In 2012 we explored in Ideascout thinktank what are the Biggest Opportunities for industry transformation and renaissance. It became obvious that 3D printing will have huge impact in the manufacturing industry and many other areas. We decided to invest our time and curiosity in this exciting technology. After four years of acceleration it was time to spin off 3DStep business.

3DStep is private owned startup, established in 2016. 3DStep is the pioneer company to provide industrial scale metal AM services in Finland. Now the company is profitable and growing.

Our mission is to make 3D printing business as usual, in all industries, especially in the Nordic countries. We implement this with three 3D steps with our customers and industrial community:

  1. Get familiar with 3D printing, benefits and examples (Community events, talks, workshops)
  2. Learn & acquire basic and advanced skills (Training, design anfd manufacturing pilots)
  3. Apply 3D printing in R&D and production (manufacturing services)

3DStep customers come from all industries, from multi national manufacturing, engineering and design companies to innovative outliers and startups.
