Thomas Donahue, vice president of global sales for 3D Systems On Demand, says: “The customer is at the center of everything we do.
“The combination of ZVerse’s expertise and 3D Systems’ design for additive manufacturing processes will allow us to provide advanced design capabilities to our customers.
“This partnership enables a seamless customer experience, helping them achieve the final part they need, as efficiently as possible.”
- Users will gain process-specific guidance throughout their manufacturing project’s design phase with file optimization for their specific manufacturing needs and pre-production quality checks.
- Because the ZVerse technology and designer network can handle high volumes of projects, it also offers increased speed of service for 3D Systems’ On Demand customers.
The news reflects the evolving needs of the fast-growing additive manufacturing industry, which anticipates growth to $35.6 billion by 2024 according to the Wohlers Report 2019.
ZVerse founder and CEO John Carrington, says: “We’re excited to grow our relationship with 3D Systems as they leverage our CAD as a Service platform to improve customer experiences.
“The desired and proven outcome is providing the fastest path from idea to finished product at the scale required for on-demand manufacturing customers, particularly those who may not have 3D printable files or ready access to a design team to create them.”
The partnership will enable even more innovators, creators and manufacturers to use integrated design and manufacturing solutions within the 3D Systems On Demand services.
