Company Profile

WHAT IS 3DPONICS? Promising to change what we are eating and how we?re getting it, 3Dponics is a 3D-printable hydroponics system that allows you to grow your own food without the use of toxic chemicals and in the comfort of your own living room. BENEFITS With 3Dponics, you?ll always have the freshest produce within reach and, best of all, you?re in control of what goes into your food. Because of its vertical design, the 3Dponics system can fit practically anywhere?in your kitchen or living room; on a balcony or patio; or outside in your yard. What?s more, because the core components are 3D printable, you can customize it and create a garden that reflects your personality and needs. The system is easy to set up and extremely energy efficient (costing just cents per day to operate). APPLICATIONS OF 3DPONICS 3Dponics presents a realistic solution to a number of today?s problems, from the rising cost of produce and food insecurity to climate change and space farming. It is also an incredibly valuable teaching tool in today?s K-12 classrooms, which are becoming increasingly focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). We?ve tackled many projects over the past few months (read more about 3Dponics in Schools, Customization Tool, 3Dponics Idea App), and our latest endeavour, 3Dponics in Space, is a perfect example of how we?re shaping the world for future generations. If you like what we?re doing, join us by signing up to the 3Dponics online community and engaging with other members. Your support is crucial to our success!

Products/Services

  • STEM Education 3Dponics is collaborating with educators across Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia to get our do-it-yourself, open-source hydroponics systems into K-12 classrooms everywhere. The countless lessons and activities made possible by 3Dponics offer a highly engaging, hands-on way to teach science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as well as expose children to technologies of the future from an early age. 3Dponics allows students at any grade level to acquire the skills , knowledge and experience to succeed in today?s tech-driven job market. 3D printing is a valuable teaching tool that can help students understand, retain and master complex theories they learn in class. By adding a physical form to abstract concepts, 3D printing allows students who don?t perform well in the traditional learning environment to excel. The fact is that a lot of youth do not do well in the widely popular ?theory-first? approach to education. Because of this, a large number of youth struggle in school, lose interest in science and end up not meeting their full potential. In addition, 3D printing speeds up the modeling and prototyping process, allowing design and engineering students to test their models and arrive to viable solutions quicker than ever before. Contact us today to set up a 3Dponics system in your classroom.

  • Maker Movement Building your own garden and growing your own food is empowering, but what makes 3Dponics even more exciting is the fact that it?s free and open source, giving you the power to create a garden that meets your personal needs and tastes. All of the source files are free and available to download across multiple platforms. What you do with them is completely up to you?whether you want to build the original vertical hydroponics system or tinker with the design files to create something truly unique. Possibly the most important feature of 3Dponics is our online community, which gives you a wealth of knowledge and resources at your fingertips. Join the community and get inspired by the multitude of projects we?re all working on, including our latest mission: to create a 3D-printable, efficient and compact space farm!

  • Space Farming 3Dponics is going to change all of that. In our latest pursuit, we are trying to create the most practical and efficient garden that can be used not just on Earth, but in space as well. And that?s where you come in. We need members of our community to help us transform 3Dponics into a functional and efficient space farm, which can be printed and assembled in space, thereby offering astronauts a continuous source of fresh food. If you?re thinking we?re out of this world with our ideas, consider that NASA has already been researching and testing such systems for years?all with huge success. The knowledge that we are gaining is enabling us to extend our exploration and future colonization of space. ? Shane Topham, Engineer at Space Dynamics Laboratory (Utah State University)
