Come down to the OC Mini Maker Faire May 9th and check out some 3d printing by Deezmaker, meet the team, make something or get yourself 3d scanned.


Deezmaker 3D Printing retail shop & Hackerspace in Pasadena, Ca manufactures 3-D printer kits Bukobot & Bukito created by Founder Diego Porqueras. In 2012, Deezmaker was the 1st 3-D printer store on the west coast to open up and the second one in the country. Their in-store hackerspace gives 3-D printing enthusiasts a place to get together and find ways to innovate and create do-it-yourself projects (diy). Coming soon, Deezmaker will also open up their new showroom and workshop Makerspace added to their Pasadena location – May 3rd 2015.

3D Printing and Hackshop

Saturday was the Grand Opening of Deezmaker in Pasadena, Southern California’s first 3D Print shop and Hackerspace!  It was indeed a grand celebration with plenty of local makers, hackers and geeks in attendance to welcome the new space.

Located in a small strip mall right off the 210 freeway on Hill St in Pasadena, this place was brought to life with the passion and enthusiasm of Diego Porqueras, the financial support of his dad, Romulo, and lots of moral support from many friends and family members who were all there to celebrate the beginning of a wonderful and unique thing.

Diego first heard about 3D Printers from a CNN report on the MakerBot, afterwards he went to CrashSpace and attended some MakerBot Monthly meetings and was hooked.  Soon after he purchased and built his first 3D Printer which was a Prusa Mendel kit from RepRap and that led to the development of his own 3D Printer the BukoBot.   Diego wanted a machine that was more easily expandable to accommodate larger print jobs as well as inexpensive and easy to build.

A year ago the pieces started coming together and Deezmaker began to take shape, you know things are meant to be when that happens.  The new shop has a very comfortable feel sporting both a roomy area for workshops with two pull down screens and a corner for relaxing stocked with a growing library and a guitar.

Currently the shop is open for the purchasing of parts and filament but, once it’s fully operational it will be open for 3D Printer rentals, as a Hackerspace and will offer a variety of workshops and classes as well as a place to purchase 3D printers and parts.  One of the best things about being at the Grand Opening was seeing the people who had come from just down the street as well as people who had traveled up from the depths of Orange County to support this endeavor.  It was good to see many familiar faces and to make new friends in the maker community.    I was especially pleased to see a Likeame photo frame which had been purchased by Diego, it served as yet another physical reminder of how this community supports one another.Something to watch for in the next few months is a 3D Printer Kiosk opening up at the Irvine Spectrum in Orange County in January 2013.  Imagine being able to go to the mall and have your design printed up while you wait.  Or you can place larger orders and pick them up later.   Brian may also host a pop-up store at OC Mini Maker Faire 2013.

The 3D printer is growing in popularity, more and more people are finding amazing uses and building better, faster, bigger machines.   One day 3D printers will be as common as ink and paper printers, Deezmaker is a step in that direction.
