As technology, has marking its steps to the seventh sky, its sometimes easy to forgot that not everyone in the world has the opportunity to gain access of techno things.
Among of many things, 3D printers are becoming red note these days in the world of technology, but unfortunately this newly enhanced technology has very less access to one’s desktop computers.
The young talent of Pakistan Farrukh Bhabha who has proved his mettle in the international software development field and now the talented boy is all set to raise Pakistani flag in the hardware field. This 23-year-old student has assembled a 3D printer that is four times cheaper than the 3D printers being produced in international market. Farrukh is also creating a local software to operate these 3D printers through mobile phones.Read more
KARACHI: US Consul General Brian Heath on Wednesday reiterated his government commitment to promote local entrepreneurship in Pakistan. “US government is committed to support entrepreneurs in Pakistan,” Heath said at the launch of a technology incubator.

Meet Farrukh Bhabha, CEO of Print 3D Pakistan. Print 3D is the pioneer of professional 3D printing service in Pakistan that allows user to print customizable object. The journey began when I was an intern at an institution that worked with 3D printers. I learnt everything there was to know about 3D printing technology. My learning process revealed that Pakistan was an untapped region as far as 3D printing was concerned while other countries were making history with the technology. Later, this became my inspiration to put Pakistan on the map for 3D printing technology.Read more

By 2020, the worldwide 3D printing industry is expected to generate $21B revenue and Print3D-Pakistan’s CEO Farrukh Bhabha wants to tap into that emolument.Read more
The journey started when Farukh bhabha was an intern in an institution that worked with 3D printers. Farukh learnt all that there was about 3D printing. He realized that Pakistan is lacking behind in this amazing technology and this motivated him to start his own business in this field. So it began with a group thesis project where each member contributed 25000 to work on their first 3D printer. With encouragement from Dr Imran Amin and initial capital injection of Rs450000, Farrukh later turned this assignment into a successful start-up.Read more
Three major reasons through which 3D printing is made attractive to manufacturing industries, research & development, and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) community are Prototyping, product development, and innovation in Pakistan. A wide spectrum of fields are included by the typical 3D printing industries such as Aerospace, Architecture, Automotive, Defense, Medical, Education, Commercial products, Consumer Electronics etc. DPS World 2016 will going to be a game changer for printing industry in PakistanRead more
Farrukh Bhabha ventured into the realm of 3D printing purely by chance. As a final year undergraduate student he needed to complete a senior project to graduate. The project tasked him and his team members to come up with a working model of a new gadget but they were struggling for ideas that would stand out from the crowd. However, one thing that they agreed upon was that their project had to stretch the boundaries of innovation and creativity, whilst also providing a sustainable business solution.Read more
