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.

Recently Sanjay Gangal interviewed Oleg Zykov, CEO of C3D Labs at MCADCafe headquarters.
SG: Tell us about C3D Labs, when did the company get started?
OZ: C3D is a part of Ascon Group – a large CAD and PDM developer based in Russia. We're celebrating 30 years in the market as a software component provider. Initially, it was a company that developed 2D CAD software, but in 1995 our founders made a decision to develop 3D software, as well. The 3D software is based on our own kernel so, our 3D product is more than 20 years old and continuing to mature. Six years ago, a separate company, C3D Labs, was established to develop and to promote the kernel outside of Ascon Group to independent software vendors that encompass many vertical industries.

Sanjay Gangal interviewed Donald Dorsey, Business Development Manager, GibbsCAM, 3D systems at the 2019 SOLIDWORKS World Conference in Dallas, Texas.
SG: Tell us a little bit about GibbsCAM.
DD: GibbsCAM was one of the early CNC programming packages that came out in the modern age of CNC programming. We’ve been in the market for well over 35 years, we’ve always taken our approach of – we’re gonna look at the parts the way the machinist is gonna look at it. We want to look at it like a machinist would program a part and we’ve developed our software and our interface to take advantage of that, so we’re very friendly to the machinist environment so they know how to program the parts.
