Machine Research: your source for on-demand knowledge and manufacturing excellence.

3D printing is a hot topic in manufacturing these days. However, the market is relatively young, and that means fragmented, vertically integrated systems and proprietary solutions. It also means costly hardware and software. Demand for 3D-printed products is projected to increase significantly, as is the number of 3D print shops. Machine Research provides a set of cloud 3D printing CAD applications that make each step of your internal process more efficient and your shop more profitable.

The Problem

RFQs come in by phone, email or web, accompanied by 3D CAD models, files and documents not easily viewable without expensive CAD platform licenses or 3D CAM platform translator add-ons. It’s technology and budget overkill for sales, business development, program management, and front-office staff who currently rely on assistance from others to do their job properly and efficiently.

Quoting is based on “tribal knowledge” and typically resides in the heads of a select few within the company. It is largely done with spreadsheets or ERP systems that do not contain enough intelligence to assist the process. One of your most valuable assets is the knowledge of past projects. But how do you know if you’ve done a similar project in the past, and whether it was profitable?

Machine Research unlocks your knowledge.
