Overview

About us

We created a one stop shop model for B2B solutions in 3D Printing (IoT, Robotics, Materials, Scanning, etc). One location where you can realize your innovation strategy much faster than by doing it by yourself and at only a fraction of the cost. We take away most of the hurdles to get started and the market has been helping us the past year in providing new generations of machines (HP), materials and Software (Autodesk). We are building exciting new business cases with and for our partners to capitalize on the possibilities and opportunities this provides.
