uMake was dreamed up by developers, designers, and engineers who worked with the previous generation of design tools and CAD software -- in fact, co-founders Evi M. and Erik S. helped build them! We saw how these tools opened up personal and professional opportunities for us. But we also wanted to bring these possibilities to the world in a more accessible and empowering way, so Evi and Erik started building uMake from their homes in Israel. The local culture of excellence and reinvention that inspired us continues to be part of the uMake ethos today.
Seeking opportunities for growth, uMake eventually moved to Silicon Valley. Here, we added valuable team members and pushed our project ahead. We knew we'd reached a significant milestone when uMake was featured in the 2015 Apple iPad Pro Keynote event. We're continuing to innovate by exploring ways to improve uMake as a tool for the future.
Designing in 3D shouldn't have to require extensive training, expensive software, and complicated computers. We created uMake as a way for both novices and pros to examine, learn, imagine, make and share in 3D, any time, anywhere.
It's time for a new generation of 3D design tools, one that expands the horizons of what design software can be and do. Our vision of an easy-to-use, easy-to-learn and yet powerful and comprehensive tool is making uMake a favorite among creators of all skill levels and all walks of life.
We want uMake to be more than a design tool: we envision a creative environment that helps people explore, ideate, and connect. It's not just about making 3D things, but about allowing you to be more naturally and fully creative in every dimension.
