How We Help You Invest in 3D Printing

3DP Journey

You’re smart. You’re savvy. And you know that innovative additive technology will give your business a competitive edge. It’s time to invest in a 3D printer. But where to begin? The journey towards making an additive investment has three essential components, and DesignPoint is here to help with every one of them.

1. Discover

First up: the Discover stage. You’ve noticed that the 3D printing buzz is getting louder and louder. Perhaps you’re intrigued by the problems it can potentially solve for your business. The problem is…there’s so much information! How do you even get started when there are so many types of brands and styles? Don’t get overwhelmed. Get help. DesignPoint knows everything about 3D printing. As leading experts in the field, we are well versed on all your options, including ones we don’t offer. We make it our job to know and to educate you. Maybe it means providing you with the right digital assets (spec sheets, infographics, webinars, and the like) or maybe it means allowing you the opportunity to see 3D printed parts and printers up close. We make sure you feel confident in your knowledge of the 3D printing industry, taking the time to have a conversation with you about where it’s been and where it’s going. Once you’ve discovered all that 3D printing has to offer, it’s time to evaluate which products will bring the most ROI for your business.

2. Evaluate

You’ve got the 3D printing big picture under your belt. Now you’re ready to truly make a distinction between the different additive options. This is where your journey gets personal. What can it do for me? How will this investment affect my bottom line? I see this product can solve problem X, but what about problem Y? And what questions am I NOT asking that I SHOULD be? Because, let’s face it: you don’t know what you don’t know. This is where DesignPoint can help. Besides a needs meeting where we define your priorities, we walk your shop floor to get you to see an understand the applications where additive can take your business to new heights. Again, you don’t know what you don’t know—and that application discovery in your shop floor is usually both an eye-opener, and a game changer. We fully evaluate what your needs are now AND in the future, partnering with you to make the right choice for your business. Your 3D printing journey can continue with confidence, knowing you’re about to make the right investment.

3. Select

You’ve made your choice. You feel confident about your selected product and the proposed ROI. You’re thrilled. Your peers are excited. Perhaps your customers are even enthusiastic about what this investment means for them. Yet there is still a lot to do. Is your shop floor ready to receive your new 3D printer by the delivery date? What modifications need to be made? Whether you’re clearing off a counter top or building out a new space for your 3D printer, DesignPoint works with all members of your team to get what you need, when you need it…but we don’t stop there…
