Origin, a silicon valley additive manufacturing startup, has emerged from years in stealth mode with $10 million in series A funding and a materials development partnership with chemical giant BASF.

A modular hardware system, with open materials compatibility and extensible software, Origin’s Open Additive Production platform is designed for flexibility and 3D printing in high volumes.

Jason - Krikorian - General - Partner - Series

Jason Krikorian, General Partner at Series A funding lead DCM, comments, “Origin is poised to bring additive manufacturing beyond the current confines of prototyping to make a significant impact on the $600B plastics market,”

“WE ARE STRONG BELIEVERS THAT AN OPEN APPROACH TO MATERIALS WILL BE KEY TO UNLOCKING THE MASS MANUFACTURING POTENTIAL OF ADDITIVE, AND IT’S GREAT TO SEE BASF AS THE FIRST EXAMPLE OF AN INDUSTRY LEADER TO FORMALLY EMBRACE THE PLATFORM.”

Origin - CEO - Chris - Prucha - CTO

Origin was founded in 2015 by CEO Chris Prucha and CTO Joel Ong. Then providing an open source 3D printing service, the company is known for producing the custom NFC chips used to identify authentic Marshawn Lynch Beast Mode sneakers. To make these devices Origin develop a specialized using Autodesk Ember 3D printers, a process chronicled by Autodesk in on YouTube.

The NFC chips served as a catalyst for Origin’s founders who then started to develop a platform from the ground up to tackle 3D printing for mass production.
