SD3D Acquires 3D Materials Research Firm 3D Matter

By | 3D Printing, In the News, Rapid Prototyping, Software | No Comments

SD3D and 3D Matter have come to an agreement in which SD3D will acquire the New York based software company, 3D Matter. 3D Matter launched the platform in 2015 in order to make it easier to visualize the performance of 3D printed materials based on empirical data derived from mechanical testing over 3000+ authentic 3D printed parts.

The acquisition includes 3D Matter as well as their flagship material optimization platform Optimatter. Optimatter is a web-based platform in which designers, engineers and researchers can optimize their 3D printed parts by ensuring the right materials and processing parameters are chosen for the specific part application.

Large Format 3D Printing – Aon Town

By | 3D Printing, Architecture Case Study, In the News, Rapid Prototyping | No Comments

Read about how SD3D worked with Aon to design and print a record breaking 9′ x 10.5′ model city. This giant city helped to show off the vast insurance portfolio offered by Aon to it’s clients and allowed us to test the limits of 3D printing scaled architectural models. In total this massive effort took over 200 design hours and 3000 printing hours that yielded 300 individual parts weighing a total of 66 kilograms. We assembled this record breaking model into four quadrants that could be broken down to easily transport between trade events. This project was completed within 30 days from concept to final delivery.

SD3D Accepting Bitcoin on ABC 10 San Diego

By | In the News | No Comments

Yesterday morning Jonathan Horn of ABC 10 San Diego visited the SD3D headquarters to show an example of what can be accomplished using bitcoin and the Bitcoin network.  We began accepting bitcoin for 3D printing and 3D design work nearly 2 years ago, and while customers using this payment method are few, we are a great option for anyone looking to spend their bitcoin rather than sell them.

In fact, you can read all our involvement in our Bitcoin Meets 3D Printing article from October 1st, 2013 – just about exactly two years ago.

While our employees do not get paid in bitcoin, ABC 10 was following Airbitz, a startup in downtown San Diego who does just this.  Be sure to watch the segment with SD3D’s CEO David Feeney below:  Read More

SAN DIEGO THE LIST: Is 3D Printing The Way Of The Future?

By | In the News | No Comments

SD3D was the recent feature for San Diego The List! This well made video takes a look at our new offices and takes you on a tour with David and Bennett.

SD3D Printing is one of San Diego’s few 3D printing companies….and they’re expanding!
They recently moved to a larger location near Miramar Road after they grew out of their last work space. The company has grown extensively in the past three years and say 3D Printing is the way of the future!

SD Reader – Printers That Can Make (Almost) Anything

By | In the News | No Comments

SD3D was recently featured in the San Diego Reader.  This article and video were made just before moving to our new offices but they do a good job highlighting our work and best-in-class San Diego 3D Printing services.

David Feeney and Bennett Berger co-founded SD3D on Convoy Street. It’s a bootstrapped, two-guys-will-print-it operation, a storefront space the size of a dentist’s waiting room. Over-tabled and over-strewn with wires, needle-nose pliers, gears, laser-light motors, Frappuccinos, and half a dozen desktop 3-D printers, whole or in various stages of undress. Four printers are busily at work, making robot parts, “26 hours a day,” says Berger. Their nozzles or extrusion tips zip and zigzag a solid object into being: “It’s an additive technology,” Feeney says. “It builds. You’re not cutting anything away.”
