The creation of TH3D
Tim launched TH3D in September 2017 in terms of an actual brand name. The first product that came to market was our EZABL kit in March 2017 and was initially sold under Tim’s old IT website.
The popularity of the product and our support made it that we needed to make the 3D printing products under their own brand name; thus TH3D was born.
Our Dedicated, US Based Team
TH3D is based out of Hobart, IN. All of our team members are in the US, we do not outsource any of our positions to people outside the US. We only operate online and do not offer local pickup for orders.
We run a hybrid of onsite and remote employees to maximize efficiency and coverage of our customers that are all over the world. We have a dedicated team of people who only handle customer service and technical support requests.
Focus on Quality and Service
Our focus is to get our customers the best products at fair prices. We’re all makers here, and we know how frustrating getting cheap parts from China is and not getting what you wanted the first time.
Everything we carry are parts and products that we use on our in-house machines to make our lives easier. There is enough to worry about in this hobby/industry so let us help simplify your 3D printing life by ensuring you get quality parts and excellent support.
When we design products, we take the time to run them through stress testing and analysis to make sure they work and last. Unlike many vendors in the 3D printing market, we do not use our customers to test our products, we sell products that work and are free of major design flaws.
We believe in giving back to the community because we would not be here without it. We put out and maintain our Firmware branch that helps users get more out of their machines at no cost to them while making the printers much safer.
We make honest review videos on our YouTube channel (most are machines we bought ourselves) so that you know if a machine is worth checking out or not and tutorials for the machines.
Financially we give to the Marlin Project and the OctoPrint Project monthly. In addition to that, we provide the Marlin developers with products when they need them for testing and/or their printers.
I’ve been a tinkerer and maker since a young age. I’ve always been into computers and electronics. I started 3D printing in late 2016 as a hobby and it quickly became one of my main hobbies. Running a business while also being someone who has ADHD has been a challenge at times, but I love what I do and its very rewarding most of the time.
Professionally, I have over a decade of Information Technology experience from IT Support, Project Management, and Systems Administration. I am also an Eagle Scout (obtained in 2007).
Hobbies Include: 3D Printing, Computers, PC Gaming, Cars, Drones, Volunteering, and Home Automation
Hobbies Include: Graphics Design, Being a Crazy Cat Lady, Dog Mom, Baking

Shaun has done a bit of everything. He has a mechanical background working on cars, small machines, and tinkering which led him to 3D printing in approximately 2018. His attention to detail and fine craftsmanship when 3D printing caused Tim to headhunt him for a position here at TH3D, where he runs the Printer Farm. Previously Shaun has worked in manufacturing, assembly, and founded and owned a successful towing company.
Hobbies: 3D Printing, AWCY?, and flying drones.
Support Team Lead
Peter is a wizard from Atlanta, GA. His glorious-but-graying hair results from years of retail, technical support, and customer service experience. His beard alludes to some familiarity with Linux operating systems, and the burn marks on his hands seem to suggest he doesn’t understand the directions “HOT – Do Not Touch” as it applies to 3D printing.
Hi! I’m Tor and have been with TH3D since late 2017. Started printing in early 2017 starting with a FLSUN Kossle delta, but have been following 3d printing and have been in the community groups since around 2015.
Most of my free time is spent flying drones, upgrading printers, gaming or playing with just about anything I can tinker with as well as constantly printing upgrades for everything I can think of.
Mac is one of our remote support agents that works from the Central Virginia area. He has been running a 3D printer since he got bitten by the printing bug when he assembled an AnyCubic Prusa i3 back in March of 2017.
Shortly after that, he started with TH3D in a part-time position helping with customer issues until he was hired full-time in Nov 2018. Before that, he held jobs ranging from armed security officer to managing a 141 room hotel. His hobbies include building and modifying 3d printers (of course), PC gaming with friends (no FPS).
