Launched via a 35-day crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, Matterform blasted through its initial fundraising goal of $81K in 1 week and has raised over $460K. With 4 days left to go, the company announced that it has outgrown its production facility and decided to add color scanning to what is the world’s 1st affordable home 3D scanner product (currently $599).
Matterform (www.matterform.net) was co-founded by Adam Brandejs and Drew Cox.
Adam Brandejs: Programmer, sculptor, Eagle PCB junky, hacker, and maker... I’ve been making things all my life from robots and code to sculptural art that tours art galleries all over the world. I was dry walling at 7, picked up my first soldering iron at 10, was programming commodore 64’s at 12, picked up 3ds max r2.5 in highschool (yeah, I’m old), fixed everyones computer during university, and then spent a few years in advertising making websites for Audi, Coca Cola, Budweiser, and countless other big name companies you’ve probably never heard of. It was kinda boring though and I’d rather be my own boss.
Drew Cox: I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 18, and making things since I could move my hands. The many jobs I have had over the years are what make me who I am. Professionally I have been a programmer, artist, art director, and graphic designer. Unprofessionally I am an inventor, hacker, and mad scientist.
My career path has lead me to help build huge brands like Labatt, Budweiser, Audi, Honda, Coca Cola. My hobbies and passion has brought me to respect the names of Prusa, Sherline, Arduino, and every person who has ever contributed to open source projects.
