Defining the challenge and exploring concepts

Our team will explore with you the vision and challenges to tackle through our requirement analysis workshops to ensure we are answering the right questions. After analysing the challenges, your clients’ needs and your competitors solutions, we will explore together different concepts through sketching of the solutions.

Your product Designed with finesse

After defining the sketched solutions that are better aligned with your vision and that accurately solve the challenges, we will separately develop and prototype each critical feature (joints, fittings, ergonomics, finishing, etc.) of your product and iterate very quickly for a fast, accurate, lean experience. Only after validating each component, will we move to integrate every critical feature with the non-critical ones and deliver your dream product. The Product Design will be validated by you with user friendly software that allows you to visualize, interact and analyse the characteristics of the design remotely and as soon as you are happy with the results, our team will manufacture a physical prototype that replicates the product experience for you and other stakeholders to test and ensure a rewarding user experience.

Product is an Experience

Nothing gives more confidence to your distributors, investors, and relevant stakeholders like a physical product just like the one to me manufactured in scale. This is the reason why we have every 3D Printing technology in-house and have been working for years to perfect the post-processing of 3D Printed products to give them the look and feel of a final product. 3D Printed products in resins, polymers and metals are great but in many cases the prototype for PoC and Certifications must be manufactured with traditional methods such as sheet metal laser cutting, bending, soldering, etc. Leveraging our manufacturing network we are able not only to prototype these components but we are able to prototype them leveraging more than 40 manufacturing technologies and every material available.

Prototyping

Iterate fast, validate faster
  • 438K 3D Printing hours
  • 9 Prototyping Technologies
  • 29 In-House Machines

What is included with Prototyping

Final, high quality, functional prototypes.
  • Physical Prototypes

    Prototypes in polymer, resin, metal and wood
  • Technology Integration

    Selection and integration of the various prototyping technologies
  • Finishing

    Finishing of prototypes to make them look just like the final product

Rapid Prototyping

Our in-house prototyping facility equipped with FDM, SLA, DLP, SLS, PBF and DED Additive Manufacturing (Plastics, Resins and Metals) combined with Laser Cutting (Woods, Cloths, Corks and Acrylics) allows the fast manufacturing of your prototypes and low-series batches (1-50 units). As part of the technical commission for Additive Manufacturing (regulating norms and certifications for “3D Printing”) we make sure your parts will be manufactured with the highest quality standards.

Minimum Viable Product

A minimum-viable-product (MVP) integrates both off-the-shelf components such as electronics, springs, nuts and bolts with prototyped mechanical components to create a product that is a viable test of the functionality for the final product. This interactive prototype is created with the minimum budget to test all the hypothesis, get feedback from relevant stakeholders and refine the product early-on. This saves you time, money end gives the stakeholders confidence to adopt your solution from the start.

Supply Chain Management

For every production, there is an ideal machine
  • 312 Partner Factories
  • 43 Manufacturing Technologies
  • 498 Products Industrialized

What is included with Supply Chain Management

Your Products, on time, on budget. You only deal with branding, and sales.
  • Material Selection

    Materials Analysis and Selection based on your requirements
  • Sourcing

    Electronic and Mechanical Component Sourcing
  • Process Selection

    Manufacturing Process Selection for optimized production
  • Supply Chain Management

    We manage the whole supply chain, ensuring deadlines and the quality of the manufactured products meet the targets
  • Decentralization

    Production Decentralization, lowering dependency on suppliers and leveraging near-shore production
  • Assembly and QA

    Product Assembly and Quality Assurance that ensures 100% sattisfaction

Electronic and Mechanical Part Sourcing

Your product most of the times contains off-the-shelf components that will have direct impact on the cost and performance of your solution. Identifying these components and the suppliers that are reliable and cost-efficient is a task that relies on experience, a reliable network and know-how. By sourcing components to many of our clients we are constantly in contact with various suppliers and auditing new ones. That is why we are able to source this components globally for you and give you early pricing estimates for the various components, saving you time and money.

Material Selection

Your product will always have a number of specifications that range from high temperature resistance to UV resistance, from passing CE certification to low weight. From the thousands of metal, polymer, ceramic and composite materials available today, choosing that ones that best suit your requirements demands extensive knowledge on materials engineering, mechanical engineering and manufacturing. Our team, partnering with certification agencies, laboratories and universities, will analyse your requirements, identify the suitable materials, test them, and give you actionable insights to make a smart decision that will impact the functionality and cost of your product.

Supply Chain Management

Most of the companies are all replicating the effort to find and audit the factories to manufacture their products. That task is inefficient and ineffective from the start. Not only they don’t have the means to audit 300 factories but they are most likely not auditing each machine in each factory. That means that you are choosing a key partner that will have a high impact on the success of your product based on a few references and few KPI’s. For years 3DWays has been collecting and analysing data on each machine in each factory, their specifications, advantages and disadvantages. By mapping out the industrial machines all over the world, we provide you products (not reports), manufactured in the optimal machine, located at the optimal country for each stage of the product’s lifecycle.

Quality Assurance

Challenges will always happen and defected parts will always be manufactured for a multitude of reasons that range from machine malfunction to human error or both. The Lean Manufacturing processes leveraged by 3DWays make sure that the defects are detected soon and reduce or eliminate the impact of that defect on the production timeline. All our partner factories are supplied with high quality product models and drawings, quality assurance documentation to fallow, and test jigs and fixtures to accelerate the quality assurance process of your product thus reducing the defect rates and their impact on production timelines.
