Based in San Francisco, CA, Origin is an open platform for additive mass production. The company has worked with a network of material partners for over a year to develop a wide range of commercial grade materials for its system, resulting in some of the highest performance and most resilient materials in additive manufacturing, at prices and print speeds that enable high volume production. Origin’s open approach is designed to address the demand for better materials and the customization required by manufacturing partners looking to push 3D printing as a technology for mass production. The company was founded in 2015 and is led by alumni from Google and Apple. Investors include Floodgate, DCM, Mandra Capital, Haystack, Stanford University, and Joe Montana.
