04 December 2023

London, December 2023: We are thrilled to announce that Varishapes is partnering with AMFG to implement our award-winning MES software and Instant Quote tool to rapidly respond to customers’ CNC and Additive Manufacturing needs.

Varishapes, a prominent Portuguese company, specializes in delivering on-demand industrial 3D printing and CNC services. Leveraging extensive expertise in FDM, SLA, and CAD design, Varishapes prioritizes exceptional service tailored to clients’ unique requirements, ensuring a seamless and rapid quoting process.

Varishapes operates through a streamlined workflow allowing customers to effortlessly upload their 3D models onto our versatile automatic quoting platform, supporting diverse file formats such as STL, STEP, 3MF, OBJ, and more. For those without a model, Varishapes offers personalized solutions tailored to individual requirements. Their comprehensive Guidelines for 3D printing serve as a valuable resource for optimal practices.

Recognizing the urgency in meeting client needs, Varishapes needed a solution to streamline their production process and to swiftly complete orders and provide quick quotes. Varishapes’ founder João Tomás Afonso stated “AMFG became the solution, revolutionizing our workflow and enhancing client interactions.”

Instead of manual collation that often consumes time and effort, AMFG’s Instant Quote tool employs advanced algorithms aligned with Varishapes’ existing quoting logic. This streamlined approach enhances Varishapes’ quoting capacity while maintaining the high quality of customer interactions. Varishapes seamlessly integrates its email system with the tool, enabling the swift transformation of email RFQs into quotes through our efficient ticket function.

Commenting on the partnership, João Tomás Afonso explained:
AMFG stood out as the all-in-one solution we needed for a streamlined and customer-friendly process. AMFG encompasses all the essential features for a front-facing app integration on our website. Its comprehensive capabilities not only enhance the user experience but also provide a seamless avenue for payments and order placement.

Distinguished by in-house production capabilities, Varishapes offers bespoke solutions, swift turnaround times, and an extensive range of materials and colors to meet diverse needs. This approach enables Varishapes to cater efficiently to each client’s specifications and ensures a superior level of service.

Upon upload, customers enjoy the freedom to choose printing technology, material, color, infill, and quantities, ensuring a customized experience. Varishapes specializes in handling a wide range of orders, from standard prints to intricate CNC machined parts, meeting diverse manufacturing needs.

Since its implementation, AMFG’s software has had instant benefits for Varishapes’ workflow and production processes. As João Tomás Afonso highlighted: “Our business has experienced a significant improvement in handling direct orders from clients. The streamlined process has not only enhanced efficiency but also allowed us to more effectively promote our services. Now, we can seamlessly manage client orders and efficiently market our offerings.

AMFG’s Technical Consultant, Robert Steele, commented on the successful partnership: Joao Tomas and the Varishapes team are front runners and early adopters of new technology. They produce high-quality parts and provide a high level of customization and options for 3d printing. Their workflow, quick production time, and great customer service will surely push them to be successful with AMFG.
