EOS North America and 3YOURMIND Launch Rapid Part Identifier Program


Novi, Michigan, August 24, 2023 – EOS North America’s Additive Minds applied engineering team and 3YOURMIND have partnered to accelerate additive manufacturing (AM) adoption through their Rapid Part Identifier program. Now, organizations can benefit from rapid part screening of 2D and 3D files, augmented by AM engineering expertise to create a holistic industrial 3D printing strategy. This new partnership agreement helps quickly scale part identification for AM, supported by the strategy and engineering required to achieve successful production.


“We are providing a path for organizations to leave the whiteboard and Excel spreadsheet world by creating a faster, more professional approach to building a digital parts warehouse ready for AM production,” said Fabian Alefeld, senior manager, Additive Minds. “We partnered with 3YOURMIND to help unlock AM’s potential by eliminating what historically required months of analysis, and quickly generate business cases for on-demand, highly engineered applications.”



Historically, AM part screening involved combing through customer part libraries – a time-consuming process that required analysis of individual applications to identify which parts or assemblies were viable candidates for 3D printing. Additive Minds pioneered an AM part screening methodology and collaborative processes needed to scale production. 3YOURMIND software further accelerate this process, and the two organizations worked to jointly develop the Rapid Part Identifier software solution by:

✔ Leveraging EOS data to improve the 3YOURMIND algorithm and more accurately predict costs and application printability
✔ Increasing the speed of part screening for customers with large, traditionally manufactured application inventory
✔ Providing end users with comparative digital inventory of uploaded and evaluated parts to make data-driven decisions based on results

3YOURMIND’s solutions also include part qualification, order management, and production scheduling features. In the end, customers can explore practical AM applications, make quicker decisions, and gain a higher level of success for their AM program by quickly scanning existing parts in their inventories, and determining a better-defined AM business case.

”EOS has always been a strong supporter of 3YOURMIND and our vision of streamlined, intuitive additive manufacturing workflows,” says Aleksander Ciszek, co-founder and CEO of 3YOURMIND. “By collaborating with Additive Minds, we look forward to showcasing to EOS customers how simple additive manufacturing can be when it's backed by strong part business cases from day one.”
