where to find a 3D printer nearby

we built makexyz.com because we didn't have a good answer to that question. 

we were working on a 3D printing project at the time -- designing a light switch cover with a hook on the bottom, so you could walk in the door turn on the lights and hanging your keys -- our printer was out of order, and so we found ourselves waiting around for our ordered prints to arrive. which was frustrating in that there musta been someone in the neighborhood with a 3D printer. 

we tried following scents of molten plastic around town… but kept ending up at the Waffle House.

so we launched makexyz.com. to help people find 3D printers nearby; to help people make stuff.

let's see how we're done: go to makexyz.com and search your city, state, or postal/zip. we indubitably have 3D printers near you. but if we don't, either get your friend to list his/hers, or email nathan@makexyz.com and yell at me.
