3D Printing In South Africa

By on July 31st, 2011 in Service


There’s a great story in Design Magazine describing how Kenneth van Rensburg came to create a 3D printing business in South Africa. After seeing the technology by accident during a Jaguar factory tour in the UK, van Rensburg created Protoform in 2008 to “bridge the gap between design and manufacture”, initially focusing on boat design. Later, Protoform would reach out to other markets and now produces 3D models for a variety of industries, including medical models and artistic works.  
It’s this kind of innovation that will build the industry of the 21st century.
