After weeks of anticipation, the winners of the EIT Digital Challenge 2017 will gradually be announced. Florian Reichle won the Digital Industry category with his 3D printing software company Trinckle. With its cloud platform paramate, trinckle simplifies the design process for customized products within any industry. Based on a powerful set of algorithms, paramate enables endless possibilities for product configuration. In a nutshell, trinckle seemingly is the next step for the 3D printing industry. We interviewed Florian Reichle, Co-founder of trinckle, on how the company came to be, how it is progressing and his goals for the future.
Introduce to 3D-printing
Reichle: “Basically, starting up with trinckle was a very long process. In the very early stages, I co-developed the solution with my co-founders. We met in 2012 at one of many startup events in Berlin, when I had some spare time during my Ph.D. studies. I worked at the Business School ESCP Europe at the time, while both of my co-founders were postdocs in physics. They were also the first to introduce me to the concept of 3D-printing. Shortly after, we realized that, if it were to be possible, it would change everything. Also, no one was really aware of what it was at the time.”
