1.2 million for 3D Spark in seed round
In November 2022, Hamburg-based startup 3D Spark announced initial funding in the high six-figure range. Now it was able to close the seed round and collect a total of 1.2 million euros. It is again led by the Fraunhofer Technology Transfer Fund, and Discovery CFO UG also invested. Innovationsstarter Fonds Hamburg was already involved in the first round.
3D Spark saves time and money through process automation
3D Spark is a specialist in the automation of processes relating to the procurement and production of components. To do this, the startup uses artificial intelligence programmed to find the cheapest, fastest and most sustainable solution. The software takes care of much of the bidding process and supports decision-making with the help of an integrated manufacturability check and cost calculation. As the company name implies, industrial 3D printing is always a viable option here.
Founded in 2021, the startup, which has received multiple awards and support, has already won over numerous well-known customers from the mobility and manufacturing industries. These include Deutsche Bahn, the rail technology company Alstom and the technology group ZF Friedrichshafen. Hamburg's popular tourist attraction Miniatur Wunderland has also already worked with 3D Spark.
