ABOUT US

GadgetBoy ThreeD Solutions cc t/a GadgetBoy3D  is a progressively maturing 3D Printing business, founded in 2015 and based in Swakopmund, Namibia.

In October 2015, GadgetBoy3D became the first full service, "brick-and-mortar" 3D Printing store in Namibia; focused on providing solutions to 3D technology needs. The physical location functions as a showroom, store, workspace, training facility and maker-space.  The business model was designed around creating a space that empowers consumers to become creators, using 3D printing and other associated 3D technology. 

GadgetBoy3D utilises some of the latest developments in 3D technology, such as 3D scanning, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to further enhance small-scale manufacturing services, such as desktop 3D printing. The company’s capabilities are further strengthened by a strong global network of cutting-edge technology suppliers. 

The Team

The team (with more than 5 years of experience working with CAD designs and 2 years of experience in creating 3D printed models), collaborates with design and 3D printing specialists from all over the world; to provide a dedicated, professional service with an internationally acceptable standard.
