Who We Are
3D Innovate Print * Design * Tech Lab is a company that will strive to excel in the business of
Industrial Additive Manufacturing, establishing cloud-based services along with a facility to setup
a design/innovation/creation hub. This will not only utilize 3D printing as a manufacturing
technology for prototyping, but will also take into consideration the longer-term impact based on
its use for manufacturing finished products. This takes advantage of shifts, in internal and
external value chains which will unfold over a long period of time, that may involve decades, so
that ultimately, 3D printing might carry businesses beyond the purely digital world. What makes
3D Innovate Print * Design * Tech Lab different and special is that, we recognize the need that
exist in this untapped location, the potential partnerships waiting to be explored, and the versatility
of Industrial Additive Manufacturing that can be applied to virtually every industry. Also, it’s
gradual, long-term transformation of internal and external value chains that span design,
manufacturing, usage and service. The company will be headquartered in Colorado Springs,
Colorado. Its operations will expand nationally and internationally.
The inspiration for the company was the founder’s realization, that for years his father has
experienced pain, in his knees and hip, from injuries sustained during combat operations, in
Vietnam, and was therefore considering the possibility of having multiple joint replacement
surgeries. Being a former Marine, and now at 100% disability, the VA would cover the cost of
these procedures. However, for most individuals with average health insurance plans, these
procedures are not feasible, due to the high cost of not only the procedures themselves, but the cost
of the replacement part. So, they are having to deal with the financial drain, but also the stress,
daily pain and discomfort, of having to wait. We believe, that by partnering with the major health
& medical facilities and professionals, throughout the Front Range and the US, and with
organizations such as, the VA, Children’s hospitals, and Wounded Warrior’s program, we will be
able to develop and offer, lighter, stronger replacement implants and prosthetics, at a much lower

Through strong, dedicated sales & consultation initiatives, we will provide independent,
technology-agnostic guidance to leading brands and manufacturing organizations who need to
understand, evaluate & embed 3D printing and additive manufacturing into their production
business (today & tomorrow).
Our CEO will set core values in our partnerships & services through six fundamental drivers to
AM / Industrial 3D Printing adoption:
1. Economic Low Volume Production
2. Increased Product Complexity (Geometric)
3. Cost Effective Product Personalization
4. Improved Environmental Sustainability
5. Optimized Supply Chains and Retail Models
6. Increased Part Functionality
The money required getting the company organized and structured has been provided by James
Garmon. To make this company a reality, there will be an amount needed of $500,000.00.
James Garmon is providing $5,000, leaving a balance of $495,000, which will come from investors
and SBA or other loans.
The $500,000 is the complete amount needed to open and operate this business for a 12-month
period. The money will be allocated to take care of the following requirements:
$275,000 for salaries and payroll taxes
$100,000 for equipment and training
$70,200 for miscellaneous operating expenses, insurance and El Paso Co. bond
$50,000 for location lease
$10,000 for marketing
$2,500 for legal/administrative fees
$1,800 for accounting.
A message from JE Garmon;
It’s an exciting & profitable time for Additive Manufacturing. Today, the industry is putting production
parts on commercial aircraft. Within 10 years,every commercial airplane will have 3D printed parts on it.
That’s just one example that you can apply across a multitude of industries – medical, energy, military,
automotive, etc. The magnitude of change 3D printing will bring, and has already brought, is powerful.
3D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing: It’s literally changing how products are being
manufactured-ed. To get a more complete sense of 3D printing’s imminent impact on manufacturing we
needed to look beyond our factory walls. As a potential investor, please ask yourself: How will we utilize
3D printing over the next three years? What will be the greatest benefits and challenges to 3D printing
adoption? What is the business value? How will product development evolve? Who will invest in owning
the technology and what role will service providers play? And of course, what will be your ROI?
Stats reported in, Ernst & Young Global 3D Printing Report 2016, show that the 3D printing market will
continue its stratospheric rise and the market will expand by 25% each and every year until 2020. To
compile the report, the company surveyed more than 900 decision makers in 12 countries and nine
industries, covering both mature and emerging markets. It also studied the market sales and forecasts
before coming to the conclusion that 3D printing will generate $12.1 billion in 2020. That’s some way
short of the most optimistic estimates, which suggest that the industry will generate more than $20 billion
a year by that time. But Ernst & Young, which concentrates on product design and supply chain work in
the additive manufacturing industry, highlighted a number of reasons to be optimistic.
3D printing has already evolved well beyond rapid prototyping and 5% of the companies questioned
claim to be using the technology to create end products, in the next 5 years. 38% of these companies,
expect to use additive manufacturing on a grand scale within five years,if they can get past the perceived
cost. There’s no doubt that replacing an entire production line with 3D printers is an expensive exercise,
especially with the speed of development meaning that the printers could be rendered obsolete in a matter
of years. 12% are finding restrictions on colors and 10% are experiencing issues with multi-materials.
Not everybody is ready to fully commit and using outside suppliers means that companies can take
advantage of a variety of materials, cutting edge equipment and no buy-in costs.
Also, 41% of the respondents expect to work with service providers while they evaluate Additive
Manufacturing and decide on the best system. The industry itself has to shake out, too, and big business
expects deals between 3D printing firms and logistics companies that could change the complexion of the
market and make a service deal more attractive than bringing the whole operation in house. The industry
has shown that 15% of the respondents actually expect that their products will end come from third party
print shops and logistics companies in the end, which could mean they just don’t need the same amount of
logistics or warehouse facilities if a third party is actually taking care of the supply. Some will use 3D
printing in combination with traditional processes,for instance for the fast production of molds that we
see today. Of course rapid prototyping, the initial purpose of 3D printing, has already changed the way a
number of companies do business. In, 57 case studies, Additive Manufacturing helped reduce the time to
produce a functional prototype by 63% and the costs by 70%.
Let me conclude with this last bit of information from the report. Historically, 3DP systems and related
services have caused a steep increase in Additive Manufacturing’s market volume, with a yearly growth
rate of 28% from 2011 to 2015. It is expected that this impressive growth will continue, and it’s
estimated that the 3DP market will expand by about 25% annually until 2020 — resulting in a total
market value that year of US $12.1b. This estimate takes into account historical data and analyst
consensus reports, as well as the different types of companies and varying maturity levels within the
I sincerely appreciate, your time and look forward to speaking with you, in a one-on-one meeting, and
presenting my business plan to you.
