German 3D printing software program developer 3YOURMIND has been awarded with €1.three million to combine machine studying options into its additive manufacturing workflow.
Co-financed by Investitionsbank Berlin (IBB) and the European Regional Growth Fund (ERDF), this funding is a part of the Professional FIT undertaking which helps revolutionary technological developments.
“Our software program makes it easy and price efficient for firms to enter and scale additive manufacturing,” stated Stephan Kühr, CEO, 3YOURMIND. “By including extra machine studying to our software program we’ll multiply the effectiveness of AM packages.”
“AM is already a data-driven manufacturing technique and we’re the main firm to give attention to connecting and optimizing workflows utilizing that knowledge. 3YOURMIND is creating the software program infrastructure for a degree of automation we name agile manufacturing; the flexibility to rapidly and precisely adapt manufacturing to buyer wants and firm assets.”

Additive manufacturing and machine studying
Based in 2014, 3YOURMIND software program digitizes additive manufacturing processes for firms within the U.S. and Europe. An addition to its current end-to-end workflow administration platforms, Agile Manufacturing Execution System (Agile MES) has been launched to allow automated half and job scheduling.
Agile MES additionally permits OEMs to execute features resembling correct pricing, file administration, automated order processing and clear monitoring of the manufacturing ground. 3YOURMIND believes that including machine studying to those processes will advance additive manufacturing “to the extent of automation seen from Trade four.zero.”
Specifically, the funding will add synthetic neural networks (ANNs), which robotically support programming challenges, in 3YOURMIND software program. Peter Schwarz, Venture Supervisor at Förderbar, a Berlin-based monetary advisor concerned within the Professional FIT undertaking added:
“3YOURMIND has already confirmed its revolutionary power, effectivity by way of sturdy cooperation prior to now. We all know they’ll use the brand new funding to ‘add velocity to AM adoption’. We’re proud to assist them securing the funding of 1.three million euros, and assist 3YOURMIND to additional prolong its technological lead.”

Professional FIT “Good 3D printing”
Below the Professional FIT Berlin undertaking “Good 3D printing” 3YOURMIND plans to investigate 3D printed half data and platform utilization from opt-in environments, evaluating knowledge to establish codify patterns. It will then be examined into its workflow to speed up half choice, manufacturing suggestions, scheduling, nesting and general orientation.
This undertaking started in October 2018 and can proceed over the subsequent two years for the programming growth work to combine machine studying straight into the 3YOURMIND software program suite.
