A Leading CAD File Creation Company Through Services and Education
HoneyPoint3D, leaders in 3D Printing Education and Rapid Prototyping Services, was founded in 2013 with the opening of Northern California’s first retail 3D printing store. Fast forwarding to 2017, HoneyPoint3D closed the retail store to focus on their rapid prototyping services (3D CAD, 3D Scanning) that services clients throughout the USA. With our expert CAD Modelers and professional Artec scanners, we have successfully completed over 1,000 projects bringing our clients ideas to life.
Our award winning educational division has taught over 7000 students how to 3D print and create 3D CAD files. HoneyPoint3D’s educational online courses are distributed in over 20 countries and have won numerous awards. HoneyPoint3D launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in July 2015 that launched our award winning flagship course on Autodesk Meshmixer.
