Berlin based 3D printing company Trinckle has announced it has received € 700,000 in a recent investment financing round.
Trinckle, which was launched in 2013, is a 3D printing marketplace and service that made a name for itself earlier this year by releasing its flagship product the 3D Product Customizer, a user-friendly software interface that allows for easy 3D design modifications, accessible to those without extensive CAD knowledge.
The company also collaborated with Dutch 3D printing optics company Luxexcel earlier this year to introduce a customizable 3D lens creator that made use of their product customization software.
Trinckle co-founder and managing director Florian Reichle explains, “Our flagship product, known as the 3D Product Customizer, makes good on one of the biggest promises of 3D printing: personalised products for everyone. Thanks to the customizer, customers can individually configure or design static products without any special expertise. With our 3D printing technology, customers can also manufacture individualised products cost-efficiently.”
The recent € 700,000 in investment capital will allow Trinckle to further market its Product Customizer as well as expand its “Software as a Service” (SaaS) enterprise, which “[provides] support for modern 3D printing companies…from the creation of individualised 3D models to manufacturing.”
During the recent investment round, Trinckle gained some new investors, including small and medium size business investor KfW Bankengruppe, young investment and consulting company redpartners gmbh, and an unnamed business angel. BFB Frühphasenfonds Brandenburg GmbH, already a Trinckle shareholder, also contributed to the investment round, and continues to hold a 15% stake in the company.
“Trinkle’s services are already marketable and thus give customers access to the market in a quick and easy manner,” says Dr Jan Alberti from bmp Beteiligungsmanagement AG, one of the most experienced venture capital investors in Germany. “As the manager of BFB Frühphasenfonds, bmp already identified trinckle’s potential last year. We are all the more pleased that the company has developed outstandingly in the last 18 months and that it has acquired other renowned investors. We are convinced that trinckle will gain a substantial share of the 3D printing market.”
Trinckle has had a successful year thus far, as it was also named as one of five winners in the formnext Start-up Challenge this past September along with four other innovative companies from the 3D printing industry including 3dTrust, DyeMansion, Luuv Forward, and Sinterit.
Judging by the start-up’s recent investment round, which went very well, German company trinckle is certainly worth keeping an eye on - we hope to hear of more 3D printing innovations from them soon!
