Jordanian startup Mixed Dimensions (MXD3D), a 2013 Alchemist Accelerator graduate and venture-backed startup announced today the acquisition of three specialized 3D Printing marketplaces from uFathom Inc., a Calgary, Canada based company.

Rather than build its own marketplaces for 3D designs, MXD3D has purchased three exisiting marketplaces and integrated into its own.

The three marketplaces are maker6.com, a well-known marketplace to connect 3D users and designers with local printers around the world, makerpicks.com and 3Dhippy.com, two marketplaces to upload, sell, buy and share 3D designs.

"A lot of work went into building and populating these marketplaces which we plan to merge with our own MXD3D Gallery in order to accelerate our vision of offering an end-to-end solution to our customers," said Muhannad Taslaq, Co-founder and CEO of MXD3D Inc.

"Many of the current marketplaces are static and don't cover the entire spectrum of customer needs. Therefore, we are embedding our very easy to use 3D modeling tool, our Viewer and our printability technology to these marketplaces to give them life and provide a seamless user experience," adds Baha Abu Nojaim, the other Co-founder and CTO.

Founded in late 2012 by two online gaming engineers living in Amman, Jordan, MXD3D received $1 million seed investment from Silicon Badia, Ecosystem Ventures and various angels. Based in San Carlos, California, MXD3D provides the whole workflow needed to print a 3D model, from searching in the MXD3D Marketplace for an existing 3D model, modifying an existing file or creating something from scratch, all the way to getting the printable 3D file or sending it to a printing service. The company is also working on the option to allow enterprises and businesses to embed MXD3D's tools in their websites and enable their customers to personalize and print products immediately from their website.

MXD3D is launching a beta version of its consolidated marketplace today and additional services and features will be released throughout the summer.

The startup says it will keep looking for potential acquisition targets around the globe that may complement its offering. At the same time, the company is planning to raise an institutional round of investment this summer.
