Tend.ai Proposes Cloud Robotics for 3D Print Farm Automation

 3D printing has numerous benefits, from the ability to customize products to fabricating geometrically complex parts; however, the technology is still limited in terms of output, making traditional production techniques much more appealing for mass manufacturing. Farms of 3D printers are a potential solution to batch production, with some companies relying on numerous machines to 3D print a large group of parts at once. While they may increase output, print farms may also be labor intensive to operate. To demonstrate the overall utility of its cloud robotics platform, an Oregon startup called Tend.ai has deployed a robotic arm, artificial intelligence and cloud computing to create an automated print farm. The Tend.ai platform combines machine learning and cloud computing for machine automation. (Image courtesy of Tend.ai.) Tend.ai has built what it…
