Blueprint, an Additive Manufacturing consultancy owned by Stratasys, Rehovot, Israel, has launched a technology enablement programme titled ‘Think Additively’, in order to help businesses adopt Additive Manufacturing throughout their organisations. 

The company states that the programme is intended to look beyond technical Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) training and assist companies so that they can achieve larger transformation goals, such as creating innovation engines, accelerating go-to-market and improving manufacturing efficiency.

Think Additively will include on-site courses, individualised coaching, and additive accelerator workshops. The programme includes four components, which can be tailored to meet the customers’ needs:

  • Foundations: A three-day level-set on AM technologies, benefits and design principles to establish a common language
  • Additive coaching: A three-to-twelve month coaching engagement working with individuals to put the knowledge gained in Foundations into practice.
  • Growth engagements: Custom Additive Manufacturing acceleration workshops to identify and realise the business value of AM
  • Advanced courses: Deep dives into technical design disciplines, enabling advanced applications

According to Blueprint, in a recent study conducted by the AM consultancy, 85% of companies ranked knowledge as their biggest barrier to driving greater adoption of AM across their organisations. 

“Transforming manufacturing is more than buying a 3D printer, and thinking additively is more than Design for Additive Manufacturing,” stated Kunal Mehta, Head of Consulting at Blueprint. “Achieving strategic benefits like streamlined global supply chains or an improved new product development process requires communication across the organisation, and communication requires a shared language. Whether an organisation is early in additive adoption or mature, it is our aim to provide the knowledge and the language to achieve these transformational benefits.”
