About Us

"We make filament for us.  You can buy what we don't use."  That's the mantra here at 3DX.  We love to print with our high-performance materials and to push the envelope on performance while putting the fun into functionality.  

3DXTECH is located in West Michigan, just outside of Grand Rapids.  We started in 2014 by focusing on specialty formulations that we hoped the market would appreciate.  Thanks to our great customers, in late 2015, we moved into our new 6,000 ft2 manufacturing facility and got right to work.  Our goal continues to be to make the most innovative filaments on the market - targeting difficult end-use applications where functionality is king.

Custom formulations.  We have worked on several customer-specified projects to create a custom filament.  We consult with you to determine the needs of your project and then create a solution for your specific needs.  

We look forward to working with you on your next project!  Contact us if you have an idea that you'd like us to work on.  Some of our best projects were inspired by our most valuable resource - our great customers! 

Put the Fun in Functionality with 3DX!
