What we do

Aniwaa is a trusted source of information about emerging technologies, specialized in 3D printing, 3D scanning, virtual and augmented reality. Our goal is to help tech enthusiasts and professionals find the right products by giving them the context and guidance they need to make informed purchases.

We achieve this by providing best-in-class comparison tools, in-depth articles and product reviews. Our metascore, based on ratings indexed from trusted sources, offers fair and unbiased evaluations of the hardware we cover.

Our story

Aniwaa’s story is the tale of two childhood friends from Toulouse, 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 side-project that quickly grew into something much bigger.

At the time, information about 3D printing was scattered across the internet and there were no user-friendly tools to easily compare 3D printers. 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 dedicate themselves full-time to 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 Aniwaa strengthened its position as an authoritative source on 3D printing and 3D scanning hardware. As a successful tech media startup, the company caught the attention of investors and closed its first fundraising round in 2018.

Today, Aniwaa covers not only 3D printing and scanning but also virtual and augmented reality hardware. This was a logical evolution for Aniwaa given the market trends and Pierre-Antoine’s background in immersive technologies but it also touched on something far more fundamental to the company. Since the very beginning, Aniwaa has been driven by a passion for cutting-edge tech. It brought Pierre-Antoine and Martin together as children and now paves the road ahead, one emerging technology at a time.
