Hybrid 3D Print & Custom Design Service for Small Business and Self-Employed
SYNCFAB is a service to community source custom designs with the option to showcase them, 3D print or specialty manufacture them for direct delivery. Utilizing a custom design management tool, CADSYNC, users connect with a growing network of local designers, engineers and specialty fabricators for convenient concept rendering and fabrication. SYNCFAB is an abbreviation for Synchronized Fabrication referring to the hybridization of 3D printing (additive) with traditional (subtractive) manufacturing methods. SYNCFAB is also a reference to the evolution of the design and production processes using today's technology to match streamlined custom design solutions with specialty fabrication methods producing the highest quality product locally.
“California is the design innovation center of the global economy; the USA is at the epicenter of 3D Print and Hybrid Specialty Fabrication and SyncFab is the platform bringing them together for your custom creations.” explains Jeremy Goodwin. "I am very excited about working with SyncFab's growing community of talented designers applying cutting edge and revolutionary web technology applications, such as WebGL, to 3D printing technology and design processes," comments Jay Ligda. “SyncFab will allow people to better utilize our local sources of design talent, materials, hybrid specialty fabrication processes and the ability of our manufacturers to produce top quality products locally,” explains Nick Agid.

Hybrid 3D Printing Power to the People
Whether you are a student, a garage inventor, a self-employed designer, or a small business, SyncFab will allow users of all skill and interest levels to graduate from mass consumer to custom creator. SyncFab differs from the typical B-to-B or B-to-C model such that we are crafting our strategy around what we call a C-to-C or Community to Creator model. “Bringing awareness to our local community of specialty fabricators and designers which is usually hard to tap into for any artist or professional is very exciting,” comments Dennis Delgado. “Product Design involves functionality, aesthetics and even emotional appeal so that great design is what separates the very best products,” explains Chris Cheng. “I am extremely excited about SyncFab’s community-based platform allowing talented designers to come together and share their very best ideas and turn them into reality.”
“Our goal is to leverage 3D Print technology to restore the value chain interruption between product innovation and production to emphasize local ecosystems of sustainable production benefitting recent graduates, small businesses and the self-employed” Jeremy added. “We plan to launch our pilot service platform this summer. Please Support our Vision and Share the Dream with a pledge on Kickstarter or registering on our interest page.”
