We are Lab3d
We are Hans Lankhaar and Bram van den Haspel. We are both fascinated by the possibilities of 3d printing. The world is on the verge of a new era of product design and product distribution. Lab3d aims to contribute to this transition with clever and feasible 3d designs and services that fit the context of the real world.

We also use our knowledge in this field to:
How we work?
It depends. Sometimes we initiate projects ourselves and then we find for partners to setup a successful business or project. And sometimes people find us and we work on commission. But we always start playing around, exploring and using our hands and brains to develop the most inspiring and useful ideas.
S or XXL?
Most 3D printed objects are quite small, for the simple reason that most 3D printers are small. But is it feasible to produce large 3D printed product, like a building? Yes, it is possible to print large objects with a coarse resolution in a short amount of time, but these low resolution objects cannot accommodate technical features like piping and isolation. But printing large products in high resolution is very time consuming. A solution is parallel printing. A large product can be divided in smaller elements and produced in an array of printers maintaining a high resolution and keeping up the speed. We are developing innovative ways to connect these smaller elements in a solid way.
Hans Lankhaar and Bram van den haspel
Hans Lankhaar is an industrial designer, specialized in 3D print technology and 3D modelling. Bram is an all-round designer, concept developer and expert in commercialization of ideas. Please check below for more background information about Hans and Bram.
Bram van den Haspel
Bram van den Haspel is an experienced designer, researcher and entrepreneur. He studied Physics (Msc) at the Delft University of Technology and Design at the Academy of Visual Arts in Rotterdam. He started out his career in the field of sustainable technology. In 1995 he worked as an independent product designer. His assignments became more and more architectural in nature, thus he started an architectural firm in 2000 together with an associate. Since 2009 he has been in full swing as a product designer, once again, and even brings some products onto the market on his own. From 2011 he is also worked on problems in the field of 3D printing, especially the production of big products, printed in parts on multiple printers.

Hans Lankhaar is an experienced designer and engineer. After finishing his bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at the age of 21 he wanted to become an all-round designer with knowledge of the creative and technical aspects of product development. With a master’s degree in Integrated Product Design Hans started working as a product designer and engineer at Rubber Design. Four years later he wanted more creative freedom and started SYNBL, a product design agency. A shared fascination for 3D printing let Bram and Hans together. They founded LAB3D, exploring the boundaries of 3D printing and its almost limitless potential.
