The Digital Manufacturing Commons, or DMC, is an open-source, online platform for connecting communities and sharing solutions across the manufacturing product life cycle. It allows distributed teams to collaborate within a common virtual workspace by linking people, data, and tools. Learn more about the DMC at and visit the DMC itself at


The DMC features identity management, project collaboration, and professional networking to make it easy to connect in a variety of ways. The DMDII member portal and project management features with the DMC streamline users’ work.


Users can discover apps through our marketplace—or more actively participate by publishing, sharing, and linking manufacturing apps to create new solutions faster.


Secure data management features allow users to easily organize, store, and find data, all with fine-grained permissions for sharing and access control.
