More and more startups, both domestic and global ones, are endeavoring to make affordable 3D printers for tech-savvy consumers, as 3D printing technology is moving from an expensive industrial process to a more consumer-based technology after years of rapid growth.

THRE3D.com is an interactive directory for 3D printing products, projects and locations, navigating techies throughout a marketplace filled with 3D printing organizations and technologies. THRE3D enables users to both compare and review listings. Each product has its own custom forum for owners to collaborate and communicate on issues and improvements. The platform also planned to add video courses on 3D printing and to establish a call center.

The company was founded in the U.S. Feb last year by Roberto Contreras and Myles Lambert, two American youth who just got their degrees in Economics.
