This 3D Print Entrepreneur Needs Your Help Today

By on April 22nd, 2014 in Event


Chris Thorpe, the person behind “I Can Make”, needs your assistance TODAY. 

Thorpe is one of only ten finalists selected from hundreds of entries vying for an opportunity to pitch their innovative idea to Sir Richard Branson and a panel of distinguished and successful entrepreneurs this May. It’s part of Virgin Media Pioneers’ Pitch to Rich competition. 

Thorpe’s entry is his concept for a 3D model service that provides specially made kits for home 3D printing and assembly. It sounds like a great service for kids – and those older folks who are really kids at heart. Their intent is to deliver twelve unique 3D model kits this year, including such notable – and previously unavailable – 3D models as Stephenson’s Rocket, a very early steam engine from 1829, the first British Jet, the Gloster E28/39 and of course, the Virgin Spaceship One. 

But in order to qualify he will need your vote. And you’ll need to vote before April 23rd, mid-day UK time. 

It’s time for the 3D printing community to step up and support one of their own. Please vote for Thorpe’s project at the link below and raise awareness of 3D printing technology and potential.
