How DiManEx distributed 3D manufacturing works

We help you build a smarter digital supply chain. From data to parts delivered.

Our end-to-end service makes it possible to digitize and streamline your supply chain. Instead of mass-producing parts, then warehousing and transporting them, 3D printing and related 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).

Identifying the right parts for 3D printing is crucial. DiManEx’s Supply Chain Inspector helps you do that. It enriches your existing data with 3D printing capabilities, so you can identify how digital manufacturing technologies can help you optimize your supply chain. Once you’ve selected the right parts, we help you ensure that they are print-ready and assign their production to the Additive Manufacturing Partner in our network that best matches your needs and specifications.

Secure data import & aggregation

First, upload your data to run our analytics engine. Your data is safe with us. Our software is engineered to protect your intellectual property and meet the industry’s highest security standards.

Evaluate supply chain optimization potential

Using Supply Chain Inspector’s friendly dashboards, you can better visualize your data, easily apply filters and identify priority areas using machine learning algorithms. You get an overview of metrics like minimum order quantities and lead times, as well as technical information (materials, technical dimensions and tolerance, among other data points). This enables you to make the most informed decisions and determine which parts are eligible for Additive Manufacturing.

Prepare and approve the design

Within our platform, a seamless collaboration tool supports the design conversion and internal review 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 their designs or create them from scratch.
