The Full Story
littleLot was founded from the passion of a young engineer as a way to grow the additive manufacturing industry.
Our goal is to introduce 3D printing or additive manufacturing (AM) to the next generation as a useful manufacturing tool and help small businesses and entrepreneurs with questions. Offering assistance for the building brands with AM.
We aim to be a stop for small volume production to assist those starting out build a strong foundation of providing 3D printed parts/components, art, etc. to consumers.
Through our products, videos, and podcasts we hope to inspire the imagination of all ages and backgrounds to never stop innovating.
We promise to share our tips, tricks, and experiences to promote the growth of 3D printing across all fields.
Contribute to the growth of Additive Manufacturing by teaching and sharing stories and experiences with others. Through our podcasts and outreach programs with local communities we can work together to promote AM and start developing the workforce of tomorrow!
By starting with products to sell that are 3D printed, interest in designing and printing custom parts consumers can imagine increases. The custom projects with guidance from an Additive Manufacturing Engineer will increase adoption of 3d printing.
Small quantity production opportunities allow small business and consumer to mitigate risk and time in upkeeping their own equipment as they build the foundation of their 3D printing endeavors.
Our STEAM based curriculum projects are designed to help bring 3D printing to K-12 schools and introduce 3D printing to kids of all ages! Helping build the workforce of tomorrow
Our founder Kate Schneidau-Ashby was first introduced to 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing while in engineering school. One of her earlier passions of 3D printing is the collaboration and education of 3D printing on the community scale.
Our team of collaborators and volunteers is comprised of those who share the same passion for collaboration and endless learning and come from many different backgrounds
