CEAD is headquartered in Delft, Netherlands, which is the hometown of one of Europe’s most prestigious technical universities. It’s not a coincidence that the company is rooted here, as the founders began their journey by developing a consumer 3D printer in 2010 while studying at this university.

After gaining this experience, the founders recognized the full potential of additive manufacturing and decided to pursue larger-scale solutions. As a result, in 2014, they established CEAD, which stands for Connecting Engineering and Design. Focusing on large-scale solutions, CEAD has been a pioneering force of innovation within the industry.

In 2017, the company patented the unique Continuous Fibre Additive Manufacturing (CFAM) technology, which allows for the high-speed fabrication of large-scale, continuous-fibre reinforced products. This invention demonstrates that innovation and passion for technology are at the core of CEAD’s values.

Today, the company has gained extensive experience designing and installing the world’s largest 3D printers. CEAD is committed to continuing to stay at the forefront of innovation, with the goal of accelerating innovation globally.


CEAD’s headquarters are based in Delft, the Netherlands.
