FARGO — Fargo Additive Manufacturing Equipment (FAME 3-D) is holding a free workshop for the community to come try 3D printing.

3D printing takes a digital design and brings it to life as a physical object.

FAME 3-D started as a repair shop in Fargo four years ago, and now is a growing manufacturing plant that employs 65 people.

The company wants to add at least a couple dozen more workers, because the pandemic helped get people interested in 3-D printers, creating more demand.

The company hopes a free workshop next week will engage the community, and for some, possibly land them a job.

"I think a lot of people are unaware of it and that seeing it firsthand, that light bulb moment happens where we are able to see new ways for 3D printers to be used," said FAME 3D president John Olhoft.

That workshop is Wednesday, June 23, from 6 to 8 p.m.

It's at FAME 3D's plant at 1001 25th St. N.

More workshops may be added this summer.
