About Us

At NVBots we believe that students should bring their ideas to life. The contemporary 3D printing process is far too cumbersome for most students and teachers. This prohibits widespread adoption of a technology that offers a hands-on, interdisciplinary approach to STEM education.

 Our solution is an easy-to-use and easy-to-share 3D printing experience. To challenge the status quo, we have created the NVPrinter: the world’s first fully-automated 3D printer. The NVPrinter is run from from the cloud, enabling users to safely 3D print 24-7 from any device.
