WASP (World Advanced Saving Project) is an Italian company specializing in the production of Delta type FDM 3D Printers. The company stands out for the vision of its founder Massimo Moretti, whose dream is to be able to develop a 3D printer capable of printing houses in an completely eco-fiendly way to help solve some of the worlds housing issues. Through the sale of its first 3D printer, the PowerWASP, WASP was able to develop a prototype for a 3D printer capable of printing with a particular type of clay material suitable - if the technology were to be sufficiently scaled up, for making habitable houses.

"Kentstrapper was born in 2011 as part of the RepRap Open Source project and was the result of the collaborative effort by many people and the web-sharing of their ideas.
The 1st italian RepRap center was created in Florence, along with a team for researching and developing this low cost rapid-prototyping technology. As Kentstrapper grows up, new ideas flow in, such as the “3d printing school project”, that wants to help students learn to use this new kind of technology, or the ""Object of the month section""."

Leapfrog 3D Printers was founded in 2012 when AV Flexologic, a Dutch manufacturer of machines for the flexographic industry, was in need of producing prototypes and unavailable spare parts for their machines. After evaluating the poor or expensive options available in 3D printing at that time, the decision was made to develop the ultimate easy to use, sturdy and versatile 3D printer. This is how the classic Creatr was born. AV Flexologic is still Leapfrog's (inhouse) client and gives regular feedback on all machines.
The leading 3D desktop 3D printer manufacturer in Portugal. It started with one 3D printer model, the BEETHEFIRST, which stands out for great attention to aesthetics, detail and portability and was the first to introduce a stylish consumer design to a desktop 3D printer.
"We want to imprint change through 3D printing. We believe that 3D printing will change the paradigm of mass-production, bringing it closer to the individual consumer, in such a way as to take us into a more leisure-oriented society. We consider personal creative expression to be a way to the future, unlike any economic theory that, during the last few years, has left us with no space for breathing creativity and inspiring innovation in other types and forms."

Start-up founded in 2013 it produces and sells the Araknia Prusa i3 3D pritner. The company, founded by 7 professionals operating in the field of robotics, engineering and design, focuses on using 3D printing to improve people's lives.
SDM is a small company in Northern Italy that make two models of FFF 3D printers: the 3D2 Pro, fully assembles, and the 3D1, sold both as a kit and assembled. The company is also very active organizing course and events to help more people familiarize with desktop 3D printing opportunities.
The company byFlow was founded in 2014 by Floris Hoff, industrial product designer with over 4 years experience in 3D printing. In FabLab Maastricht he worked as a volunteer in maintaining and improving the 11 3D printers. Floris graduated with a project on the development of a unique granulate extruder which makes it possible to print with granulate, powder and paste. This makes it possible to print 10x faster and cheaper and to use recycled plastic.
To produce a compact, mobile, multi-faceted, multi-functional 3D printer with easily exchangeable extruders that can print a plethora of materials that is easy to use and readily accessible to everyone. The team pays a lot of attention to the design, quality and user-friendliness of his printer. Like a laptop, the printer is foldable, so that you can transport and store the printer easily, safely and without any fear of dust contamination.
Always being innovative
The team also still conducts research on new material possibilities with colleagues at FabLab Maastricht, Chemelot Campus in Geleen (NL), Maastricht University, polytechnic Zuyd and LIOF.
We provide creative minds a valuable tool to realize their ideas by developing and selling premium desktop 3D printers.
Our products are highly suitable for business and education use. But also for the end consumer who values upgradability, reliability, ease of use, customer service and premium build quality.

In 2012, three young engineers set themselves an ambitious goal: to create the first 100% Mexican 3D printer. Two years later, Colibrí 3D entered the arena, selling 200 units the very same day it was launched until now have sold more than 600 units in Mexico. Francisco Martín del Campo, Juan Pablo González and Ricardo Madrigal are the people behind this project, all of them engineers at the technological firm InterLatin, based in Guadalajara, México.
With the support of the Mexican Federal and State Government through a program for promoting technology development, the team began the process to create its own 3D printer.
Makers of the $999 Dremel Idea Builder 3D printer, one of the most highly rated in relation to the price. The company is also partners with HP in the Sprout project and with Autodesk in the Spark project.
