Hobby Club on mission to revolutionize 3D technologies in NZ

Auckland, February 3, 2014 - Having established working tie-ups with Central City, Onehunga and Ponsonby libraries in Auckland, New Zealand’s first 3D-oriented Hobby Club is now fast progressing towards its goal of developing working relationships with country’s universities, colleges, schools and other educational and technological institutions.

This Auckland based Hobby Club has come up with a unique idea of throwing its membership open to all innovative minds to allow them the access of 3D technologies and equipments including high definition printer, to themselves design their innovations and models. The club also imparts professional training to its members to make them skillful for optimum utilization of 3D technologies and equipments.

A Migrant from China – Tony Zhou, with highly professional and innovative bent of mind, has started this Hobby Club to revolutionize the use of 3D technologies in NZ. Easy and affordable terms have been laid down for becoming the member of the Hobby Club. “The idea of opening such a business is to bring 3D technology into people’s daily life" says Tony.

The 3D Hobby club team is already on a mission to extensively hold display and training workshops of their Hobby Club. The Club not only imparts training classes, but, encourages its trained members to hold incentivized training classes to ameliorate the goal of spreading the utilization of 3D technologies throughout the length and breadth of the country.

Each member of the Hobby Club is allowed the access of high-end computers with a range of relevant software, machines like 3D printers and engraving machine, professional tools as well as ample space to comfortably work on projects both individually and collectively.

The club has also prepared its website http://3dhobby.co.nz/ for the perusal of students, professionals, digital designers and entrepreneurs.

The Hobby Club management has pledged to spend at least 8 of their annual sales income for the technology up-gradation and improve infrastructure and facilities for the club members.

Emme Lee, Marketing Manager, 3D Hobby Club, says, "This is definitely a fantastic idea to allow everyone to get access to advanced technology."
