3DXTECH is located in Grand Rapids Michigan. We started in 2014 by focusing on specialty formulations that focus on functionality. We manufacture all of our filaments in our 24,000 ft2 manufacturing facility using state-of-the-art equipment and processes. Our goal continues to be to make the most innovative filaments on the market - targeting difficult end-use applications where functionality is king.
Carbon Fiber Experts. From PLA to PEKK, we have the broadest portfolio of carbon fiber reinforced materials in 3D. Our formulations are based on over 25 years of experience in the high-performance materials business. This experience helps us deliver the best carbon fiber 3D filament on the market in the widest variety of grades.
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.
Matt Howlett, President/Founder. Matt has 25 years of experience in the high-performance polymers industry, including Bayer, DSM, and Solvay. He brings with him the drive to create innovative solutions to solve difficult technical challenges. Each of the materials he develops is focused on functionality. "What function will this material perform that current materials cannot?" If we can't answer that question - we won't make it. Matt's background includes 25 years in the plastics/chemical industry, a BS in Plastics Engineering, an MBA, and a JD in Intellectual Property Law.
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
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!
