Our story

Aniwaa’s story is the tale of two childhood friends from Toulouse (France), Martin and Pierre-Antoine, and their love for technology. Bitten by the 3D printing bug in 2013, they decided to launch a blog dedicated to the topic, a passion project that quickly grew into something much bigger.

At the time, information about additive manufacturing was scattered across the internet and there were no user-friendly tools to easily compare 3D printers or 3D scanners. The site rapidly gained traction, so much so, that only a year after its launch in 2014, both Martin and Pierre-Antoine decided to leave their jobs and work full-time on Aniwaa.

In 2015, a new version of the site was released, which included revamped comparison engines and updated product databases. The audience continued to grow and over the years, Aniwaa strengthened its position as the authoritative source on additive manufacturing and 3D capture hardware.

Today, Aniwaa has evolved into the most comprehensive resource for buyers looking to acquire an AM or 3D capture system.
