Xometry, the largest global marketplace for on-demand manufacturing, launched its popular online service for instant quoting on 3D printing in Europe. Customers will now have access to instant quotes and design-for-manufacturability feedback on 3D printing with just a few clicks via Xometry’s Instant Quoting Engine.

Xometry Europe’s new 3D printing offerings include Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) printing in six high-quality materials. The company will continue to expand its process and material offerings throughout the year. Engineers can update their models and receive the price and lead time adjustments in near-real-time for both processes.

Just a couple of months ago, Xometry had acquired Munich-based Shift, the largest on-demand (subtractive+formative-only) manufacturing marketplace in Europe. Through the acquisition, Xometry accelerated its international expansion into 12 new countries, leveraging a worldwide network of over 4,000 manufacturers.

“Global expansion is a key step for us,” said at the time Xometry CEO Randy Altschuler. “Many of our customers, like BMW and Bosch, have a global presence and we can serve more of their needs with a global network. Our AI-driven algorithms and intelligent sourcing platform give us a competitive advantage as we expand across new geographies and manufacturing technologies.”

Dmitry Kafidov, Managing Director of Xometry Europe, now added: “We’re thrilled to offer our customers the ability to instantly price custom 3D printed parts. They will now receive prices and lead times for their 3D printing orders within seconds, and be able to order their parts in a few clicks.”

In addition to 3D printing on-demand, Xometry Europe offers CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication, and post-processing of metals and polymers through its online platform. In December 2019, Xometry acquired Shift, the largest manufacturing network in Europe. The company has raised $118 million dollars to date from major investors such as BMW i Ventures, Robert Bosch Venture Capital, Dell Technologies Capital, and GE Ventures.
