The vision behind is to offer a user-friendly experience akin to a “digital equivalent of LEGO,” empowering users of all ages to express their creativity. With $10 million in seed funding1 led by Andreessen Horowitz’s a16z Crypto division, aims to reshape the 3D design space.

While working at Google’s AR/VR division, Jason contributed to projects like AR/VR app builder Poly and 3D modeling tool Blocks. The experience contributed to his inspiration for  We spoke with Jason about the choice to build on .xyz. As he explained, “The decision was based on a combination of factors. One, it resonated with us because of its simplicity, just like the alphabet with ABC and XYZ. Secondly, the .xyz extension perfectly aligns with our product, which operates in the 3D space, where each element has x, y, and z coordinates. And, opting for .xyz provided us with a wider range of options and a clearer namespace.”

In an update on April 4, 2024, introduced a Trending feed and over a dozen new categories, such as “Games,” “Art,” and “Fantasy,” to highlight popular creators and diverse creative expressions.

Specialized 3D printing company expands their repertoire with iron works

Form.xyzHover customer – (United States)

First featured in our #WebsiteWednesday blog series in August 2019, was founded by classically trained sculptor Rob Arps and has since established itself as a specialized 3D printing company offering an extensive range of services. These services include 3D scanning, 3D sculpting, CNC milling for larger projects, and 3D printing. distinguishes itself through the artistic expertise of its team, which combines traditional sculpting techniques with modern technology to create ultra-realistic masterpieces. After commissioning a project, employs dimensional forms, or scaled versions, to shape and design the print by hand before scanning and designing it on the computer for 3D printing. This meticulous process ensures that each creation, whether a life-size statue or an intricately designed bust, is a true work of art.

In April 2023, attended the National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art and Practices (NCCCIAP) at the Historic Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama. This event marked’s first foray into iron casting, expanding their repertoire beyond their usual bronze works. Max Rawlings, an associate at, shared their skills in pattern making and 3D printing with the iron community. At the conference, they successfully cast their first iron piece—a replica of an antique Tractor Toolbox Lid for a client—using a detailed process involving 3D scanning, wax infusion, ceramic shell molding, and high-temperature firing. This experience not only broadened their technical skills but also connected them with artists and professionals worldwide, highlighting the future potential of cast iron as an artistic medium. is excited to integrate these techniques into their offerings, continuing to push the boundaries of art and technology in 3D printing.
