3D Hubs: 3D Printing Accessible to Everyone
3D Hubs was founded out of frustration that the industry was not delivering on the promise of 3D printing to decentralize manufacturing. In 2013 3D Hubs started its mission to connect all 3D printers globally into one online platform and make them locally accessible. By connecting everyone to nearby 3D Printer owners, 3D Hubs is accelerating a future of local and on-demand production. Today, 3D Hubs is already providing over one Billion people with access to 3D printing within 10 miles of their home.
