Our Business Incubator

In May 2022, 3dHoudini launched its first official 3d Print Hub through the 3d Incubator program. This flagship print hub was created through a partnership with Black Hills 3D Print Hub Cooperative in Lead, South Dakota. 3dHoudini’s business incubator program is providing the, not-for-profit, production cooperative with equipment, training and technology.

As part of 3dHoudini’s agreement with Black Hills Print Hub, it has provided the print hub with state-of-the-art equipment, including a Stratasys J55 3D printer, Oryx scaWaterjet Spray Booth, and training to use both pieces of equipment.

The Stratasys J55 full color PolyJet printer can create smooth, detailed parts that convey final-product aesthetics and incorporates the widest variety of colors and materials into a single model for unbeatable efficiency. The Oryx scaWaterjet is a water jetting spray booth capable of support material removal for various 3D printing processes.

Our Business Incubator

In March 2022, 3dHoudini acquired its first Stratasys J55 3D printer, launching its business incubator program. The business incubator will provide equipment leasing, material discounts, education and assistance in securing loans and grants for its future 3dPrint Hub™ service providers.

3dHoudini strives to provide opportunity for the less advantaged and to drive the democratization of manufacturing and design. For that reason, 3dH Incubator will focus on HUBZones and concentrated areas of poverty (R/ECAPs).

Black Hills 3d Print Hub Cooperative

Black Hills Print Hub will provide order fulfillment and manufacturing for all sales generated though 3dhoudini’s Alpha Project and NFT marketplace. The print hub will connect to 3dHoudini’s NFT and 3d Print Hub marketplaces through 3dHoudini’s CAD token®, CAD stream® and Tokenized Manufacturing® technologies. The Black Hills Print Hub will also provide an opportunity as a testing ground for 3dHoudini to further develop its streaming security, order batching, production process simplification technologies.
