We Bring the Joy Back to Industrial 3D

With instant3Dhub we create totally new possibilities for our customers to utilise the real value of their 3D data for various application scenarios.

Our Mission

We create totally new possibilities for our customers to utilise the real value of their 3D data. By connecting 3D data sources and applications in a fully automated way, we make it accessible to everyone and anywhere. Our end-to-end solution enables complex and scalable visual computing tasks for almost any application scenario, platform and device.

Our Vision

In modern IT and software landscapes, industrial 3D data and applications are often considered foreign bodies requiring special treatment. This results from the enormous interdependency and complexity of data size, algorithms and device capabilities.  Our goal is to simplify the usage of industrial 3D data, to leverage its true value and make it accessible to everyone and everywhere.  

Our Team

Threedy 's team was formed in the course of almost ten years while bringing instant3Dhub to life at Fraunhofer IGD in Darmstadt. The long path to transfrom research results into a product has forged our strong team in a special way. We are constantly challenging ourselves over and over to achieve the best possible result. Threedy's management relies on a growing team of more than a dozen engineers with expert knowledge in various areas.
