The company was set up in March 2012 by two young entrepreneurs from TU Delft (Delft University of Technology) in the Netherlands. They found the existing 3D printers were too expensive and decided to make an affordable 3D printer for the world market. Their Creatr fully assembled 3D printer has a large build volume, sleek design and is priced at €1,250. Since its launch it has received a lot of interests worldwide especially from US market. Also in a very short period the company has built up a worldwide distribution network from Argentina to Australia.
