CreativeTools is a leading supplier of all things 3D in northern Europe.
It´s probably hard to find a more complete supplier with such a wide range of products and knowledge in both software and hardware.
CreativeTools has been a dedicated supporter since i started 3D-printing and working with them is always a pleasure.
ZYYX 3D Printer is the brand of MagicFirm Europe.
Mats Moosberg from Magicfirm Europe approached me and asked if i was willing to test out their new 3D Printer, the ZYYX.
I accepted the offer and since then the ZYYX has proven to be a reliable workhorse and has now found a permanent place in my family of 3D printers.

I got in contact with Thomas Martzall, the guy behind taulman3D once having used their first Nylon filament, the Nylon 618. It was about that time i started exploring the possibilities of producing R/C products with 3Dprinters which of course would be a perfect showcase for high strength materials such as the ones taulman3D produces. Since that day i´ve been lucky enough to receive great support and a steady supply of 3D printing material from taulman3D.
In 2013 Proto-Plant set out to create some new high performance 3D Printing materials. They launched a Kickstarter campaign for the project which they named “Proto-Pasta”. The project aimed at bringing 3 new materials to the market: Polycarbonate-ABS, Carbon Fiber Reinforced PLA, and High Temperature PLA filament. The campaign was a success and since then Proto-Plant continue to innovate and build on the existing product line.

Martin Bondéus is the man behind the renowned dual drive extruder that has become somewhat of a industry standard when it comes to high performance and reliability. If you are suffering from quality issues related to extrusion or if you just take your 3D printer to the next level, a Bondtech extruder is the way to go!
I have only met Martin once but we have exchanged emails over the years and i have done some beta testing aswell. For 2017 Bondtech is a new sponsor, adding the performance and quality of their awesome extruders to my BCN3D Sigma.
I started following Brook Drumm and Printrbot when he launched the Kickstarter back in 2011. Although we had never been in contact, Brook has always been a fan of The OpenRC Project. In 2016 we started exchanging a few emails and by the fall of 2016 Printrbot decided to sponsor me by sending one of their Printrbot Simple Pro.
I finally got to meet Brook at MRRF 2017 which was a great experience. It´s not often you meet a person how is so down to earth and super nice. It was a great pleasure to spend a few hours talking to Brook and i hope it was not the last time!
In the past few years colorFabb has established itself as the innovative, cutting-edge developer of high quality ﬁlaments for FDM 3D printing. After an initial pilot year in 2013 and rapid expansion in 2014, colorFabb has invested in 6 production lines to accommodate and sustain a wide range of 3D printing materials, suited for most FDM 3D printers.
Except heading up Hawk3DProto Ben Hawksworth is a huge supporter of the 3DPrinting community. I think it´s hard to find someone more engaged in the community than Ben. If there´s a livestream on YouTube involving 3DPrinting Ben is probably watching. Always with a positive attitude.
Ben is constantly collaborating with designers and creators of all kinds (including myself and The OpenRC Project) and if that wasn´t enough he also creates alot of content on Social media including his own company Vlog which you can check out here.
Ben and Hawk3DProto is a great supporter of me and my project and supplies me with all the right stuff for my projects!
