we run our student workshops around the world in 2013 and into 2014. As a leader in the 3D printing industry with a focus on accessible, easy-to-use technology, 3D Systems is a perfect pairing for our Project.

3d-systems-cube-printer-at-schoolWe’ve been using 3D Systems’ Cube 3D printers since our very first test sessions in 2012, and we’re very excited that the company’s sponsorship will ensure we have enough printing capacity to create a new future with our kids. Libby has also moved into our new IDEAco outpost at the 3D Systems office in San Francisco, where will we be constructing the City X installation.

3DSystemsThe City X Project is now moving forward in full force, scheduling workshops in schools around the world beginning as early as May. We’re talking with schools in South America, the Middle East, and Africa, with our hopes set high for participating schools in other parts of the world. If your school or a school you know might be interested in our workshop, don’t forget to fill out our brief application form as soon as possible so that a member of our team can get you involved.
