Amsterdam-based 3D Hubs, the online manufacturing platform, today announced its entry into the French market, with new offices opening in Paris. Putting to use the €18 million Series C funding it raised in the summer, this move is also backed by FutureShape, headed by iPod inventor and iPhone co-inventor Tony Fadell. The move will provide French engineers with virtually unlimited production capacity, from a global supplier network.
In most European countries, engineers still rely on traditional manufacturing supply, causing concerns related to pricing, efficiency and scalability – a problem 3D Hubs is seeking to solve.
