While Manufacturing might be a $13 Trillion industry, almost all of it is built around the premise of Low Variety - High Volume production, also known as Mass Manufacturing. There remains a huge gap in the market for engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs who seek support for Prototyping and Low Volume Production of their ideas.
The Imaginarium Rapid Online Factory addresses this gap. It is an online platform that allows anyone to access services such as 3D Printing, Vacuum Casting, CNC Machining, Injection Molding and others from the convenience of their web browser - eliminating the need to identify and work with multiple vendors for each process or spend endless hours negotiating quotes and explaining requirements. The Online Factory also connects to your business directly via APIs, becoming a true on-demand manufacturing partner that scales as you do.
Users can upload and visualize 3D models in any file format to their Imaginarium Rapid Online Factory account. Next, they choose the processes, materials, finishes, and quantities that they require (no MOQs). Automated manufacturability checks provide instant feedback to the users and indicate areas where redesign might be required. They receive instant quotations based on their requirements, along with an estimate of timelines. The user then places an order and pays for their chosen designs - getting access to real-time tracking of the entire product journey.
The platform also plans to release APIs that provide this entire functionality as an automated integration into apps, websites and other businesses to become a true manufacturing partner to the world’s top innovative ideators.
