About Us

Hi, we’re Twikit. We are an Antwerp based start-up that is rapidly carving its place in the 3D world. What we do is fairly straightforward: we have built our own 3D customization engine, and are quickly developing a range of easy-to-use apps for that engine. That way, everyday people and brands can create unique 3D objects, without actually having to master the complex skills or software that is usually needed. We then link up with our great production partners to create those objects in real life.

We’re a highly creative (but also fairly hard-working) bunch of people with a common belief that 3D printing has a great future. We try to be that future. And we want you to join us with your talents.
