Deloitte and 3D Systems Corp. have forged an alliance to jointly provide companies with three-dimensional printing and manufacturing technologies designed to help customers sustain their business and expand capabilities.
3D System will integrate its products and services into Deloitte’s strategy, technology and consulting services to build a platform that will work to enable learning, experimentation and adoption using 3D printing, Deloitte said Thursday.
Marcus Shingles, Deloitte principal and innovation group lead, said the alliance aims to help customers gain benefits as early adopters and extend 3D printing across industries.
Deloitte and 3D Systems will establish labs in several sites to help mutual customers manage hardware and software, revamp processes, form organizations, integrate technology and retire old systems.
These facilities will also host corporate meetings intended to form strategies and roadmaps, Deloitte said.
