Mixee Labs Overview

Company Overview

Mixee Labs enables anyone to design and buy 3d printed products. We are an e-commerce platform that addresses a growing trend of personalized production through application based design. We empower the consumer by having them participate in the design process, while allowing the designer to quickly go to market, build a brand, and earn passive income.

In each web app, or "creator," the consumer can actively tweak the parameters of the template that the designer has set up. Anybody will be able to create unique objects without knowing how to model, and watch them come to life without needing to buy a 3D printer. Working with our production partner, Shapeways, we manufacture these objects on-demand using 3D printing and ship directly to the customers.

Using Mixee Labs, both designer and shopper have more flexibility in terms of creativity and final product design. The designer doesn’t need to remodel for specific requests and his customer base can build on his ideas, evolving the model into a suite of dynamic objects. Initially, we are launching with our JavaScript Platform. However, those who are more designers than coders need not worry. We are currently developing a complementary platform that will enable 3D modelers who don’t know how to code to make creators as well.

We launched with a figurine creator, Mixee Me, in November. Within the first month, it was a top 5 shop on Shapeways, and in Time Magazine's Top 10 3D Printed Gifts of the year.

We will work with all designers to make sure their prints are manufacturable, and consult with them on material choices before we publish each creator.

Some Examples of our Product..

Quark Jewelry Creator by Stijn van der Linden of Studio Virtox

Quark Jewelry’s innovative design draws on the intricate movements of subatomic particles. In Stijn’s own words, "Ever since I first learned about subatomic particles and their spiral movements in magnetic fields, I could not help but be inspired. I got to work to capture this beauty in jewelry." Virtox has been a leading figure in the 3D printing community and his designs have been featured on Wired and the Today Show.

What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing is a growing industry that is rapidly capturing the imagination of everybody. Forbes estimates that 3D Printing will be a $3.1 billion industry by 2016.

With 3D printing, objects are built layer by layer. This makes one off production more cost effective.

Currently, people use 3D printing to make everyday objects like repair parts, jewelry, toys, and other customized goods. However, the number of people who can make these files are limited. Here at Mixee, we want to bridge the gap and make 3D printing accessible to anybody. We want to create products that make it easy for anybody to 3D model.
