Zach, Hello my name is Gavin, I live in Seattle, and I am turning 11 this week. I really want to get into 3d-printing, and was wondering if there was any place in Seattle that teaches 3d-printing or has use of a printer? I really like your designs. Do you have your own 3d-printer? I am waiting for the Buccaneer printer to come out this April. Any information would be great! Thank you, Gavin

Hey Gavin! Zach here.
I there are a few maker spaces in Seattle that have 3D printers, but I only use shapeways. Even with the prices, you just can't beat the quality.

I do not have a 3D printer, but am raising money for my school (The Northwest School) to get one. And also waiting for the buccaneer!
For learning, I don't think there are really any classes for us young'uns, and I taught myself. Check out which is the program I use, and free (yay). Some learning websites: (seriously, lots of random tuts on youtube)

Have fun!
