Apogee Industries was founded in 2015 in Wichita Falls, TX. Since then we have been striving to use science and technology to create a better future. In 2020, we held the first groupbuy of the Mathkeeb™, a keyboard designed for easily typing mathematical expressions. Around the same time, Apogee Industries brought affordable 3D printing services to the greater Wichita Falls area, before closing our shop in late 2021.

Our Mission.

Our goal is to make cutting-edge technology solutions accessible to you. Whether it's a 3D printed prototype or a custom mechanical keyboard, we can make it yours.

Our Vision.

We work every day to bring our vision of a sci-fi future closer to reality, and we won't be satisfied until humanity can thrive on Mars, in the Belt, and beyond.

Our Values.

At Apogee Industries, our success is derived from strong collaborative effort and a shared desire to provide our clients and customers with reliable, personal, and cost effective solutions to meet their needs. We strive to be the friendly and hardworking company you can trust for custom 3D Printing.

The Future of Apogee Industries

Apogee Industries, LLC officially stopped doing business in Wichita Falls at the end of 2021 after facing increasing operating difficulties, and members deciding to persue other ventures. After thorough deliberation, we decided to officially close our doors and stop all production services for the forseeable future.

That said, all of our firmware and open sourced software will still remain available for some time. If you are a Mathkeeb™ user, you will still be able to download the latest firmwares for your keyboard and view documentation here on our website.
