3YOURMIND and Phillips Corp. Federal Division have partnered with Marine Corps System Command’s Advanced Manufacturing Operations Cell (AMOC) to enrich its digital additive manufacturing capabilities.

The Digital Manufacturing Data Vault (DMDV) is a centralized digital repository for the Marine Corps to host data and design solutions, which is critical for AMOC to scale up its existing AM operations. Integrating 3YOURMIND’s part identification software with DMDV will enhance warfighter efforts to approve spare parts and components for field use. The effort is part of a larger mission by the Department of Defense to reshore supply chains, create distributed manufacturing networks, and sustain legacy equipment using additive technologies.

The $2.5 million AMOC award follows the completion of a first-year contract with 3YOURMIND and Phillips Corp. Federal Division. In its first year, the initiative completed several key operational milestones, including validating 3YOURMIND’s part identification capabilities by screening over 10,000 parts and demonstrating connectivity to other software systems utilized by the DMDV. The custom-developed algorithm for the project focuses on 12 key impact factors, which indicate the printability and created value of 3D printing per component. From the first 10,000 parts analyzed based on priority and printability, 50 parts were identified with at least a potential 1,000 days of lead time savings per component.

In year two, the initiative will expand on these milestones and further configure 3YOURMIND software with proprietary and third-party systems like PTC Windchill, used by DMDV. AMOC will also onboard capabilities to perform 2D drawing analysis to quickly bulk analyze technical data packages for compelling AM use cases.

The AMOC award is preceded by 3YOURMIND and Phillips Corp. Federal Division’s existing partnership with the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific. In its work with NIWC, 3YOURMIND, and Phillips Corp. Federal Division offer technical expertise in software and hardware to develop a seamless, digital production workflow that enables distributed manufacturing. As a result of the partnership with NIWC, AMOC also gains access to 3YOURMIND’s order and production management software capabilities.

“Although additive manufacturing is well-known for cutting-edge innovations, I am encouraged by our work with AMOC and Phillips Corp. to enable the Marine Corps. to use additive to address more common technology and spare parts gaps,” said William Cuervo, Vice President of Sales, North America, at 3YOURMIND. “I am very excited for the opportunity for 3YOURMIND and Phillips Corp. Federal Division to enrich the quality of life of the warfighter by addressing these capability gaps and contribute to the operational readiness that the US Marine Corps prides itself on.”
