Who are WE
Established in 2015, BIGTREETECH has become one of the most popular 3D printer brands among global creators. With excellent technology and deep customer insights, it has become the fashion leader on the mainboard of 3D printers. Yet the company has experienced a tortuous development.
Eric, a university graduate, and the creator had always been dreaming of assembling a 3D printer by his hand. Having done some research in the market, he found that there was no suitable mainboard for a 3D printer. He also noticed that he was not the only one with such a need: he had been spending much time on forums and other social media for creators, knowing that many creators complained about the lack of a good mainboard. With a national scholarship of 5000 RMB, he made an important decision.
In Shenzhen, the city known as Chinese Silicon Valley, he founded his company and registered the trademark “BIGTREETECH”, and later engaged himself in the research and development of the mainboard for 3D printers. The initial start-up was a tiny office of about 2 ㎡, with no desks and no chairs. Eric says, “I can’t recall how many consecutive days I had stayed up for at that time. When I was hungry I ate instant noodles and when I got problems I asked for help in the forum for creators. What was astonishing was that I didn’t feel tired at all because I was doing things I loved and more importantly I was trying to solve an urgent problem that had troubled global creators for so long.”
