Voodoo Manufacturing, a Brooklyn, NY-based software-optimized 3D printing manufacturing company, raised $1.4m in funding.
Backers included KPCB Edge and David Karp, founder and CEO of Tumblr.
The company intends to use the funds to further accelerate growth.
Co-founded by Max Friefeld, Jonathan Schwartz, Oliver Ortlieb and Patrick Deem, Voodoo Manufacturing offers 3D printing services that allow designers, entrepreneurs, professionals and engineers to launch a physical product. From prototypes and functional parts to marketing materials, the company’s service enables the creation of real 3D printed products for a wide range of applications specializing in small-batch production of plastic parts, ranging from 1 to 10,000 unit runs for less than injection molding costs.
In conjunction with the funding, Voodoo announced factory and office expansion, growing their team to 18 members and adding 50 new 3D printers to their printer cluster, bringing the current total number of machines to 160.
In 2016, the company worked with VH1, Microsoft, Lowe’s, the Enable Community Foundation, NBC Universal, Autodesk and others, across over 500 projects.
At the start of 2017, Voodoo Manufacturing joined Y Combinator’s Winter 2017 batch.
