Thank You Volunteer 3D Printer Elves

You did it! IC3D & 128 volunteer 3D printer elves donated material, their time, and expertise to 3D print over 17,000 toys for the third annual IC3D 3D Printed Toys for the Marine’s Toys for Tots campaign. These toys were delivered in person to Toys for Tots locations across Ohio and Michigan. This effort was enabled in part by NatureWorks and their generous donation of the resin used to create IC3D 3D printing filament. This achievement was made real by our generous & amazing 3D printer elves.
