What is the I2P Lab?

3D printing and scanning are revolutionary new technology that have exploded onto the world scene in recent years, enabling virtually anyone to create things nearly as quickly and easily as imagining them. Now anyone can learn about it and do it, in a fully-equipped workshop, with training and expertise to help you all the way from idea to product!
