EASY3D: Arkema presents new online platform for on-demand additive manufacturing

Arkema introduces the new EASY3D online platform. The platform allows users to select the ideal 3D printing material based on a proprietary algorithmic selection tool and order parts online from Arkema’s trusted suppliers.

Arkema is a leading provider of advanced sustainable materials for additive manufacturing. The new platform combines materials and cloud-based software expertise to provide easy access to a global supplier network for on-demand 3D printing. Some of the integrated suppliers are members of the HP Digital Manufacturing Network and the EOS Contract Manufacturing Network, certified by HP and EOS, respectively, the world’s leading providers of industrial 3D printing solutions.

High-performance materials include leading Arkema product lines: bio-based Rilsan polyamide 11, Pebax thermoplastic elastomers, Kynar PVDF and Kepstan PEKK. The list of materials is expected to expand.

The platform is free to access and the steps are simple:

  • Users securely upload their part information
  • The tool selects the optimal material and provides a printability analysis
  • Customers generate a real-time price quote and confirm the order to the selected parts manufacturer.

Benefits of this user-friendly online platform include:

  • Faster identification and qualification of parts for additive manufacturing applications.
  • Shorter time between order and production through automated price quotes
  • A central communication channel to improve visibility and share production and shipping updates

The new “Easy3D” platform, developed by Arkema in collaboration with 3YourMind, a specialist in on-demand software, is designed to enable parts manufacturers to accelerate on-demand production in an optimized ecosystem.

“Our mission is to facilitate the easy adoption of end- to-end 3D printing technology with advanced and bio-circular materials. Easy3D is a new milestone that will provide end users with digital access to our expertise in advanced materials for 3D printing as well as an optimized supply chain option,” said Adrien Lapeyre, Arkema 3D Printing Group program director.

“Arkema’s mission is to open up and unlock additive manufacturing possibilities thanks to a large portfolio of high-end materials”, says 3YOURMIND managing director Bas de Jong. “This portfolio, coupled with 3YOURMIND’s algorithms, empowers engineers to determine which material is best suited for their application and order the part needed from a network of qualified suppliers in just a few clicks.”
