The idea is to differentiate from other companies by building and standardizing the core technologies required for each manufacturing process by 3D printing. The funds raised will accelerate the research and development of new products that utilize 3D printing, as well as the construction of a one-stop digital platform that develops 3D printing manufacturing technology.

The 3D Printing Corporation platform is built on a wide variety of underlying 3D printers and post-processing solutions. “We aim to build a system that enables manufacturers to introduce 3D printing technology more smoothly and operate it by providing shape design and process design technologies that are the basis of 3D printing manufacturing,” added De Vore. “The funding network of shareholders will also enable us to provide solutions that leverage 3D printing technology to Japanese enterprises looking for ways to bring higher performance products to market faster. Furthermore, we will strengthen our customer support through financial support from shareholders.”
