"Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer, Limor ""Ladyada"" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Adafruit has grown to over 50 employees in the heart of NYC with a 15,000+ sq ft. factory.
Adafruit has expanded offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. Limor was the first female engineer on the cover of Wired magazine and was recently awarded Entrepreneur magazine's Entrepreneur of the year."
"What originally started out as a couple of guys who created a 3D printed hand to help one child in need has grown into the Enabling the Future world wide global community of tinkerers, engineers, 3D print enthusiasts, occupational therapists, university professors, designers, parents, families, artists, students, teachers and people who just are creating hands for people in need and sharing their designs with the world for free. These people are coming together to create, innovate, re-design and give a “helping hand” to those that need it – whether it is helping to print parts for them, creating a completed device for them or simply helping to guide them as they build one themselves.
There are people around the Globe – 3d printing fingers and hands for children they will never meet, classes of high school students who are making hands for children in their local communities, a group of people that are risking their lives to get these devices onto people in 3rd World countries and new stories every day of parents working with their children to make a hand together. The seed was planted and the Tree is branching out, growing and becoming more beautiful than ever imagined!"
"Imprima 3D is the first community in Brazil for designers working on creating designs to be 3D printed. Goal of the company is to encourage the union of these professionals to display their portfolio, discuss themes and to develop new products and means of prodcuction based on 3D printing for end users
Imprima 3D aims to attract the best designers in the country to spread it, share opinions and drawings, as well as showcase the talents of each, boosting sales and generating business, as part of the profit from the sale of the pieces is returned to those who created them. In addition, the comapany serves all kinds of customers with industrial projects through product prototyping and pre-series.
The company's newest generation 3D printers can meet the majority of demands for 3D printing printing, including metal, flexible, transparent, colored, among many other plastic materials upon request."
Thingarage is a crowdsourcing platform for 3D models. A place where everyone interested in getting a 3D model, firms, agencies or simply users, could easily get access to the world of creative design and 3D printing! Designed as an open platform for digital fabrication, Thingarage also aims to provide a true breeding ground of ideas for 3D artists giving them spaces for their portfolios and social features to let them interact easily.
At Inventables we believe the world is at the beginning of a new renaissance. We see power in product development shifting from major corporations to individual designers and entrepreneurs. The availability of low cost manufacturing tools and low cost distribution on internet sites are leveling the playing field. Small teams can now make unique high value products that major corporations can’t justify because they aren't for the masses.
Seeed is a hardware innovation platform for makers to grow inspirations into differentiating products. By working closely with technology providers of all scale, Seeed provides accessible technologies with quality, speed and supply chain knowledge.
