3YOURMIND, a software company with bases in Berlin, San Francisco and Wroclaw, has enlisted ADDvance as an official partner and software distributor for the Spanish market. To make further inroads into the Spanish 3D printing market, part of the core team from 3YOURMIND will be located at the 3DFactory Incubator in Barcelona.
The 3DFactory Incubator is run by the Consorci de la Zona Franca de Barcelona and Fundación Leitat, two groups that will bolster and support 3YOURMIND in its entry into the Spanish market, connecting it with potential customers and other players in the local AM industry.
Spain is a relevant member of the international AM industry, home to numerous printer manufacturers and startups, as well as advanced AM centers run by GKN and ARRK and an HP digital manufacturing center in Barcelona. For 3YOURMIND, whose software is aimed at connecting and automating distribution industrial production centers, the move into the Spanish market is strategic, as it will create connections between the Southern European country and other European players.
“We see how fast Spain is adding additive manufacturing alongside their current production offering, which means they are ready to optimize their AM workflows now and over the coming years,” said Krystian Pawełczyk, Sales and Business Development at 3YOURMIND. “3YOURMIND wants to be the partner in pushing that development and using their software to lower the production management costs so that Spanish companies can meet their AM goals faster. Vamos!”
A key part of its presence in Spain will be tied to its partnership with ADDvance, an AM solutions company that offers training programs and industry connections among other executive offerings. The Spain-based company also has notable experience with AM software integration and automation.
For the foreseeable future, 3YOURMIND says it will work closely with ADDvance, helping to set the company up as a primary communication partner in Spain as well as a crucial “implementation point” in the region. As mentioned, 3YOURMIND will also be joining the 3DFactory Incubator in Barcelona.
“We are excited to be part of 3DFactory to bring our 3D printing workflow software to the Spanish industrial sector,” commented Marie Thiébault, Regional Sales Manager, France 3YOURMIND. “We want to take this opportunity to promote our solution to identify parts in additive manufacturing. This solution, called AMPI, uses a combination of economic and technical criteria to identify the best candidates to consider for additive manufacturing as a cost effective technology. Once identified, the parts with the greatest potential are loaded into a digital inventory directly synchronized with the production.”
