Pirate3D

Founded in late 2012, Pirate3D is a 3D printing startup seed-funded by Red Dot Ventures and incubated by the Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES). The Buccaneer, their first 3D printer, uses fused filament fabrication (FFF) technique for printing PLA.

The company launched a crowdfunding campaign for the Buccaneer on Kickstarter in late May 2013. Pirate3D’s campaign closed on June 29 amassing US$1.4 million in pledges from 3,520 backers. This makes the Buccaneer one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns of 2013, and the most successful fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printer on the site.

Pirate3D is currently entering the manufacturing stage and actively expanding to worldwide markets.
