Zeiss Group, Oberkochen, Germany, and Siemens Energy, Munich, Germany, supported by venture capital fund 9.5 Ventures, have launched MakerVerse, a new digital platform for on-demand Additive Manufacturing services. The venture is expected to act as a one-stop fulfilment centre that will connect industrial clients to a global network of certified Additive Manufacturing suppliers.
MakerVerse offers instant quoting, automated manufacturability checks, streamlined supplier and quality management, and industrial-level quality assurance. The platform is intended to eventually cover the full technological service spectrum, starting with core AM technologies and expanding into further on-demand technologies such as CNC and Injection Moulding in the future.
MakerVerse will be based in Berlin, with its initial focus on the European market. The public launch of the platform is planned for early mid-2022.
