Dutch 3D-print startup 3D Hubs has secured its biggest financing round yet with an investment of US$7 million. The shiny new pan-European venture capital fund EQT Ventures, which recently launched a €566 million fund, is the biggest participant and lead investor in this Series B financing round, which also involves previous investor Balderton Capital.
3D Hubs, a community for 3d printing, also announced the amount of printers connected to their network has increased to a whopping 33.000, several media reported. 3D Hubs connects owners of 3D-printers with people who do not have a 3D-printer but would like to use one. Altogether the company now has printers connected to their network in over 160 countries. All up these printers produce more than 40.000 3D-prints per month.
