​On-Demand Services with WAZP

Organizing the world’s 3D printing production and making it accessible and useful. Developing services for sustainable on-demand production close to the point and time of need.

Not just for some. But for everyone


On-Demand Service

01. Demand-Driven Sales
02. Digitalization of Products
03. Decentralization on Manufacturing
04. Direct to Consumer (D2C)
05. Sustainable Supply
01. Demand-Driven Sales


Demand-Driven Sales refer to the manufacture of products on-demand, after the sale of the product to the consumer, therefore only supplying the demanded or sold quantity of product without over or underproduction, with the ultimate goal of achieving the supply-demand equilibrium.


  • Turn the Sales Cycle Around - receive payment for the sold product before the product is manufactured and paid for.
  • Eliminate Physical Stock - no upfront investment into physical stock and stock management as the products in a digital format.
  • Reduce the Risk of Overproduction and Underproduction that result in unsold products, obsolete stock, and waste management costs or loss of potential revenue.
  • Control & Extend the Product Life Cycle as the unit cost is not affected by demand peaks and troughs, or physical stock inventory.
  • Reduction in Transportation Costs associated with bulk transport, stock warehousing and distribution.
02. Digitalization of Products


Digitization of Products refers to the process of creating new products or redesigning existing, tangible products into digital products to be manufactured into physical products on-demand. Meaning that the most valuable form of the product is in digital format rather than physical stock.


  • Enhanced Product Investment Management - invest in cost-effective product innovation & consumer-centric improvement, and purchase only what is needed or sold.
  • Unlimited Product Library - create a digital library of products that can be produced and sold at any time and any place.
  • Product Creativity & Flexibility - offer unique products that can be highly complex with market-specific adaptions.
  • Country of Origin - manufacture products in strategically selected locations as the products are digitalized right up to production.
  • Enhanced Speed to Market - quickly implement product iterations and respond to market demands, with fast production set up.

03. Decentralization on Manufacturing


Decentralization of Manufacturing refers to geographically dispersed, strategically placed manufacturing facilities, enabling on-demand production in response to demand-driven sales, therefore enabling higher supply chain responsiveness, agility, and increased consumer focus.


  • Business Future-Proofing by strengthening of the supply chain through de-risking, resilience and agility.
  • Be More Agile - respond to market demand daily, introduce new products to new markets quickly, stay ahead of the competition.
  • Be More Resilient to External Factors - adapt to market disruptors by quickly and easily moving production and modifying product portfolios.
  • Localized Manufacture - produce locally, support local jobs and gain value from the country-of-origin effect.
  • De-Risking of Manufacturing Centralization - reduce reliance on single manufacturing locations and external risks.
  • Reduce Costs associated with border tariffs and taxes, and transportation of physical stock.
04. Direct to Consumer (D2C)


Direct to Consumer or D2C refers to the sale of products through the retailer, online or placing an order in store, while the production and distribution of products to the consumer is carried out by the manufacturer after the sale of product.


  • Reduction of In-House Storage & Handling Costs as products are manufactured, finished, and shipped to the consumer directly
  • Maintain and Improve Company Requirements for shipping, packaging, and returns policies 
  • Free Up Resources to focus the business on its core competencies by allowing the manufacturer to fulfil orders
  • Shorten Delivery Times to customers by shipping the products ordered directly from the manufacturer
  • Reduce the Company’s Direct Carbon Footprint by utilizing digital inventory and D2C Fulfilment
05. Sustainable Supply


Sustainable Supply refers to the supply of products to the consumer with an economic, environmental, and societal sustainability focus, ensuring the products and processes are resource-efficient and environmentally-conscious.


  • Overproduction Waste Minimization through the supply & demand equilibrium targets.
  • Reduction in Carbon Footprint through nearshore production for individual markets.
  • Aim for Economic Sustainability through digitalization of products and IP management.
  • Weight and Material Optimized Design of Products.
  • Minimization in Physical Space requirements through reduction in warehousing and handling space.

The Standard Fulfilment Services


In this case we know everything about the file to be produced. We know its shape, size and how it should be finished. The unknown is the daily quantity. So orders need to be batched on a daily basis or with regular products we can build highly accurate predictions for sales quantities


In many ways this is very similar to On-Demand Direct but as the files are customised to the end-users exact requirements, be that fit or personal design preferences, we do not have the final version of the file until production is required and the customer has adapted and purchased their product. So while the production and finishing processes are defined and understood the exact file is not available until the moment production is required. This process adds complexity but provides huge value in customization - a key objective for many businesses and a defining factor of Industry 5.0. 


This fulfilment model allows customers to choose larger batch production with specific time frames e.g. the customer would need 50 parts in January or need 3,000 parts by December, or need 200 parts in Q3 and 500 parts in Q4. This model allows business to order as the need and based on real sales without huge investments in stock. Additionally, this model supports the fulfilment of sub-components for assembly with non-additive parts produced outside of WAZP. 

What Does This Mean?

While each of these models has its own unique benefits and advantages, they all have efficiency of fulfilment and cost in mind while allowing brands to augment and improve the design element of their product. These models also allow for market based or individual based product customisation - vary product by market or by individual to maximise the customers experience and the brands ability to meet their customers unique requirements.                                                                                                                                         

Furthermore, these models allow business to test products and markets with unique solutions without the need for huge investments in traditional supply chain models or stock - further reducing the risk associated with product sales while increasing product appeal.

As these products are produced On-Demand and are based on real sales, this has a major impact on sustainability - we only produce what we need when we need it with only exactly the amount material and energy required - no waste.
