The 3DNFC White Paper

3DNFC.com delivers Smart additive manufacturing solutions tailored to your small business needs that will exceed expectations and meet your budget.

How does it work?

Additive manufacturing is the process of creating an object by building it one layer at a time. Additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing, makes it easier to create small quantities of an item, with high quality, the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs, and small or growing businesses.

Who’s it for?

The advantages of additive manufacturing are vast, with traditional manufacturing, setup costs mean producing small quantities is not cost-effective. In comparison, additive manufacturing setup costs are minimal, so creating just a handful of objects becomes more reasonable.
Without the setup costs of creating a new product, entrepreneurs and start-ups can quickly manufacture objects, parts, and solutions to see if they work as needed. If they don’t, they can iterate and try again, all using additive manufacturing, until they find a product that does.


Why do I need it?

The technology is clean and eco-friendly, and 3D prints equipped with an NFC (Near Field Communication) chip easily become an affordable, smart, contactless retail solution that allows you to deliver the additional information that can motivate buyers to act. 3D Printing and NFC together bring the benefits of digital marketing to physical objects, products, and packages.

  • NFC delivers intuitive experiences to digital native and mobile-first shoppers
  • NFC addresses consumer preference for speed, convenience, and control
  • NFC enables a personalized digital experience unique to each unit of product
  • NFC integrates easily into every step of the consumer journey/customer experience

What can it do for me?

From healthcare to consumer goods, architecture, and manufacturing, the public is interacting more and more with the end products of 3D printing and Near Field Communication technology. The power of 3D printing and NFC can often work best when embedded in consumer products and interactive displays – creating an authentic connection between brands and customers. For retailers, this connection can be leveraged throughout the entire customer journey, from pre-purchase to post-purchase.

Where else is 3D printing and NFC being used?

Companies like NIKE and Adidas are already using additive manufacturing to create sneaker soles suitable for mass customization. Sneaker giant Adidas has been on the cutting edge of NFC Technology since 2013, embedding it’s Boost running shoes, enabling shoppers with an NFC capable phone to tap it for detailed product information and to see reviews.

The takeaway

Businesses should evaluate whether additive manufacturing and Near Field Communication can be part of their business models. If a company produces products that are specialized or would benefit from the ability to have complex solutions simplified, it will have to determine whether additive manufacturing and NFC would improve its products and brand.
