Book publication: The Power of Platforms – 3D printing platforms

The Rathenau Institute and Vakmedianet published a book on new strategies for innovating in a digitalizing world. Nanning de Jong analyzed the upcoming 3D printing platforms in this book.

De Kracht van Platformen - 3D printen - platformen in de maak - door Nanning de Jong Super Tangible en Maurits Kreijveld Rathenau Insituut 1920 Several companies in the manufacturing industry are building integrated 3D printing platforms by mergers and by bringing new products to the market. 3D Printing becomes rapidly mature and changes the manufacturing process. The entire process from design and development to production and distribution gets digitalized. With possibly disruptive consequences: new earnings models, new power distributions and a new logic for innovating. The Netherlands has several manufacturers of 3D printers for home use, a lively network of FabLabs and a trend setter as Shapeways that grows rapidly in the USA. Meanwhile, several dynamics can be observed in the market. American players like 3D Systems and Stratasys are acquiring (Dutch) companies and become suppliers of integrated 3D printing solutions for major industries and home users. Their business comes from the sale of 3D printers, the materials and 3D printed end products. The Dutch AddLab bundles companies from the manufacturing industry to develop 3D printing capabilities together. What do these developments mean for the future of 3D printing in The Netherlands? What companies are already taking strategic positions, are seeking dominance or try to monopolize designs? What changes in the innovation dynamics?

3Ders.org: The beginning of 3D printing as a direct marketing tool

Artcle by 3Ders.org originally published on Feb.28, 2014

Although 3D printing has been charting new territory in areas from medicine to fashion, the rather obvious benefits of 3D printing in marketing are often overlooked; 3D software company Loft has taken the natural step of using 3D printing as a marketing tool.

Loft is a 3D software company which develops software for the furniture retail and interior design market. Consumers are able to take a photo of their living space and, with a few clicks, use it to redesign the space digitally with the 3D software. The spaces can be digitally decked-out using the 3D software program – including things like lamps and furniture from specific retailers.
