San-Francisco

Who we are

Identify3D was born in beautiful San Francisco in 2014. We are excited to see the 3D Printing Industry exploding in its growth and breadth of applications. With this growth we saw the need to better protect company’s unique designs and Additive Manufacturing assets. From this need Identify3D was born. We help protect the intellectual property of the original design from unauthorized distribution, transformation, replication and production. We also help the design retain its original quality by coupling production standards and manufacturing rules (machine, consumable, key set-up parameters) to the design that must be authorized and authenticated before production can occur. Lastly, we give companies the ability to have Additive Manufacturing give them actionable feedback through our in-depth analytics.
