Volumetric 3D printing company Vitro3D raises $1.3M in seed funding


New to 3D printing Vitro3D raised $1.3 million in an oversubscribed seed funding round led by Buff Gold Ventures.

The volumetric 3D printing company has also received funding from several angel investors, including Rockies Venture Club, Caruso Ventures and The Deming Center Venture Fund.

Vitro3D was born from University of Colorado Boulder and is a corporate client of Innosphere Ventures through the Colorado Life Sciences Incubation Program. Its volumetric 3D printing method was designed to solve the “current limitations of the photopolymer 3D printing industry” by enabling the printing of larger, more complex items “in seconds” through its “new cartridge-based geometry”. The company said it was initially focused on new approaches to producing dental aligners and scaffolds for 3D cell culture and tissue engineering, with the company looking to play a big role in medical devices and tools. tissue engineering.

The company will leverage the funding to produce prototype printers that it says will be able to deliver “complex three-dimensional objects in seconds.”

“Our proprietary volumetric 3D printing technology leverages new algorithms, proprietary hardware, and materials science allowing us to disrupt industries such as dental aligner manufacturing,” commented Dr. Camila Uzcategui, co-founder and CEO of Vitro3D. “This funding will allow us to demonstrate the power of our breakthrough 3D printing technology, which has the potential to change the way complex structures, including complex personalized medical products, will be rapidly manufactured.”

“Vitro3D’s volumetric 3D printer will disrupt the way complex, custom products are made in the future,” added Mark Lupa, general partner of Buff Gold Ventures. “The speed and detail of the products they can produce have broad applicability across multiple industries and we are thrilled to be working with this great team.”
