About Us

3dpbm was founded with a simple vision: get people excited about additive manufacturing. AM represents an exciting future well beyond the industry. It has the potential to change the world as we know it.

No doubt it’s exciting, but the pace of innovation in the AM industry can be overwhelming. And it can be difficult to keep track of every development, let alone make sense of the big picture. Well, that’s what we do: make sense of the big picture.
