Our mission is to serve real human needs with practical 3D printing.

Our first project is to provide 12,000 hearing aids, over 5 years, to Syrian refugees and low-income clients in Jordan. We are excited to use new mobile 3D ear scanning technology in our service delivery model.

Help us “give the gift of hearing”!

In 2013 the World Health Organization (WHO) report stated, "In developing countries less than 3% of people who need a hearing aid are thought to have one". 3dp4me will leverage 3D printing and new 3D ear scanning technology. A portable 3D ear scanner gives us the ability to see a client in a home, village, or a refugee camp. Once we complete a 3D scan of our client, a 3D model is created in real-time on our internet cloud. Meanwhile, back in the lab, our 3D modeler can immediately start preparing the stl files for 3D printing. We can 3D print up to 35 ear molds in one hour.
