Hello (business) world!

Hello to my OneTwo3D blog. 

Yet another blog you may think? I hope it will be an interesting one. 

I will be writing about my experiences in setting up a small business from scratch, the highs (and lows) and anything interesting I had to master to get where I am now.

A bit about myself first: I’m a technology enthusiast, engineer by trade and this business is at the moment a first experiment for me in entering the self-employed world (I have a full-time job, so at the moment this is more a hobby and trial).

Where did the idea come from? I really enjoy tech stuff, from Raspberry Pis, over drones (I own a DJI Mini 2), to 3D printers (at the moment I own an Creality Ender 5 and I’m on the way of building my own Voron 2.4).

Along the way of looking into my Voron build I realised that it isn’t easy to

  • source components for 3D printers from reliable sellers
  • for reasonable prices
  • without long delivery times
  • and/or the risk of having to pay import duties or addiitonal fees.

So I decided to give it a try and open my own shop… crazy idea but yes, why not? 

What I didn’t expect is how much “stuff” around needs to be done, organised, bought, subscribed to, etc. before I can even do my first sale (or am I too perfectionistic here?)

Enough for blog #1… in the next ones I will be talking about my experiences in

  • registering a Limited company
  • getting a bank account for said company 
  • setting up this website (which hosting provider to use, which e-commerce system, payment provider, etc.)
  • Which products to sell next and where to source them from?

I hope that sounds promising to you, let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading. Does anyone? Let me know in the comments 🙂


Jan (male btw… difficult name to have in the UK 😉
