Company Overview

Hubs empowers engineers to create revolutionary products by making custom manufacturing more accessible. We leverage automation to allow fast and affordable access to manufacturing capabilities from all over the world.

A broad range of capabilities
Hubs started life as the world’s largest peer-to-peer network of 3D printing services, but as we grew with our customers we needed to offer a broader range of capabilities to help their businesses succeed. Today there are hundreds of manufacturers in our global network, and customers can order parts in a broad range of materials using multiple manufacturing technologies, and with many secondary processes as well. Our customers come back again and again because we’ll always find a way to make what they need.

A Protolabs Company

In January 2021 Hubs was proudly acquired by Protolabs, the global leader in fast custom manufacturing.

We’re very excited because it’s an incredible opportunity to further our mission of making custom manufacturing accessible. By combining forces we’ve created the world’s most comprehensive digital manufacturing offer for custom parts, giving our combined customer base better access to increased design complexity, tighter tolerances, additional finishing options, more materials, and a broader range of lead-time options.

  • We're all students and teachers
  • Our processes allow us to move faster
  • We create the winning user experience
