How to discover the competitive advantage of 3D Printing

Most industrial companies are still unaware of 3D printing and its potential for their business. Others have some ideas but lack the time or resource to assess the short and long-term impacts of 3D printing.

Building on 15 years of experience Berenschot offers online and offline options to assess the impact of 3D-printing for your organization and value chain.

The Berenschot Business Impact Model (BIM) gives rapid insights into the market opportunities, production efficiencies and value chain benefits of 3D printing. At three different levels of detail.

  1. Compare 3D and traditional parts prices online

Use the online cost assessment to get an indicative cost price of a 3D printed part compared to a traditionally manufactured part. Enter your part details into the BIM tool for an automatic price indication for the 3D part plus some valuable background information on 3D printing. This quick cost assessment is free of charge.
