Two South Carolina-based companies are partnering up for the purposes of speeding production processes. Digital manufacturing technology company ZVerse, Inc. has developed the a CAD as a Service (CADaaS) platform for digital manufacturing, and works to help other manufacturers and OEMs in “bridging the design gap,” as its website states, by offering its AI-enabled, on-demand ZVerse360 platform. Now, TPM, Inc., a provider of 2D and 3D design technology across the Southeast United States, will be increasing its digital production processes with ZVerse360.

“For more than 45 years, we have been all about helping our customers move from idea to reality in the fastest, most efficient way possible. In addition to TPM’s extensive professional services and technology offerings, this partnership with ZVerse adds even more innovation and resources to drive operational efficiencies for both our customers and us. It allows us all to reach a new level of digital transformation through use of the instant quoting tool and the automated workflow management,” stated TPM President Chris Fay in a press release.

TPM, which serves 3,500 customers every year, is joining a long list of other ZVerse partners in the AM industry, including Xometry, PlanGrid, Forecast 3D, Shapeways, and more. Now that it’s licensing the proprietary on-demand ZVerse360 platform, the company will run its production through the on-demand manufacturing platform, which will allow it to complete customer projects through its in-house production group.

ZVerse360 offers companies an end-to-end solution for on-demand digital manufacturing, which aims to make the design-to-production process faster and easier. The platform provides ZVerse partners, such as TPM, offerings like access to its production partner network, instant quoting and e-commerce, and workflow management.

“TPM is an innovator in digital manufacturing and they are using ZVerse360 strategically as the foundational platform to better manage their digital manufacturing business and drive efficiencies. Through this partnership, our CAD as a Service platform enables TPM’s customers who need a 3D file, or need one optimized. It applies our expert design network and AI enabled technology to meet their needs in a quick and seamless way,” said John Carrington, the Founder and CEO of ZVerse.

Partners have the ability to configure the ZVerse360 platform so that it complements their specific business needs and processes, and can even access the ZVerse network of production partners, which includes specialists in sheet metal manufacturing, injection molding, CNC machining, and 3D printing.

“Our customers face obstacles and roadblocks as they go to one vendor for design services and to another for manufacturing,” Fay explained. “For us to now be able to provide customers with 3D design services on top of other consulting, training and implementation services, simplifies and accelerates their route to production. We support our customers with a complete solution by eliminating the need to source design services externally.”

Additionally, TPM will also be leveraging the ZVerse CADaas design network, which connects 3D artists globally to jobs specific to their given skills.
