When 3YOURMIND was founded 2014, the goal was to provide widespread access to additive manufacturing. They added enterprise customers like Siemens Energy, DB and Volkswagen in the first years. This allowed them to directly tap the needs of enterprise production and build a software that is prepared for the future of manufacturing. As of 2020, the Agile Manufacturing Software Suite provides modules that optimize AM workflows along the entire value chain. This provides their customers with transparency and scale to help the entire industry.
But the goal is larger, the goal is control and automation. This is why the 3YOURMIND team participates in workgroups around the globe to define standards for additive manufacturing and build software that can serve as the manufacturing infrastructure. 3YOURMIND is moving the world towards Agile Manufacturing.
