Hello there!

I have some exciting news to share with you about Pittsburgh 3D Prints, a local business that is making waves in the world of 3D printing. But before we dive into the details, let me give you a little background story.

Matt Lockmer, the owner of Pittsburgh 3D Prints, never imagined that he would become an expert in 3D printing. It all started when he received a 3D printer as a Christmas gift from his partner, Amanda, in 2020. Intrigued by the possibilities, Matt’s curiosity took over, and he decided to rebrand his computer repair and consulting business to focus on 3D printing.

For quite some time, Lockmer ran his 3D printing shop out of his home during the winter of 2021. However, as the demand for his services grew, he realized that it was time to expand and find a dedicated space for his business. And so, Pittsburgh 3D Prints found its new home at 3337 Route 130 in Harrison City.

What does Pittsburgh 3D Prints offer, you ask? Well, they provide custom prints, printer repairs, and lessons on the technology. Lockmer is even planning to introduce group workshops in the future, aiming to spread the magic of 3D printing to a wider audience. With his expertise and growing collection of printers, Lockmer can now print “pretty much anything anyone would want.”

But that’s not all! Pittsburgh 3D Prints also specializes in repairing 3D printers for school districts, such as Tyrone and Sto-Rox. Lockmer understands that these machines get a lot of use, and teachers often don’t have the time to fix them. His services include bed replacements, belt and axis adjustments, and recalibration to ensure top-notch print quality.

In addition to custom prints and repairs, Pittsburgh 3D Prints sells 3D printer filament, or as Lockmer calls it, “ink.” And let me tell you, the options are endless. From kitchen products to housewares and even niche items like battery holders, there’s something for everyone at this unique store.

Despite Lockmer’s initial skepticism, Pittsburgh 3D Prints has been a huge success. Within a year, he gained over 1,000 clients and estimates that he helps around 1,500 to 2,000 clients each year. The demand for his services is undeniable, and Lockmer aims to transform his store into a “place for learning and fixing things that are broken.”

If you’re curious about 3D printing or have any inquiries, Lockmer is open to any type of request or question. He’s passionate about the art of 3D printing and is pursuing it for the sheer thrill it brings him.

Now, let’s talk logistics. Pittsburgh 3D Prints will announce its official hours on September 1st through its website, www.pittsburgh3dprints.com. You can expect the store to be open on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Temporary parking is available in the adjacent alley, but for visits exceeding 10 minutes, customers can utilize the parking lot shared with Mainline Pharmacy. And if you want to secure an appointment in advance, you can conveniently book it on their website.

Keep an eye out for future updates as Lockmer plans to hire a few employees. Information on available positions will be released on the website, so stay tuned.

In closing, Pittsburgh 3D Prints is on a mission to be a 3D printing hub for the community. Whether you need something printed, your 3D printer fixed, or simply want to learn more about this fascinating technology, Lockmer and his team are ready to assist you.
