Member Since: 2015

PDA being a small company, America Makes has provided the networking opportunity for contract research in the areas of design, modeling and simulation, partening with academia and large OEMs and have provided the metal casting and process simulation domain expertise and experience of over 25 years. -- Jiten Shah, President, Product Development & Analysis (PDA) LLC

Company Background:

PDA provides design and manufacturing solutions for any new product development, redesign for additive manufacturing process and reverse engineering of complex metal cast components made out of various alloys using state of the art process modeling, virtual validations using FEA, CFD and CAE tools and experience of over 25 years in military, transportation and general engineering. PDA supports 3D Printed sand as well as direct metal printing processes of additive mfg and provides contract manufacturing and research as an SME.

Initiatives in Additive Manufacturing:

  • Member of AM4MC Adoption Foundry team, providing design and simulation support to the YBI/AFS/UNI led project team;
  • Assisted to develop a course and a workshop for AM4MC working with AFS for the workforce development;
  • Shown value of casting process modeling and simulation for toolingless 3D printed sand metal casting process;
  • Provided casting process and rigging design and validations to provide added assurance to get it right the first time;
  • Leveraged experience of being member with active projects with other Manufacturing Innovation Institutes - DMDII and LIFT

re:3D first engaged with America Makes through a grant the company supported on metal printing through Michigan Technological University. This was re:3D's first exposure to additive manufacturing grants and America Makes. Since accomplishing America Makes membership last summer, re:3D has also benefited from access to technical reports, industry reports, project updates and the Wholer's report. -- Samantha Snabes, Catalyst, re:3D Inc

Company Background:

re:3D Inc.® is a Texas-based startup pushing the limits of 3D printing. Their flagship hardware product, the Gigabot®, starts at a 2ft cubed build volume for under $9000. Founded in 2013, re:3D is a full service 3D printing company offering contract print, consulting, and custom large-scale 3D printing solutions.

Initiatives in Additive Manufacturing:

re:3D is relentlessly committed to driving social change through accessible 3D printing. The Company creates impact by decimating the cost & scale barriers in additive manufacturing. Their flagship technology, the Gigabot, is cost/scale the most affordable large – scale 3D printer on the market. Now, they are pioneering a solution to enable Gigabot to 3D print from plastic waste using direct drive pellet extrusion.

In addition to evolving 3D printing hardware, re:3D donates 1 Gigabot for every 100 sales to someone trying to make a difference in their community through 3D printing. All of these efforts are accomplished with dirty fingers in the United States using a bootstrapped business model.
