Kaedim secures $15 million in funding for AI-driven 3D asset creation technologies

Kaedim, a company providing innovative tools to simplify the creation of 3D content, recently secured $15 million in Series A funding. The firm debuted a new AI-driven marketplace, boasting an initial offering of 10,000 3D assets, including contributions from users. The influx of funds will support the enhancement of Kaedim’s platform, as well as facilitate growth in its team and reach.

The investment round was spearheaded by A16z Games and saw contributions from the Pioneer Fund, alongside notable investors such as Scott Gelb (ex-President of Games at Riot Games), Nate Mitchell (co-founder of Oculus), Eden Chen (CEO of Pragma), and Siqi Chen (CEO of Runway), among others.

In its quest to empower creators in the realm of 3D asset creation, Kaedim introduced a series of innovations. These include a comprehensive suite of tools designed to complement, not replace, the work of artists. The suite encompasses a 3D workflow solution compatible with current industry standards like Unreal and Blender, a collection of intelligent enhancements for 3D modeling workflows, including automated UV mapping, and a bespoke service for creating tailored 3D assets utilizing Kaedim’s proprietary machine learning technology, among other advanced features.

Konstantina Psoma, the CEO of Kaedim, highlighted the significant advancements in 3D technology over the past five years across various sectors, such as e-commerce, gaming, 3D printing, and AR/VR. She remarked, “We are facilitating the next evolution in 3D content creation, drawing parallels to the impact of DALL-E on 2D imagery and concept art.”
