Prevents user burns, prints 90% faster than competitors, 200% larger build area than same-sized printers.*
Targeting a $5.6B addressable market.
$140K pre-sales signed since Q3 2017.
The #1 injury caused by active 3D printers are burns.
The R3 Printer features Active Overheat Prevention, a proprietary system that eliminates the risk of getting burned. If a print job is overheating, the R3 printer senses it and immediately pauses, doing away with human intervention.
Most 3D printers jam by absorbing too much heat.
R3 Printer with Active Overheat Prevention prevents jams.
An off-the-shelf (unmonitored) print head assembly is compared to a test rig with Active Overheat Prevention™. Both testing rigs start at room temperature (green colors) and rapidly heat up (red colors). After the Active Overheat Prevention™ system detects overheating, the heater cartridges shut down and the print head returns to a safer temperature.
The Active Overheat Prevention senses overheating and initializes, letting the printer cool before a jam can occur. Unmonitored print head assemblies continue to absorb heat until prints eventually fail.
The R3 Printer is 90% faster than contemporary 3D printers.
Working with aerospace engineers, we redesigned key printer components from the ground up, resulting in an 84% weight reduction and the discovery of other secret-sauce upgrades that further boost speed. The result is nearly doubled speeds.
An off-the-shelf 3D printer assembly is paced against our R3 Printer Test rig. Our optimized hardware assembly travels significantly faster — and we’re still pushing for even greater speeds.
The R3 Printer has a re-designed interior that utilizes the full internal volume of the chassis itself, leading to a 200% increase in build volume compared to current printers of the same chassis size.
3D Print Manufacturers are companies that produce 3D printed goods for b2b and b2c clients.
For them, the value proposition of the R3 Printer is straightforward.
Less dangerous printers means lower insurance rates for companies -> money saved.
90% increased print speeds means more capacity. Manufacturers can now produce almost double the quantity of goods -> more money made.
Bigger build areas mean bigger individual print jobs or more units per print session -> more money made, larger products offered.
The 3D Print Services Industry - also referred to as Industrial 3D Printing - is growing at a 27%+ compounded annualized growth rate (CAGR) now through 2023.
As of 2018, the market size is estimated at $1.85B.
In 2023, the Industrial 3D Printing industry will generate $5.6B yearly.
3D Print Manufacturers are increasing their inventory to meet the demand — and replacing their old 3D printers along the way.
Our beachhead market are SMB 3D Print Manufacturers in the USA and Canada.
SMB 3D Print Manufacturers are companies with between 5 and 500 3D printers.
They produce 3D Printed products for both b2b and b2c markets.
The United States and Canada has 670 SMB 3D Print Manufacturers today.
It's a highly fragmented market with no standard hardware — a big opportunity for us.
There is also no incumbent 3D printer provider focused on the SMB 3D Print Manufacturer market – we have a winner-take-all opportunity.
We are aiming to gain dozens of customers within the first six months of production through a muscular team of experienced enterprise sales professionals.
Our goal is simple: We are aiming to capture 5% of the Industrial 3D Printing market in the next five years. That’s a total market size of $285M.
We've had some big wins on the traction front and are excited to share.
R3 Printing has signed $140,000 of pre-sales from customers in our target market in the last 3 months.
Pre-sales provide a signal to the market that a customer has identified a pain point or revenue-generating opportunity and that they’re willing to pay money for a product that allows them to execute.
Hardware is capital intensive to develop — pre-sales provide an important signal to prospective investors that the market wants this product to exist.
R3 Printing has 4 non-provisional patents already filed on our technological innovations.
Patents provide an integral way for businesses to protect their intellectual property after having spent money to fund breakthroughs.
Patents are important because they create moats — areas where competitors cannot act without explicitly infringing on your patents — and allow a single company to reap the rewards of their innovation.

Halo Aerospace is a West Palm Beach-based aerospace R&D company. Founder John
Calloway comes from a background of aerospace engineering and 3D Printing, having utilized both to establish Halo Manufacturing in 2015. At present, Halo Aerospace is developing novel applications for space flight technologies. We will be working with them to strenuously test the R3 Printer.
R3 Printing is a current member of the Ocean Accelerator.
We are in Cincinnati, Ohio until June 2018 in order to accelerate our development.
Our business model includes 2 revenue streams:
We sell 3D Print manufacturers the R3 Printer - a product optimized for their enterprise 3D Print manufacturing needs.
We have additional revenue stream opportunities through consulting, factory-workflow optimization, and product warranties. SaaS opportunities also exist for cloud file management.
In the near future, we plan to create three products to expand our reach in the Industrial 3D Printing industry:
Our objective in these products is to fully automate the 3D Printing factory of tomorrow.
We’re reaching for “Factory-as-a-Service” - a world of fully automated hardware in factories.
Automated printers, factory robots - a fully humanless, scalable, factory of tomorrow.
The R3 Printer provides our enterprise clients with a strong feature-set at a competitive price point.
We are experienced executives raised on the Lean Startup principles. We keep our team tight and execute directly.
Daniel Downs, Co-Founder, Strategy
Moving into the 3D Printing industry after a successful exit from Manhattan commercial real estate, Dan and Paul found that current 3D Printers had massive impediments that prevented them from widespread adoption in enterprise settings. They decided to tackle these problems directly. Dan brings to the table a deep background in business development, sales, and strategy.
Paul Sieradzki, Co-Founder, Product
During his 5 years as an operations executive, Paul has cultivated trade-secret processes and methods for producing ahead-of-schedule project deliverables.

I believe 3D printing will aide in the improvements of medical devices and applications.
I believe these guys have what it takes to usher in the future of 3D printing. They've identified some key points which have kept 3D printing from reaching the mainstream and then conquered them. Best of luck!
I saw the founder speak at Launch Sydney and was impressed by the team and the tech.
