Our team had yet another great tombstones or deal gift project. Vector, the micro satellite launch company that’s decreasing barriers to entry and increasing speed to orbit, received $21M funding led by Sequoia Capital, with participation from Shasta Ventures and Lightspeed. This round brings Vector’s total funding to $31M and follows a landmark first half of 2017 for the company.
Successful test flight
This investment comes right after Vector’s successful flight test of the full-scale prototype Vector-R launch vehicle in May, making Vector one of the first to accomplish a successful launch in the new commercial space launch industry.
One of a kind tombstones
To celebrate the funding of this innovative company, these 3D printed tombstones were made. A combination of plexi and 3D print ensures a special result. Hopefully the company can skyrocket to even greater results in the future! Good luck!
The first part of this event took place from 6 to 9 July. The next event which is called “The Summer Circuit” takes place from 12 to 23 July.
The making of.
The 3D trophy factory team is now in it’s 3rd year as exclusive award partner for Knokke Hippique. The award itself is inspired by a classic sea-side and beach theme, in true style of our Belgian Coast. The 2 main colors blue and white are in line with the event’s house style, resulting in a simple yet elegant design.
Also this year, we’ve created multiple designs for the entire course of the event. For the Knokke Hippique Jumping previous weekend, we’ve made the awards with a 3D printed lighthouse on top. The foot is oak and hand finished with white paint in our design studio.
For the Summer’s Circuit we have a variety of different sizes, with a 3D printed beach chair as the centre piece. The foot is also in oak and hand painted by our talented team.
To accommodate all those international top-class horses and riders, there is an area of over 30 hectares with two huge competition fields in Knokke , where competitions will take place during the day and in the evening. Next to the event there will also be lifestyle shows, live performances and restaurants present.
Knokke Hippique is a summer’s highlight for the equestrian world but also for our team; the awards remain to be one of our personal favorite designs.
Chances are you’ve probably already heard about one of our most famous items: STAN the standing desk. If you didn’t, we’d love to introduce you to the celebrity of our new online shop!
What or who is STAN?
STAN is the first fully customizable standing desk. Meaning you design and create to your own individual body dimensions. Every user also has the freedom to choose their own colour, logo engraving, and much more.
STAN is made in three separate parts, which easily assemble into a raised work surface. It’s an ideal solution for people that work remotely or in office environments that emphasize dynamic interaction like an Agile standing meeting. STAN is also lasercut and made only on-demand, so except for your health you’re also rewarding our planet, that’s a win-win situation right there!
But why a standing desk?
Firstly, because standing desks are cool – and the benefits of standing over sitting are proven: standing desk users burn up to 350 additional calories a day than their colleagues who remain sitting. STAN is lasercut to the exact specifications to suit the consumer’s height. It can also be branded, colored, and adapted to the tastes of the consumer or to suit an office’s design.
How do I buy one?
Simple! Just go to our online shop. On this moment, STAN is available in 2 different versions; The classic STAN standing desk and a smaller STAN Laptop Support. There will be new variaties available soon, so make sure you keep a close eye on our website to see what’s coming next! Stand with us!

In a world where grey, blue and black suits are dominant, standing out from the crowd isn’t always that easy. Agreed, men can switch it up by wearing a “special” tie. Or maybe a pocket square can set yourself apart from others. Unfortunately these two suggestions have a high chance of making you look very silly. Some can pull it off, but many have failed.
A far more subtle way to spice up your suit game is the Cufflink. An underrated suit accessory that’s is finally finding it’s way out of the dusty men’s apparel shop and into mainstream fashion.
Our cufflinks are unique because they are made with 3D printing technology. All of them can be customized with your initials or text and anyone can choose between different shapes and sizes.
You can choose between Natural Gloss Silver or Goldplated Brass. These are also available in different sizes and like hexagons, rectangular cufflinks and even star shapes!
Our Cufflinks are also perfect for a truly personalized gift. So what are you waiting for?
Wearing a suit doesn’t mean you have to blend in with the crowd. Be the star of every party with our personalized cufflinks.
