Jordan 3D printing start-up launches into private beta.
MXD3D aim to aims to democratise 3D Printing through a browser-based 3D design tool.
Mixed Dimensions Inc (MXD3D), has announced the launch of its end-to-end 3D printing software Technology for businesses and consumers.
The company, which was founded in 2012 by two online gaming engineers living in Amman and was a 2013 Alchemist Accelerator startup, also made the announcement of a seed round of investment of a little under $1m from a group of venture funds and angel investors in the US, Europe and Middle-East, including the Badia Impact Fund and Ecosystem Ventures, alongside the Alchemist Accelerator.
Baha Abu Nojaim, CTO and co-founder of MXD, said: "The core technology behind MXD3D generates 100% printable G-Code on the fly, removing one of the biggest blockers for 3D printing. Furthermore, it is designed to run on multiple platforms, in line with today's multi-platform environments, and the need for a 3D design software that supports touch screens and the most basic and native tool, a user's fingertips.
"We are focused on making MXD3D community driven, so that content created by users is stored in the cloud and shared with others directly from the editor. The editor is designed with a focus on ease-of-use and the utilisation of the simplest concepts in life, like drawing, images and collaboration to generate 3D content easily. We designed MXD3D to utilise computer resources efficiently while on the browser or a tablet."
MXD3D said its mission is to provide an end-to-end solution that is accessible to all users, allowing them to create or edit 3D content with its design software. The tool is powered by a marketplace where users can share, buy, sell and print their 3D models, either locally on their own printers or through 3D printing services companies such as Shapeways, Sculpteo and iMaterlize which have been integrated with the tools.
The company is also offering enterprises and businesses the ability to embed the tools in their websites.
Co-founder and CEO of MXD3D, Muhannad Taslaq said: "3D Printing is the next big thing in technology and will have an effect on our lives. One of the major issues that is standing in the way of 3D printing is the availability of easy-to-use design software that can [empower] users to unleash their creativity - it's just like going back and working inside your parent's garage and just tinkering. Much of the news in the 3D industry today is about hardware technology but if there is nothing to print or if the experience is not seamless, then it will be hard to sell a lot of printers."
