About Us

Company Information

Octave Systems has long standing expertise in online customer sales and support as a major online supplier of optical media equipment and accessories. Octave sells all the major brands on the market, including its own line, the Octave Copy Master series.

With the decline of the optical media industry, Octave has moved into the emerging Personal 3D printer market. The emphasis being on Personal 3D printing, since 3D printing has been around for quite a while, but its cost was prohibitive for small and medium sized companies, and certainly well outside the means of the hobbyist or home user. More recently however, the technology has come to the desktop and in an explosive manner.

Octave Systems has been involved from the start of this new era, and in fact were instrumental in establishing the UP 3D printer in the U.S. The UP has subsequently been re-branded into what is now the Afinia and sold only in the US under that brand. Octave Systems President, Roy Worthington, who had tested many 3D printers in the beginning, saw how good a printer the UP was from early on, and recognised the potential it had to make an impact on the market, so began the process of acquiring FCC approval. Unfortunately, Octave Systems had neither the network to market the product, nor the manpower to be able to provide the support required, and so approached an ally from the optical media industry, Microboards Technology, who eventually took over the reins.

Since then, there has been many a new personal 3D printer to hit the market, and Octave Systems continues its search for the best 3D printers, which must not only be technologically superior, but also provide equally excellent support (after all, a product is only as good as its support). The Afinia continues to be a top printer, but more recently another contender, the Zortrax M200 3D printer, has caught Octave's attention. The Zortrax M200 has produced some of the best prints the personal 3D printer industry has seen.

However, 3D printers is only one part of this technology. As it did with 3D printers, so too with 3D printing filament, Octave sought to find the best. Today, Octave sells a number of top brands such as Taulman's Nylon filament, the innovative Polymakr series, as well as its own Octave ABS and Octave PLA filaments. These are highly regarded in the personal 3D printing industry, where Octave has established its name along within a large and loyal customer base. Octave's filament is used by professionals, educational institutions, as well as hobby and home users.

Another aspect of Octave's online products is the supply of tools and accessories. The Octave online store offers a couple of Octave brand toolkits along with various accessories (such as Borosilicate glass and Kapton tape) that are very popular with most customers because they help to achieve more consistent printing results.
