Endeavor 3D, a leading contract manufacturer of additive manufacturing, has entered a partnership with Materialise and HP to onboard the Materialise CO-AM software platform to bolster its HP 3D printer production capacity.

Endeavor 3D has a strong collaboration with HP, and integrating Materialise CO-AM enables us to offer a better experience for our customers,” said Janet Dickinson, Chief Operating Officer at Endeavor. “CO-AM software is the right tool for us to scale our business and achieve our efficiency initiatives in 2024, which includes a 20% increase in labor productivity and a 30% yield improvement.”

While many manufacturers continue to rely on email, spreadsheets, and whiteboards to run their 3D
printing production, Endeavor 3D recognizes these traditional methods are not scalable. In anticipation of the growing demand for 3D printed applications and the need to future-proof operations, the company has decided to digitally transform its processes by implementing the Materialise CO-AM software platform to power its fleet of HP Multi-Jet Fusion and Metal Jet 3D Printers. By doing so, Endeavor 3D will streamline its workflow, reduce manual touchpoints, and increase efficiency through automation – maximizing its production output and AM capacity.

The adoption of Materialise CO-AM software with HP 3D printers brings numerous benefits to Endeavor 3D. Incoming requests will be seamlessly stored in CO-AM’s order management system, ensuring efficient organization and data storage. Team members will receive automatic notifications about status changes, enabling them to provide quicker responses to customers. When orders are ready for production, files can be seamlessly launched into Materialise’s Magics 3D Print Software for data and build preparation by utilizing the Magics Nester module – allowing orders to be efficiently batched on build trays while significantly improving Endeavor 3D’s overall production output.

The CO-AM manufacturing execution system effectively manages all HP 3D printers on the shop floor – providing real-time sensor data status updates for remote monitoring and quality management. This integrated system also oversees critical processes such as post-processing, finishing, and quality control.

“We have multiple manufacturing and quality control processes, so this tool also enables us to aggregate them into a more seamless workflow,” said Dickinson “This update highlights Endeavor 3D’s investment in its quality control systems to ensure the highest quality output on behalf of our customers. Having a software platform that prioritizes qualification makes our overall production more efficient.”

“To scale additive manufacturing, the industry is in need of printers that are designed for high productivity coupled with an integrated end-to-end workflow solution that focuses on lowering the cost of additive parts in production while managing quality. The collaboration between HP and Materialise delivers this solution for Endeavor 3D,” said Arvind Rangarajan, Global Head of Software and Data at HP Personalization and 3D Printing. He added that a key factor driving industry growth is the willingness of industry players to collaborate and integrate with one another.

“This collaboration with Endeavor 3D and HP empowers us to drive industrial volume production with additive manufacturing,” said Udo Eberlein, VP of Software at Materialise. “The openness of the CO-AM software platform allows for deep integration with HP technology, which enables Endeavor 3D to optimize its production processes and build a strong foundation to scale as the company acquires more customers and expands its operations.”
