Parts Assessment for Additive Suitability

Is Additive Your Best Option?

3Diligent strategy consulting leverages 3Diligent’s five years of project work to provide parts assessment for additive suitability. Our deep analytical background allows for assessment of whether the economics of manufacturing additively makes sense.

While additive manufacturing can be used to manufacture just about anything, is it the best tool to accomplish the task at hand? In reality the answer is no—the vast majority of the time—at least insofar as you seek to transfer a current design directly from a traditional process to an additive process.


One of the biggest challenges in the world of additive manufacturing is identifying instances when and where 3D printing is not only a viable technology, but the preferred technology for the application. Very few parts designed for other processes will crossover seamlessly to a superior additive-manufacturing process. Occasions do exist, however, and with additional design for manufacturing, the universe of these parts dramatically expands.
The 3Diligent Parts Assessment for Additive Suitability project type addresses this exact issue. Relying on the massive database of material and machine options provided by 3Diligent Manufacturing, we can provide robust assessments of existing part libraries and sift through hundreds of thousands of parts to arrive at candidates truly worth prioritizing for potential transition into additive.
