A new Singapore-based startup, Secur3DP+, is aiming to connect global companies with additive manufacturing through a secure supply chain hub. The startup was formed through a joint venture between NTUitive, the innovation and enterprise company of the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and ISF Incubator, the startup arm of Intellectual Ventures.

The jointly launched startup is based on a proprietary blockchain solution developed at NTU Singapore which addresses transaction security, quality assurance and IP protection. Secur3DP+ will have access to NTU’s expertise in both blockchain and 3D printing technologies and already has rights to number of ISF patents and patent applications.

Security is an ongoing concern in the additive field, as adopters and potential adopters of the technology must protect their digital files throughout the manufacturing process. Secur3DP+’s solution essentially connects companies from high-value industries, including healthcare, aerospace, defense and more, to vetted service providers in its global 3D printing network. Once a connection is established, all projects are validated and authorized by Secur3DP+, which ensures that products are manufactured delivered in a cost-effective and protected way.

“Our company is filling a critical gap in the mass adoption of 3D printing,” said Eng Kiat Low, CEO of Secur3DP+. “By creating a global ecosystem of trusted partners, we hope to accelerate the adoption of 3D printing and allow businesses all over the world to get the products they need and do so securely, anytime, anywhere.”

The Singapore-based startup has received initial funding from ISF Incubator and will leverage its relationship with NTU Singapore and the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) to establish partnerships with Singapore’s many startups and fertile 3D printing ecosystem.

“Singapore has a great ecosystem for startups, and our partnership with NTU gives us access to one of the region’s top technology institutions,” said Jerome Hewlett, vice president and head of Asia business development for ISF. “We’re excited to grow Secur3DP+ over the coming years, and we continue to look for strong local entrepreneurs to lead other companies throughout the region.”

This is not the first time that NTU Singapore and ISF have collaborated: in 2016, the groups partnered through NAMIC to develop a module for 3D printers to embed unique identifiers within the structure of metal printed parts. Now, the focus on 3D printing security is taken to the next level with the launch of Secur3DP+.
