Founding partners Guillaume Feliksdal and Wilgo Feliksdal (his father) started the company with the idea to make 3D printing easier and improve the quality. It all began when Guillaume first needed a 3d printer to produce low cost prototype parts for his humanoid walking robot. This was a creation which he made after his study of mechatronics at the Delft Technical University. While he was assembling his bought 3D printer kit, Guillaume saw a lot of room for improvement. After a few months of thinkering he got his first newly created 3d printer, which resulted in a printer that is reliable, easy to assemble, calibrate and maintain.
Wilgo Feliksdal was closely involved from the beginning. He also has a technical background and gained wide experience from having high ranking position in managemnt in several large companies in the field of mechatronics.With the innovation power of Guillaume and the management and sales experience of Wilgo they form a good team. Even in this fast paced environment in the field of 3d printing they made a professional and flying start. They received a nomination for Surprise Hit of 2014 from MAKE Magazine, a respected entity in 3d printing.
