Leapfrog 3D Printers

Leapfrog was founded by four friends; Martijn Otten, Maarten Logtenberg, Mathijs Kossen and Lucas Janssen.

The foundation of Leapfrog came about when Martijn stumbled across a problem. He was in need of a specific spare part which was unavailable and could not be manufactured at the time. He was familiar with 3D printers and thought about how easy it would have been to simply print it out right then and there. This thought led him to buy a 3D printer kit, and together with Mathijs they assembled it, yet remained unsatisfied. To them, the tradeoff between price, quality, and quantity seemed off, i.e. a very expensive kit which could only print out small unassembled objects.

At the same time, Maarten was busy developing a 3D printer of his own that addressed this problematic situation, one that could print large and fully assembled objects along with being affordable. Maarten’s design ultimately led to the Leapfrog Creatr. Lucas was working as an intern and designed the Leapfrog Xeed, ultimately being added to the team.

Leapfrog was born.

Vision

Leapfrog aims to bridge the gap between the current state of technology of 3D printers and the future of 3D printing as a whole. We want to make 3D printers that create high quality printed products, and make those 3D printers available and affordable to a broad user base.

Goals

  • We want to offer the most competitive printers possible at affordable prices
  • Our customers are at the heart of our business
  • We want our printers to be plug and play

Location

The headquarters of Leapfrog is situated in Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands.
