Additive Manufacturing in the Cloud combined with Logistics
UPS and SAP have announced plans to launch a distributed, on-demand manufacturing network based on 3D printing that will be available through The UPS Store in more than 60 locations around the U.S.
This offering provides 3D printing services in the cloudby using just the service and logistics of external 3D printing.
The new service hopes to target several business opportunities for 3D printing including:
- Manufacturers who want to reduce inventory for slow-moving parts.
- Manufacturers with short production runs where the cost to create the mold or tooling could make these orders
too expensive for traditional manufacturing.
- Industrial designers and engineers who want high-quality rapid prototypes delivered quickly.
- Entrepreneurs, start-ups and manufacturers who don’t currently have access to 3D printers.
