Optimise processes using integrated 3D solutions in an Industrie 4.0-ready company

3D technologies will change the way we design,
produce and sell.


The integration of 3D solutions will enable companies to be more efficient and to increase customer engagement, product quality and internal process management.

Through the use of the latest and most innovative 3D technologies, companies will be able to offer customers the opportunity to purchase customised products, making a profitable transition into the Mass Customisation era. Mass Customisation is one of the key elements of Industrie 4.0, a new frontier that digital factories need to conquer in order to meet the needs of the market.

Additive Manufacturing technologies allow for implementing on-demand production processes, with a significant reduction in delivery times and costs. The market is therefore expected to see a transition from product-oriented companies to service-oriented companies, regardless of the specific sector.


The hyper-connected world in which we live will forever change the way we think, design and produce. Today, businesses have the opportunity to take on the challenge of the fourth industrial revolution, digitising their processes. One of the ways to achieve this is through the implementation and use of 3D technologies.

How significant an impact will integrated 3D solutions have on the future of a company’s design, production and sales processes?
