3YOURMIND is the industry leader for software optimising additive manufacturing processes.

The funding project “Smart 3D printing” researched the use of artificial neural networks (ANNs) in the software, in order to identify which components, e.g. of an ICE, can be manufactured faster, of higher quality and more cost-effective with a 3D printing process. In addition, a process has been developed that optimises the installation space of a 3D printer, thus elevating the number of parts produced per printing process.
