Intel Capital Invests In Two 3D Printing Marketplaces

Design and desktop look needs a makeover…but it works


Intel Capital , the chipmaker’s venture arm, has made two investments in 3D marketplaces, one in Austin and one in Lithuania. The companies, makexyz and CGTrader , allow users to upload 3D objects and sell services and downloads.

Makexyz is a 3D printing marketplace where modelers can upload their prints and then request they be printed locally on consumer-grade 3D printers. CGTrader is an digital model marketplace where you can buy 3D models for computer animation and the like. The are also slowly moving into the 3D printing space.

The terms of the investment are undisclosed.

“Our goal is to help people make stuff,” said makexyz founder Nathan Tone. “And intel’s investment strengthens our opportunity to help people make stuff at a significant scale. With a quickly growing, global network of 3D printers, a lot becomes possible.”
