Mixed Dimensions Inc (MXD3D), aims to democratize 3D printing with their browser-based 3D design tool geared for the masses.
As part of that plan, MXD3D says they've acquired three specialized 3D printing marketplaces from uFathom Inc., a Canadian based company. The marketplaces are: Maker6, Makerpicks and 3DHippy.
The three sites are dedicated to users who wish to upload, sell, buy and share 3D designs and connect 3D users and designers with local printers around the world.
"A lot of work went into building and populating these marketplaces which we plan to merge with our own MXD3D Gallery in order to accelerate our vision of offering an end-to-end solution to our customers," said Muhannad Taslaq, Co-founder and CEO of MXD3D Inc.
MXD3D is also launching a beta version of its consolidated marketplace and they plan to add features throughout the summer.
The principals say MXD3D will be on the lookout for potential acquisition targets around the globe to complement their offering while simultaneously planning to raise an institutional round of investment funding this summer.
"The main thing about users in 3D printing is that they don't know much about 3D," said co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Baha Abu Nojaim. "We're trying to simplify the process – to make it as simple as drawing. Many of the current marketplaces are static and don't cover the entire spectrum of customer needs. We are embedding our very easy to use 3D modeling tool, our viewer and our printability technology to these marketplaces to give them life and provide a seamless user experience."
Mixed Dimensions was founded in late 2012 by two online gaming engineers from Amman, Jordan who say their frustration with the available 3D modeling tools for game development led them to start MXD3D.
As a result, they developed their own browser-based 3D design tool targeted at the general public.
