Recreus is the fusion of “Recycle”, “Create” and “Use”, words that form part of the company’s philosophy and soul. A story of entrepreneurship, dreams and enthusiasm that started in 2010 in a garage and has grown to what we know today. An internationally established and positioned company, pioneer in the development of flexible filament for 3D printers, with its brand Filaflex, leader in its category. This globally recognised brand has gained a firm hold in the flexible filament sector and made huge inroads in the 3D printing industry.
Once upon a time…
Our founder and CEO, Ignacio García, an industrial engineer by training, has always had a creative and entrepreneurial vision. In 2010, as an avid enthusiast of technology, he visited the Euromold fair in Germany and bought his first ever 3D printer, with which he would make inroads into this new field.
Testing it out and printing the first prototypes, he soon realised that the existing plastics on the market were too rigid and inflexible for certain 3D printing jobs, which also hampered the creation and design of other products or materials developed with this technology. So, he set up shop in his parents’ garage and started working on the development of a much more elastic and flexible material suitable for this type of 3D printer.
And that was what led to the advent of Filaflex® in 2013, the world’s first truly elastic filament for 3D printers. This breakthrough responded to the creative need to innovate and opened it up to new materials. A disruption in 3D printing.
With Filaflex, you can show the world how you print your own shoes with your 3D printer and our flexible Filaflex filament… from your very own home!
The news quickly spread across the world. Our shoes and Filaflex appeared in practically all international media outlets, from Japan to the US to Russia and back. It was absolutely amazing! As a result, we’ve never stopped going and we’ve been motivated us to keep on innovating and working hard and growing as a company.
