Online manufacturing platform 3D Hubs announced it has rebranded to Hubs. The new name reflects the range of manufacturing services the company offers and aims to strengthen its position as a leader in global outsourcing for custom part manufacturing.
Founded in 2013, the company originally established itself by connecting the world’s largest network of 3D printing services. Starting in 2018, at the request of its customers, the company expanded its manufacturing services to include CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication and injection molding.
The name Hubs aims to reposition the company as one offering a range of manufacturing services. Existing users will not be affected by the change. The only difference is web links to www.3dhubs.com will now lead to www.hubs.com. In the future, Hubs aims to expand its global network of manufacturing partners, complementing its service offering to that of Protolabs’ in-house facilities.
