Hello and welcome to Kiwi3D.co.nz! We are a small business located in beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand. Our mission is to provide an affordable, high quality, fast, complete 3D printing solution with excellent after sales support.
Let me tell you a little about us and our background. My name is Josh, founder of Kiwi3D. I have always loved tinkering from an early age. It started with Lego and Meccano, which lead into electronics and computers. Now, working full time as an carpenter. I love starting with that idea in your mind and being able to put it onto paper and eventually into a 3D object that is useful and practical. That was my main draw to 3D printing. No more trying to make an electric circuit enclosure out of old plastic containers.
Two years ago we bought our first 3D printer, a XYZ Da Vinci 1.0. Oh man, was that a steep learning curve! We could only print in ABS which is one of the most difficult materials to print with. About 1 year later we traded up to the Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus. This opened up a lot more opportunities, with capability to print in almost every material now; PLA, ABS, Wood fill, Metal fill, Nylon, PETG and flexible filaments. This has allowed us to print stronger, more practical parts – like our top selling drone accessories (link to page) We produce protective gimbal covers, steadicam handles, leg extenders and tablet holders.
The latest addition to the team is a creativity CR-10. Opening up the possibilities even more with a huge 300x300x400 build volume. We are just getting started so stay tuned! Head over and give our Facebook and Instagram a like to keep up to date on our new filament test prints and giveaways.
