Quite a few months ago Carbon It became famous thanks to its innovative technology, which dazzled many manufacturers, although the one that moved the fastest, and that is why it is the one that has been using it and taking advantage of it until now, has been Adidas. Surely after announcing the German clothing manufacturer you will have realized that Carbon is precisely the company behind the manufacture of custom footwear for the famous sports brand.
After all these months and proving that its technology has come to stay, thanks to more than striking and interesting results that an entire industry liked, the time has come to move forward and for that nothing better than to open a new round of financing to receive sufficient capital inflows to bring this technology to more companies. The result of this has been nothing less than the input of 200 million from Sequioia Capital, Fidelity Management & Research Company, Baillie Gifford, Adidas VC, Hydra Ventures and GE Ventures among others.

Since Carbon first introduced digital light synthesis, we have continually pushed boundaries and transformed industries, today being uniquely positioned to take digital manufacturing to a whole new level. This funding will help us create new classes of workers and business models, where product design and engineering will be facilitated by cloud-based computing and a wide range of scanning, sensor and simulation technologies that will enable seamless product creation. tight and even custom that were previously impossible to produce.
