GAITHERSBURG, Md. and COLUMBIA, S.C., April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Xometry, the largest on-demand manufacturing platform, has partnered with ZVerse, the leading 3D design on-demand platform, to create manufacturable 3D files for customers who need parts designed from scratch, existing CAD files modified or legacy parts reverse engineered.
“A common manufacturing roadblock we see is that a customer needs a part produced, but they may not have a 3D file or their current file is not ready for manufacturing,” said Randy Altschuler, co-founder and CEO of Xometry. “Also, many customers need reverse engineering of their legacy parts that have been manufactured for years without a digital file which is required for today’s digital manufacturing age. By partnering with ZVerse, we’ve removed these roadblocks for our customers to get the custom manufactured parts they need. ”
ZVerse’s 3D Design On-Demand platform bridges the gap from an idea or a 2D image data file to a 3D file optimized for the selected manufacturing process including CNC, injection molding, sheet metal fabrication, 3D printing and more. Machine learning is used to predict the cost to design a part for manufacturing in any material or process which reduces a major friction point to execute design for manufacturing at scale.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Xometry to provide a valuable solution for their customers,” said John Carrington, CEO of ZVerse. “Our 3D design on-demand platform enables Xometry to capture additional manufacturing opportunities by providing a digital file ready for manufacturing. We’ve combined our machine learning technology and proprietary content management tools with our world class designers to provide customers the fastest path from an idea or existing 2D content into a manufacturable part produced in any material or process.”
