Print Your Mind 3D was founded in early 2014 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where we still operate today. What started as a small local 3D printing service has grown to Canada's highest rated provider of professional desktop 3D printing equipment. We are official Canadian sales partners with industry leading 3D printer manufacturers including Ultimaker and Lulzbot. Not only that, we actually use the same printers that we sell in our offices every day. With over 5 years of 3D printing experience in Canada, you can rest assured that you are getting a printer that you can rely on and get the support you need when it counts.
We Do More Than Just Sell 3D Printers:
We do more than just sell 3D printers, we create long lasting social impact in the communities we serve thanks to our Enviromaker initiatives around education, innovation, and medicine. A portion of every sale directly supports these initiatives.
We Believe in More Than Just Profits
We aim to have the greatest positive impact in all of the communities we work in. We work with hundreds of students, teachers, and professionals all over Canada to share our philosophy around 3D Printing for Good. Learn more about our work by visiting our Enviromakers Initiatives.
Print Your Mind 3D is constantly working to minimize our ecological footprint. Using renewable energy to power our operations, using/testing and promoting eco-friendly filaments, and working to develop new recycling systems for waste material are just a few examples.
The final piece to building a long lasting and sustainable business is generating a profit while keeping true to our values. Most importantly, we don't believe that financial sucess is in any way opposed with our key values of benefiting "people" and the "planet" through our work.
Our Printers Are Powered by the Wind!
We are proud to be Canada's first 3D printer supplier whose operatons are fully powered by renewable energy.
What Have We Done?
Donated over 50 prosthetics to people in need around the world
Inspired over 500 students, teachers, and volunteers to become agents of change
Donated over $2000 to charities and non-profit groups who align with our mission
Canadian Owner Operated
Our founder, Colin Pischke, still runs our day-to-day operations. When he isn't helping to pack orders with personalized hand written notes, helping with support inquiries, or following up to support new printer customers, he spends his time working with schools and other educational institutions to learn how to use modern technology to benefit people and the planet.
Although our team has grown, we still are not a "Big-box" retailer. That is why we go the extra mile to make sure that your experience getting started with 3D printing is a complete success. It is this kind of personalized care and attention that you can expect from Print Your Mind 3D that you won't find anywhere else.

Ten to One
We are on a mission to spread the benefits of 3D printing for good. For every TEN 3D prnters we sell, from June 1st to July 31st, we will donate ONE. We will donate this printer to a Canadian school or community hub who could otherwise not afford one.
Print Your Mind 3D's
Bilaterial Transhumeral Amputee
We are working with a team of doctors, designers, prosthetist, and engineers from across the world as part of the Medical Makers project. The recipient lives in a village in rural Nigeria where he was involved in an electrical accident resulting in the loss of both arms above the elbow.
The project was divided into two phases punctuated by a trip to Sunday in February 2017, by a member of the team. In Phase I, we developed a 3D scanning protocol in an effort to secure usable scans of Sunday’s residual limbs. Our Phase 1 design consisted of an entirley 3D printed socket, fore arm, and terminal device.
We were able to learn from the failures of Phase 1 in developing a Phase 2 prosthesis which was developed closely with a professional prosthetist. This included a traditionally formed socket and purchased forearm with a 3D printed terminal device.
As part of the final delivery in Phase 2, we also provided Sunday with an entirley traditional prosthesis for him to have a basis of comparison using a hook style device. We we very proud to have been able to work with and improve the life of such a deserving young man. Print Your Mind 3D covered the cost of prototyping and printing the majority of the various components in both phases of this project.
