3D-Printed Packaging, Smart Contract-Enabled

  • Our patented processes and systems for 3D-printed packaging, packaging in whole or in part for traditionally manufactured or 3D printed items, for retail, shipment, or storage, leverage smart-contracts and the blockchain to secure products, services, and supply chains. Amazing products have always been distinguished by amazing packages. Our processes and systems will build your business and brands. Licensing our patented technology will enhance your customer reach.


  • Our patent-pending distributed manufacturing network - manufacture anything, anywhere, using network-attached 3-D printers or other manufacturing equipment to build your products and get them into any distribution channel, or create your own. Attach underutilized equipment to the network and put it to to full use. Offer services in design, branding, marketing, and more to the packaged goods and manufacturing sector. With smart contracts, take control of manufacturing and supply chain opportunities, use big data, and create new business opportunities.


  • The KnurlCoin token enables the KnurlNetwork, and builds incentives for equipment owners, manufacturers, designers, and IP owners to provide their capacity, innovations, and distribution networks, including licensing on demand for patented processes, and copyrighted, patented, or trademarked products in a secured, distributed manufacturing marketplace. Connecting tokens to the real world, for B2B or B2C customers. As near to magic, or a replicator, as you can get!
