We recently had the opportunity to interview interviews Joe Inkenbrandt, CEO and co-founder of Identify3D. The company’s stated mission is to provide its customers with software solutions that address their security, IP, quality, authenticity, and traceability needs. Identify3D’s product suite encrypts, distributes, and traces the digital flow of parts, preventing counterfeits and ensuring that maliciously modified, substandard, or uncertified parts cannot enter the physical supply chain.
Sanjay Gangal: Can you provide some background information on Identify3D?
Joe Inkenbrandt: Identify3D is a software company dedicated to enabling digital distributed manufacturing, so we want to enable a world where when a customer orders a part, especially a high-value, high-precision part, that they can trust. Through a database of digital recipes, they can then have it manufactured on-demand. When the customer receives the part, he's very happy, but you've now eliminated a big, huge problematic physical supply chain, and so we dedicate our software to enabling that world.
