The fourth industrial revolution is upon us and 3D printing is one of its core pillars. As AB3D, we exist to lower barriers of access to this technology in order for Africa's youth to leverage 3D printing for development. We believe in the potential of 3D printing to change lives and we see it as an apt tool to effect systemic and sustainable change through the development of homegrown solutions to local problems.
We exist to lower barriers of access to 3D printing technology by building quality and affordable 3D printers from recycled electronic waste parts and other, locally available materials. For us, the 3D printer is just a tool so we not only build and sell the machine, but we also sell 3D printed products (with a bias for high impact products) and offer 3D printing, 3D design, and training services in an effort to disseminate the technology. We bring people's ideas to life
