The next hot spot for 3D printing is … San Leandro?

One year past, Type An Machines assembling, was developing and selling 3D printers out of a crowded office at the top floor of TechShop.

Nowadays, it operates out of an 18-acre industrial complex in San Leandro, Calif., across the Bay from San Francisco and just south of Oakland. It couldn’t bear to leave TechShop’s maker community behind (and it does still run a wing of its own business from the space), so that it decided to convince as many 3D printer companies as possible to join it in the space.

This week If we can’t take it then we’re going to must create our very own community,” CEO Espen Sivertsen said in a interview.
