DSM, world science-based firm and material producer, recently showcased a digital program for 3D printing at Formnext 2019. The digital workflow, created with six start-up associates is a section of DSM’s I AM Tomorrow challenge. It aims to breach a gap in the 3D printing worth succession in the screening design and simulation steps. It also aims to increase the adoption of technology.
The growth of the workflow program has been continuing for the last three months. This is together with 3D printing software start-ups Authentise, iPoint, Ecochain, Neural Concept, Additive Flow, and nTopology.
DSM targets to grow a commercially practical account of its digital platform in the near tomorrow. ”At DSM, we want to remove common barriers to the adoption of 3D printing. A digital platform, capable of giving manufacturers a detailed and personalized 3D printing workflow, will remove a lot of the complexity that has crept into the industry in recent years,” VP Additive Manufacturing DSM Hugo da Silva, commented.
“By supporting promising start-ups and working closely together with them and our partners, we are strengthening our 3d printing ecosystem and accelerating the adoption of additive manufacturing across the globe.”
DSM was founded in 192 and operates around the full spectrum of health, nutrition, and materials. But the firm keeps a meaningful footprint in 3D printing and also manufacturing a wealth of supplies for 3D printing. The firm continues to collaborate and associate with different companies in the additive manufacturing value chain. This includes the kinds of Adaptive3D, Fortify, and Origin.
DSM has as well unveiled collaborative program intended to seed u the 3D printing adoption. The program is called Trimax Collective. It provides the firms the versatility to have and fund in 3D printing materials and hardware. This is through a lease scheme with present members as well as UK-based commercial 3D printer OEM RPS.
The firm announced, in June 219, I Am Tomorrow Challenge which is an acceleration program. It’s for startups and scaleups centered on data analytics, Al also other high-level software solutions or full-scale additive manufacturing. Rationalizing the 3D printing procedure stream is highlighted as a target of the challenge.
DSM stretched an offer to startups around the world to join in the accelerator program. It was started in partnership with tech startup accelerator HighTechXL. Hexagon is a leading technology firm based in Sweden and Ultimaker is a 3D printer manufacturer based in the Netherlands.
A total of candidates took part in the I AM Tomorrow challenge. The startups mentioned earlier were chosen by DSM from the pond of candidates to grow the digital workflow program. The platform that targets to turn customers’ needs into making solutions.
“The I AM Tomorrow challenge is the ninth start-up challenge from DSM, and we have experience nurturing and challenging start-up companies to grow. Through the accelerator program, we get to know the capabilities of the candidates and how they work with other eco-system players, while the start-ups get to know DSM,” says Pieter Wolters, Managing Director DSM Venturing.
