We Bring the Joy Back to Industrial 3D With instant3Dhub we create totally new possibilities for our customers to exploit the real value of their 3D data for various application scenarios.

Threedy GmbH

Our Story

Building on 25 years of research at Fraunhofer IGD, Threedy’s visual computing pioneers are leading the development of our platform technology instant3Dhub in Darmstadt, Germany.

We understand the complexity and the challenges arising, when bringing industrial 3D data to modern software infrastructures and mixed reality environments. We know there is no one size fits all solution.

Our goal is to ease the utilization of industrial 3D data for everyone. Our customers are relying on our technology to gain the most value out of their 3D data.

For this reason we build a highly flexible visual computing service platform, powered by state of the art algorithms and best in class research, capable to adapt to the various application scenarios. instant3Dhub facilitates the flexibility to easily access and interact with industrial 3D data on any device instantly and build applications fulfilling different needs. There is no easier way to go from proof of concept to production with a consistent technological basis.


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.  


We create totally new possibilities for our customers to exploit 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 Team

Threedy 's team was formed in the course of almost ten years while bringing instant3Dhub to live 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.     

Our Partners

We believe partnerships to be most critical to succeed in our highly connected world.
We are proud to work with experts from various fields to build the technology of the future.
