Feedback from The Pike company and American Additive

Who is the buyer?

The Pike Company is a mid-size commercial construction company, concentrating in the North East region (USA). We do a lot of work in retail, commercial, healthcare, housing, lot of work for college campuses. It is one of the largest family-owned businesses in the nation.

The nature of our department is building information modeling. We've used quite a few software that 3D models all the systems inside a building, and the 3D model is good. You can spin it on to know the TV and the monitor and have that actual physical object on the table.

Who is the manufacturer?

American Additive Manufacturing is a 3D Printing service provider just outside the Philadelphia area.

We 3D print everything from Flyway parts for the aerospace industry to jigs and fixtures for the automotive industry to prototypes for architecture. We span every industry.

How did they meet?

The Pike Company: "On the 3DEXPERIENCE Make, you can send to the 3D printing service, and that's where we found American Additive."

American Additive: "Our Business relationship with The Pike Company started via a notification from the 3DEXPERIENCE Make Marketplace that we had a pending transaction request."

Why does American Additive use 3DEXPERIENCE Make On-Demand manufacturing?

Very quickly, we can consult with customers and help them arrive at decisions that enable them to get their architectural models and prototypes:

- Having a pop right up on our computer screen

- Having them see what we're seeing, when being able to collaborate in real-time as we just completed this 3D building our object is a huge benefit. 

That ease of communication and a streamlined transaction ensures we're keeping a customer happy.

Why does The Pike Company think about the experience of 3DEXPERIENCE Make?

The user experience is highly user-friendly. It is simple enough for someone like me, who does not have a technical background in CAD Software, to communicate effectively with American Additive and my team.

American Additive could produce 3D Prints for us with the highest quality and fast turnaround time. 

What is the main benefit of 3DEXPERIENCE Make for American Additive?

The great thing is: "its universal language". Engineers from across the globe can communicate with each other through this platform. We've been able to interact with companies overseas that we previously would not have been exposed to.

The 3DEXPERIENCE Make Marketplace essentially bridges that gap, and we can communicate in the universal language of new mathematics and computer-aided design. Hence, it is a fantastic platform, and we are thrilled to be part of it. It becomes a key part of our plan for growth in the future.
