A local computer technology center has brought 3D printers the peninsula.

PVNET has bought four CubeX Trio 3D printers and is also offering classes for both beginners and experienced designers, taught by new instructor and game artist Rene Saqui. Students can learn 3D modeling, sculpting and printing. There are also game, jewelry and art design courses.

“The world of 3D printing and design is one of the fastest growing technologies, rapidly evolving into the dominant design method for nearly all industries, including medicine, engineering, architecture, toy design, fashion and animation,” PVNET Director Ted Vegvari said in a statement.

“Thanks to the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council and staff, PVNET has provided access to new technologies early in the game for the benefit of all ages in our community.”

Serving the community for 20 years, PVNET is a nonprofit, dedicated to providing one-of-a-kind, affordable, fun and educational classes and internships for youth, college-level students and adults, as well as free workshops for seniors, according to a press release.

PVNET is located at RPV City Hall at 30940 Hawthorne Blvd. Suite 101. It is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5:30 pm.
