Job Shops are Losing Money Using the Wrong CAD

Job Shops are Losing Money Using the Wrong CAD | 3D Printing in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

You’ve heard the expression, “Time is money.” It’s credited to Ben Franklin, and it couldn’t be more true. You can’t get time back, no matter how hard you try.



So…if 52% of the respondents of the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Study spend between 4-24 hours a week fixing geometry, that loss of time is costing contract manufacturers money, plain and simple. This even happens when the files are in the same CAD application. The complexity of that file can make it impossible to make modifications—and let’s face it—modifications are the norm. This is why direct modeling is becoming more and more important for the future of job shops. And organizations that rely on Direct Modeling have a competitive advantage since they can open it in native formats and dramatically reduce the time spent fixing broken geometry.

Shapeways Gets More Cash. Lots More Cash | 3D Printing in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

Shapeways has focused on the consumer and prosumer markets thus far, and has been quite successful, often being the first 3D service on the lips of many users. They’ve expanded several times and now operate a rather large “factory of the future” in a nondescript Brooklyn industrial warehouse building. 

A couple of years ago the company took a previous USD$30M, with which they built out their Brooklyn operation and hired additional staff to grow their business. 

So can we expect the same here with another USD$30M? Perhaps, but there’s another story unfolding behind the scenes, something that happens in all startup companies: increased valuation...Read More....
