Preparing for global growth: All3DP concludes another financing round
November 10, 2020
All3DP, operator of a leading global internet platform for 3D printing located in Germany, has successfully closed another financing round. This round, involving an investment volume of over EUR two million, is led by the previous investors High-Tech Gründerfonds, Bayern Kapital and Deutsche Balaton AG. The new funds will flow into preparations for an international financing round in 2021. All3DP runs the Craftcloud marketplace that links customers to suitable 3D printing service providers worldwide. Currently, the company already reaches 2.4 million users per month via its online magazine, All3DP.com, far more than any of its competitors.
All3DP operates in the rapidly expanding 3D printing market. Across all vertical markets, a steadily increasing number of private users and companies are taking advantage of 3D printing or additive manufacturing for their own production processes. All3DP’s online marketplace Craftcloud serves as an interface between customers and 3D printing service providers worldwide. Craftcloud’s all-in-one 3D printing and price comparison service offers customers price transparency and market overview in real time, while affiliated manufacturers gain access to new customers and sales markets via the platform. Due to the large number of exclusively professional 3D printing service providers, Craftcloud is able to offer the entire range of commonly requested processes and materials. Craftcloud attracts customers from every continent, mostly, however, from North America and Europe.
With its English-language content, the online magazine All3DP.com is the international market leader in the field of 3D printing. 2.4 million users visit All3DP.com every month, around 40 percent of the readers are from North America. Because the content is additionally provided in Spanish, Portuguese, French and German, All3DP also reaches non-English speaking users and areas. The magazine and Craftcloud are synergistically linked: All3DP.com shows solutions for 3D printing applications and then directs interested users to the Craftcloud marketplace.
The current financing round will allow the company to meet the demands of the fast-growing market, to further expand its leading market position and to enter new international markets.
The role of 3D printing in the manufacture of physical goods is becoming more and more important, which translates into a global market volume of over EUR 12 trillion. We are firmly anchored in this powerful market with our Craftcloud marketplace. As a first mover and thanks to the highest user numbers in the market with our magazine All3DP.com, we are ideally positioned for strong growth.
