Born from the COVID-19 pandemic, Project DIAMOnD (Distributed Independent and Agile Manufacturing On Demand) will transform traditional supply chains and marketplace business models, creating a network that will manage itself and deliver benefit to all. It all begins by creating the country’s largest distributed 3D printing network operating a blockchain technology platform.
Project DIAMOnD manufacturers have the capabilities, expertise and support of the entire network to produce a variety of high-quality products. The network enables manufacturers to link together to fulfill larger orders at competitive prices with a diverse and flexible supply chain.
Project DIAMOnD has spurred the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies across Michigan’s manufacturing landscape, in a variety of industries. This has led to the largest open, distributed and decentralized marketplace in the country, with a focus on quality, efficiency, and flexibility.
Project DIAMOnD wouldn't be possible without the support of the following:
