The 3D printing industry continues to evolve with new age companies focusing heavily on the application of affordable 3D printing for prototyping and designing.The technology has also opened doors for many entrepreneurs to take 3D printing as deep and specialised field. Taking up the challenge of developing ultra-affordable top quality 3D printers particularly for the Indian customers, Kraveenthar Kamal founded Maker Global 3D in May 2016 with bunch of other 3D printing enthusiasts. “Being a product designer and 3D printing enthusiast, it was inevitable for me to get involved in 3D printing activities,” says Kraveenthar. The company provides premium quality 3D products and services at affordable prices to various sectors of designing, architecture, dentistry, orthopaedics and schools.
Quality Meets Affordability
Maker Global is one of the very few players in the sector to provide indigenous 3D printing products varying from 3D printers to 3D scanners, FDM filaments and SLA resins, all at pocket friendly price tags. While the easy-to-use beginner’s hobby level printer starts from Rs.19,000, the performance driven, best-in-class industrial 3D printers are available at relatively lower prices than the industry standards. The company even offers 3D scanners, Filaments, 3D objects, Spares and other 3D printing related products. Maker Global supplies suitable kinds of filaments made of ABS, PLA, Wood, Metal fills along with printers. Alongside, the company does the installation and maintenance for setting up 3D printing labs in schools & colleges including installation of 3D printing studios for architectural offices. Kraveenthar and his team have developed an exclusive syllabus called EDU 3D for educating the school and college kids about 3D printing and to shape their project ideas and inventions using 3D printing technology.

Maker Global even offers various 3D printing technology related services that includes rapid prototyping, 3D scanning, 3D designing and various such services. For instance, MEP Construction, which is into real estate development, was finding it tough to make customers realise the building designs. Maker Global enabled them to develop 3D model of their building plan instead of 2D design plans. The plan was executed for every floor taking very tiny details into account. This received a huge appreciation from the customers and they were delighted to see their future homes insuch anengaging manner. Within short time of its establishment, the company has managed to assist clients from top industries like Google, Amazon, Dell, Tata Aerospace, Mega Infrastructures, Vistara Constructions, Worley Parsons, DQ Entertainment, Apollo and several other companies from various sectors. Maker Global is on its way to launch its in-house made 3D printer which is expected to be the most affordable in India.
Since inception, Maker Global 3D has recorded 200 percent month-on-month growth and is currently looking for compatible investments to develop R&D facility. This Hyderabad-based company employs eight full time employees and has presence in Trichy as well. Maker Global has received many appreciations and awards from several clients and even investment interest from some. The company is expanding by splitting into three major branches of engineering, medical and construction, and is also branching out to Bangalore and Chennai in the coming years.
