The company byFlow was founded in 2014 by Floris Hoff, industrial product designer with over 4 years experience in 3D printing. In FabLab Maastricht he worked as a volunteer in maintaining and improving the 11 3D printers. Floris graduated with a project on the development of a unique granulate extruder which makes it possible to print with granulate, powder and paste. This makes it possible to print 10x faster and cheaper and to use recycled plastic.
To produce a compact, mobile, multi-faceted, multi-functional 3D printer with easily exchangeable extruders that can print a plethora of materials that is easy to use and readily accessible to everyone. The team pays a lot of attention to the design, quality and user-friendliness of his printer. Like a laptop, the printer is foldable, so that you can transport and store the printer easily, safely and without any fear of dust contamination.
The team also still conducts research on new material possibilities with colleagues at FabLab Maastricht, Chemelot Campus in Geleen (NL), Maastricht University, polytechnic Zuyd and LIOF. In the meantime, a lot of time and attention is spent on developing different extruders capable of printing different materials such as ceramics, biorubber, bronze/silverclay, plastic, wood, glassclay and food, specifically chocolate.
