We believe that design perfection is born with art meets science. That’s why we make it a point to infuse our proprietary design and modelling processes into all projects entrusted to 3D Matters – no matter how big or small.
One of the longest established Additive Manufacturers
in Southeast Asia
Our Vision & Mission
As the region’s leading end-to-end additive manufacturer that delivers cost-effective 3D prints of the highest quality, our aim is to help both companies and individuals become game changers of their respective industries through innovations in 3D printing.
Impactful printing is the culmination of accurate design capture and creative design work.
3D Matters was started by Mark Lim and Hayden Tay in 2012 and is now in its next wave of growth – developing as an end-to-end, integrated 3D Printing Service Bureau to support our clients through all stages of their 3D printing journey from diagnostic and consulting, to design capture and material selection, right through to printing and finishing.
Our team is one of the strongest in the sector with the senior management team of CEO Matthew Waterhouse, Technical Director Mark Lim and Design Director Hayden Tay, and function heads in sales, marketing and engineering.
With an uncompromising commitment to establishing high quality standards for both customers and within our organization, 3D Matters is the first specialized 3D printing company in Singapore to have attained the ISO9001:2015 certification.
