Additive Manufacturing

Partnerships

Our goal is to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing and help accelerate the adoption of 3D printing, creating brighter lives for all through sustainable high-performance materials, experienced people with knowledge of applications and 3D printing processes. To truly accelerate adoption, we are creating an ecosystem by partnering with printer manufacturers, material companies, service bureaus, software providers and end users/Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), as well as embracing new business models where opportunities arise. Learn more about some of our partners.

Adaptive 3D

Adaptive3D’s Soft ToughRubber™, a new 3D printable photopolymer, and Elastic ToughRubber™ are developed by Adaptive3D and commercialized by DSM.

AMT

Together, DSM and AMT will focus efforts on solutions that include DSM’s filament and powder materials and AMT’s post-processing technology.

BAC

Both DSM and BAC are convinced that integrating 3D printing in car manufacturing will allow for the creation of parts that are lighter, stronger and customizable to customer needs. Together, the companies are co-developing innovative 3D printed applications for the BAC Mono R supercar.

CEAD

DSM and CEAD Group are co-developing fused granulate fabrication materials and exploring the potential of this technology for various industries. Along with Royal HaskoningDHV, CEAD Group and DSM designed the first lightweight 3D printed FRP pedestrian bridge prototype using a composite material, leading a revolution in bridge construction and design.

CHG

CHG and DSM are working to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing through TriCollective, a 3D printer leasing program. Through TriCollective, CHG and DSM remove potential financial and knowledge barriers, enabling the growth of sustainable design and the digital manufacturing process.

Chromatic

Chromatic and DSM are expanding thermoset materials for 3D printing of finished manufactured goods, offering adaptability, durability and resilience not possible with thermoplastics used in conventional 3D printing processes. Along with German RepRap, the three partners will ensure manufacturers across a range of industries will have access to the resources and expertise needed to print using Chromatic’s line of polyurethane materials. 

Hexagon/e-Xstream

The combination of DSM’s high-performance additive manufacturing grades with e-Xstream engineering’s (part of Hexagon) accurate printing process simulation solution allows manufacturers and end users to identify potential design and manufacturing issues before printing their application. This prevents wasted materials and time, plus saves on overall cost, avoiding rounds of trial and error.

German RepRap

In partnership with DSM and Chromatic, German RepRap will make its printing equipment and expertise accessible to manufacturers who opt to use Chromatic's line of flexible, high-performance polyurethane elastomer materials. 

JuggerBot 3D

JuggerBot 3D and DSM offer a trial program for companies to evaluate engineering grade materials in an industrial-grade filament printer without the upfront investment in hardware. Along with BDI Additive, the three companies also completed an end-of-arm tooling case study.

Origin

Origin and DSM are working together to optimize DSM’s unique photopolymer materials for Origin’s ‘programmable photopolymerization’ (P3) technology. The first DSM material optimized for Origin’s printer is Somos® PerFORM HW. 

Royal HaskoningDHV

Royal HaskoningDHV, an independent international engineering and project management consultancy, worked with CEAD Group and DSM to design the first lightweight 3D-printed FRP pedestrian bridge prototype. The companies are shaping the future of bridges, from design and construction to maintenance and operation, enabling higher performance, improved sustainability, greater circularity, reduced time-to-market and a longer lifecycle. 

Stratasys

As part of its alliance with DSM, Stratasys offers customers recipes for Somos® stereolithography resins, commercially available directly from the company. Together, the companies aim to expand the choice for customers to meet application performance demands.

Twikit

DSM and Twikit are co-developing new 3D printed solutions for medical, automotive, and apparel applications, plus currently working on an end-to-end production workflow for 3D printed orthotics and prosthetics.

Ultimaker

Combining DSM’s materials knowledge with Ultimaker’s insights gives end users access to a broader scope of professional applications and allows the ability to print with the Ultimaker Cura using preconfigured settings. Additionally, in collaboration with DSM and Twikit, Ultimaker printers are part of an end-to-end solution, printing customized orthotics and prosthetics.
