Link3D and 3D Systems recently announced a partnership to digitally transform 3D Systems’ On-Demand manufacturing operations. This partnership enables 3D Systems to establish a single source of truth for their additive manufacturing value stream; eliminating manual and redundant systems. 3D Systems implementation of Link3D is also driving improved customer satisfaction by increasing production efficiency and transparency from request-to-delivery.
Along with the core software offerings, Link3D provides 3D Systems with newly released features including:
- Post-production management app enabling end-to-end processes with the production dashboard that automatically keeps track of queued, completed and failed jobs. 3D Systems is able to eliminate paper trails and mobilize the work for operators; reducing hours spent focused on hundreds of orders per day.
- ITAR & export controlled deployment provides 3D Systems with controlled functionality to ensure regulatory compliance including government cloud deployment, permissioning and access control as well as the ability to support routing to ITAR approved facilities.
According to Tracy Beard, 3d Systems on demand director of operations, "3D Systems on demand operates multiple additive manufacturing processes in-house. As our offerings grew, we realized that a world class workflow automation solution was needed. Partnering with Link3D helped us take our additive manufacturing offering to the next level, and the efficiencies gained from implementing Link3D are having an immediate impact on both on-time delivery, quality, with the benefits of real-time analytics. The onboarding process was very smooth and easy. The agility and willingness of the Link3D team to customize to our specific needs was something we’ve not seen from other software solutions.”
