How DiManEx distributed 3D manufacturing works

Helping you build a smarter digital supply chain.

Our digital supply platform makes it possible to digitize and streamline your supply chain. Instead of mass-producing parts, then warehousing and transporting them, 3D printing and related advanced manufacturing techniques allow you to produce parts on-demand and closer to the end user. This increases flexibility and speed in your product lifecycle. It improves your environmental footprint and helps you save costs on materials, logistics and stock keeping units (SKUs).

Before you get started, identifying, ranking and selecting the right parts is crucial. Our expertise and software help you do that. We provide a thorough analysis which will help you identify how additive manufacturing can optimize your supply chain. Once you’ve selected the right parts, we’ll make sure they are print-ready and assign their production to the Additive Manufacturing Partner in our network that best matches your needs and specifications.

Data import & data aggregation

First, we aggregate data from various sources to run advanced analytics and accelerate part identification. Our analysis looks at supply chain data (e.g. minimum order quantities, stock locations, etc) as well as technical information (e.g. materials, technical dimensions, and tolerance, among other data points).

Evaluate supply chain optimization potential

Our analysis results in a dashboard for your parts, which determines if they are eligible for 3D manufacturing, both from a supply chain, financial perspective and based on technical requirements.

Prepare and approve the design

Within our platform, a seamless collaboration tool supports the design conversion and approval process. After this, we send you a sample for approval. We also provide reverse engineering, 3D scanning and re-engineering services to customers who need to adjust or create their designs.
