The Be3Dimensional Innovation Fund

Co-founded by Ryerson University and Think2Thing, the Be3Dimensional Innovation Fund was established to support Canada's greatest innovators who are pushing the boundaries of 3D printing, scanning and modelling technologies through application in art, medicine, manufacturing, engineering, fashion and design. The inaugural recipients will each receive up to a maximum of $50,000 to create their works that utilize 3D technology.


The inaugural Be3Dimensional Innovation Fund grants were awarded in the arts category. Two Canadian artists who are breaking new ground using 3D printing technology were selected by The National Gallery of Canada and the Ryerson Image Centre to be the first recipients of the grants

The initial grant was made possible by generous donations from Ryerson University, the Brookfield Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Mr. Sabi Marwah.


On the heels of the inaugural Be3Dimensional Innovation Fund
in Art, Be3D 
has established a second fund in Fashion. This fund
will similarly award two 
Canadian designers $50,000 each to create
new works using 3D technologies. The intention of this fund is to
encourage Canada’s designers to further their 
creative thinking and
become part of this revolution as innovators on the seam

of art and tech.

The winners of the Be3Dimensional Innovation Fund - Fashion will be
selected by a Fashion Jury, Chaired by Toronto’s own
Jeanne Beker.
