OUR STORY

Polar 3D began life in XXX as a manufacturer of a pioneering 3D printer. Our printer uses the Polar Coordinates systems, which lets users print a huge build volume using fewer parts for greater reliability and lower build costs.

As the company evolved, we recognized the need to provide both 3D printing focused curriculum and a platform for making that would simplify the design process. So we acquired Steamtrax curriculum, partnered with Makers Empire and created the Polar Cloud as a free online platform for making. We also partnered with GE to create the GE Additive 3D printing program for schools to help develop future talent in STEM, engineering and making.

Today, our cloud-based platform, the Polar Cloud, is the making platform for members in over 95 countries to access networked 3D printers from over 60 countries. Together, we’re helping to change the future of making and manufacturing.
