Chicago based startup Inventables announced it raised new funding to continue launching 3D carving software and machines.

The startup announced it has raised $11.5 million in Series C funding from Cue Ball,  which lead the funding in this round. Supporting investors in this round includes Greycroft, Pipeline Capital, Draper Associates, True Ventures, Mike Gamson and Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn, Inc.

Inventables plans to use the new capital to enhance its 3D design and carving software Easel, so that it can be more comparable  with machines manufactured by its partners.

“We are excited to see thousands of American businesses using our products for production,” said Zach Kaplan, CEO and founder of Inventables, in a statement. “This investment enables Inventables to enhance the functionality and compatibility of our Easel software, helping our business customers produce products faster and more profitably.”

Inventables software is used to make products like guitars, signs, furniture, jewelry and even drones. Some larger firms use the 3D carving machines to develop prototypes for larger-scale manufacturing projects.
