    Posted by Kimberly Kirchner

    Throughout history, certain products have inspired our imagination, changed the way the world operates and charted a course for the future.

    That next, great product is already here - the 3D desktop printer - and starting today, Ultimate 3D Printing Store is set to become the premiere destination for enthusiasts and the curious alike to purchase this amazing technology.

    Ultimate 3D Printing Store is the first E-commerce retail store to exclusively offer Wanhao 3D desktop printers, printing filaments, replacement parts, technical support and service in central Florida.

    There's no denying the interest and excitement in 3D printing. With desktop machines now priced affordably to own, the company believes its Wanhao products represent one of the greatest inventions thus far in the digital age.

    "Our dream is for every child, every inventor, every artist who has ever dreamed of designing and creating something new to have that opportunity," said Roy Kirchner, president and founder. "The power of 3D printing is only limited by imagination. If you can conceive it, you can literally create it."

    Kirchner, a self-proclaimed tech-geek, first encountered 3D printing while at Tampa Hackerspace during the group's Open Make Night. He immediately recognized its potential and wanted to share it with as many people as possible. Not long after, his company was born.

    Family owned and operated in Tampa Bay, Ultimate 3D Printing Store offers a variety of Wanhao products, including the Wanhao Duplicator 5S 3D Desktop Printer, the Wanhao Duplicator 5S Mini 3D Desktop Printer, the Wanhao Duplicator 4X Transparent 3D Desktop Printer, the Wanhao Duplicator 4X Black 3D Desktop Printer and the Wanhao Duplicator i3 3D Desktop Printer.

    Ultimate 3D Printing Store also has an incredible array of colored filaments available for purchase in ABS 1.75mm and 3.00mm, PLA 1.75mm and 3.00mm and PVA 1.75mm and 3.00mm, as well as some very unique specialty filament, plus a wide assortment of parts for the Wanhao Duplicator 3 series, 4 series and 5 series that customers need to enhance their 3D desktop printing experience.

    The company also will be the Florida headquarters for the next wave of machines in the 3D printing revolution, including Wanhao's upcoming Duplicator 6, 6S, 7 and 7S series machines.

    Ultimate 3D Printing Store is fully accredited and verified by the Better Business Bureau and Dun & Bradstreet. It offers a learning center and support area on its website, as well as a technical service center to receive emails and calls seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

    Imagine that you're an elementary school, high school or university and you want to encourage bright young minds to explore a new technology. Or you're a non-profit organization, trying to drum up awareness of a critical issue but you lack a proper platform to have your agency's message heard.

    Two cutting-edge, Tampa Bay tech companies have the perfect solution.

    Ultimate 3D Printing Store and Tampa Hydrographics Facility are partnering up to offer an unprecedented opportunity to educational facilities and charitable agencies: A limited edition Wanhao Duplicator i3 3D Desktop Printer that can be hydro-dipped to showcase either the logo, school mascot or designated colors of any school, university or charity that wants to leap into the 3D printing revolution.

    A select number of customized 3D desktop printers are available for sale or through donation to a worthwhile cause.

    Ultimate 3D Printing Store believes in giving back to those in the community who make a difference. The company proudly names three charitable causes on its website that it supports: e-Nable, Stomp Out Bullying and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. But the list doesn't stop there.

    Ultimate 3D Printing Store, the first E-commerce 3D desktop printer retail store in Tampa Bay, supports all nonprofit organizations that aim to change the world for the better, and it believes that students, regardless of their grade level, deserve access to the latest and best technology.

    These customized 3D desktop printers aren't just cool - they provide a platform to kick start conversation, to pique young minds about an emerging technology and to serve as a hands-on tutorial for harnessing the power of imagination.

    If you're not familiar with hydro-dipping, this affordable water transfer printing application is another revolutionary procedure that is finally gaining mainstream exposure. Water-based hydrographic dipping transfers an image or pattern to a three-dimensional surface, covering even difficult to reach areas, by fully submersing the item in water to cover the entire surface.

    Simply put, it creates an eye-catching opportunity to showcase one's alma mater or charitable cause in a way that transcends normal means.

    There's never been a better time for innovators, educators and tech-savvy enthusiasts to start incorporating these revolutionary machines in classrooms, showrooms and corporate offices everywhere.
