3D Printing Solution

A Comprehensive Approach to Address Different Needs

Business Challenge

3D Printing, or Additive Manufacturing, is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. The global 3D printing market has been around for decades, however, only now is it starting to explode with a myriad of applications for consumers. Current uses of 3D Printing include medical devices, food, fashion accessories, automotive parts, home-ware design, construction as well as customized toys that scan facial features and print personalized characters.

However, with new technology come challenges, especially around performance, compliance and trust.

While the market is continuing to experience rapid growth, raw material suppliers, 3D printer brands, manufacturers, retailers, product designers and industrial users / vendors are facing different challenges:
■ Which legal requirements must my product meet?
■ How can I provide trust to my buyers / end users?
■ What kind of electrical and safety tests should be conducted to demonstrate product safety?
