EIT Digital, a digital innovation, education community and accelerator of the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT), has supported the creation of a 3D printing database. Developed to help manufacturers identify potential time and cost savings, the directory aims to encourage more businesses to switch to 3D printing instead of conventional methods.

Aalto University Finland created the database, which will be rolled out as a plugin for 3D data expert software from industrial partner DeskArtes, also based in Finland. Leading manufacturing company and 3D software developer Siemens created knowledge graphs for the system, ensuring logical links between all collected data.

Industry - Manufacturing - Businesses - Way - Things

When developing under Industry 4.0, conventional manufacturing businesses are challenged with rethinking the way things are done. For 3D printing’s part in this, many stakeholders are rising to the aid of these businesses at a peak point of transition.

Senvol is still without doubt the largest additive manufacturing database in the industry, and is leveraged by a wide variety of sectors to help with process integration. Recently, American manufacturing association SME launched its Interactive RAPID AM Portal (iRAMP) too to help manufacturers determine “Can I Make It?” and “Should I Make It?” using additive manufacturing. Research, at an academic level, is also being undertaken to potentially develop a system for identifying when additive manufacturing makes sense.

Development - Aalto - Database - Activity - Automation

Development of the Aalto database was undertaken for an activity titled “Automation Support for Additive Manufacturing,” part of the wider Operate Digital Industry with Products and Services (OEDIPUS) High Impact Initiative (HII). Through OEDIPUS HII, EIT Digital is seeking solutions to help SMEs...
