It has been a long time in the coming. After years of development and genius, 3D printing is no longer a manufacturing method for the few. The general public have been gradually awakening to its vast possibilities. Once seen as something improbable, its possibilities are being discovered and we are in awe.

As the general public takes more and more interest to the unending potential of this method, they too are wanting to become part of the 3D printing revolution. In the UK for some time 3D Hubs has dominated the market but recently Freelabster.com – an innovative, customer friendly and responsive company – has also been launched in the UK. With already a huge network (across France, Italy and Spain) it promises a quality service to its customers.

The company is currently “recruiting” its printing and modelling experts in the UK. The company is always looking for talented 3D printers and modellers who have the same mind-set as themselves. Perhaps it’s because Freelabster.com is picky that makes it popular. To be welcomed on board, all printers have to undergo a validation test so that Freelabster.com can be sure of its network. Only the best printing services are validated which ensures that Freelabster’s customers are kept satisfied and confident of the possibilities 3D printing can offer them.

Freelabster.com is a French company and its head office is based on the Côte d’Azur which has the largest IT center in Europe. Its founder, Benjamin Pestel is an enthusiastic and talented entrepreneur. Born in the South of France, his entrepreneurial flair began during his school years. As early as the age of 14, Benjamin was making money with his own internet company. Fired by this early experience, Benjamin attended the prestigious business school, Skema, situated close to Nice. He graduated in 2013. Since then he worked in AsiaOctans for two years before starting up 2 of his own companies.

He is the principal founder of Freelabster, which started its journey in his own living room before, growing and moving to its present headquarters in Nice. Young, determined and results- driven in all his projects, he is an enthusiast of 3D printing and the impact that it will have on the future of the manufacturing world. Benjamin sees the importance of what Freelabster.com can offer to the general public. He said recently:

“Collaborative communities such as Uber; are now part of a trend sweeping across the globe. The collaborative 3D printing world will not only help progress this method and the ways it can be used in the manufacturing and medical world but it will also help grow and encourage a more eco-friendly society whereby items can be replaced, repaired and not so easily thrown away”.

Awarded this year start-up of the year, Benjamin is quietly confident of his company’s future. His team is young and enthusiastic and all are great believers of the power of 3D printing. They have had an amazing growth over the past year and have made partnerships in both the private and public sector with companies such as Boulanger, EDF and various Universities and schools. Able to carry out large scale projects (which are often complex) to tight deadlines, as well as small individual projects at highly competitive prices, Freelabster.com provides a service which is unlike those of its competitors. The company is ever growing and always searching on how to innovate.

Benjamin Pestel is shrewd and imaginative and is looking to towards a bright future. With his eyes firmly set on the possibilities of the future it is clear that Freelabster.com is set to be a real player in the world of this ever developing technology.
