Voxel8, a Cambridge, MA-based multi-material digital manufacturing platform, raised a Series B funding round of undisclosed amount.
The round was led by DSM Venturing, the venture investment arm of DSM, with participation from HP Tech Ventures and existing investors Braemar Energy Ventures and ARCH Venture Partners.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate adoption of its technology for high-volume production of athletic footwear and apparel.
Co-founded in 2014 by Harvard University professor Dr. Jennifer Lewis, and Travis Busbee, CEO, Voxel8 has created multi-material digital manufacturing technologies for the design and production of footwear, apparel, and smart textiles.
The company’s recently introduced ActiveLab® Digital Fabrication System is a multi-material digital manufacturing system that enables product development, wear testing and production runs of high-performance athletic footwear uppers and other textiles. This technology gives users the power to digitally design and fabricate shoe uppers. In addition, customers can design shoes and other textile products incorporating complex designs and structural features, with little manufacturing costs.
