We approach manufacturing as a product of our constant desire to evolve capability and maximize value for customers using 3D printing and software. We live in a knowledge-based world, and thanks to machine intelligence, automation and increased connectivity, new value streams are constantly emerging. The need for rapid response design iteration to meet consumer demand is generating new business models, and manufacturers must respond with shorter production cycles and compressed product life cycles. 3D Systems can make that a reality with leading 3D printing, engineering software, materials and expert services.

Deliver greater innovation in your next new product through additive manufacturing plus 3D Systems’ global teams of engineering application experts to help you on your way.

Embracing the Digital Factory

To compete in today’s global economy, manufacturers will have to embrace a digital approach that works alongside traditional production processes. In short, you have to create physical products at a digital pace. We call this the “Digital Factory” and we are here to help. Traditional factory processes have been fine-tuned over the years for process repeatability, part durability, efficient workflow, and low operational costs.  Today new marketplace demands are pushing industry to increase speed and agility. Competitive pressures require shorter production cycles and fast product ecosystem evolution. The industrialization of additive manufacturing allows companies to respond to these demands with digital speed and accuracy.
