SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mantle, a company whose metal 3D printing solution makes high-precision parts for the tooling industry, announced that Paul DiLaura joined the company as its Chief Commercial Officer. DiLaura brings over 20 years of experience building and leading teams that serve the manufacturing industry, most recently at Carbon and Dassault Systèmes.
“We are changing the way manufacturers bring their products to market with a major innovation for the tooling industry.

“I am excited to help manufacturers reinvent how they create their critical tooling with Mantle’s TrueShape technology,” said DiLaura. “I joined Mantle because of our unique ability to make precision parts with trusted tool steels at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional manufacturing or other 3D printing processes. I look forward to working with manufacturers and partners to realize this value and to help evolve our technology.”
