Advanced Automation

Aibuild provides fully automated toolpath generation for industrial additive manufacturing. Our platform’s advanced automation and adaptive capabilities enable fast, predictable and repeatable industrial 3D printing at scale.

Simple to Use

Increase your industrial 3D printing capability through one simple-to-use visual user interface. Easily manage even the most advanced toolpaths across all 3D printers in any location.

Fast, Reliable & Scalable

Successful 3D printing adoption as part of a manufacturing process is dependent on consistency, repeatability and predictability of outcome. Aibuild is designed to enable fast, efficient and predictable additive manufacturing.

Efficiency Gains

Eliminate bottlenecks and recurring build errors. Our clients build successful toolpaths 86% quicker, with failed builds decreased by 65%, parts 3x stronger and a 90% efficiency gain in overall build time.

Artificial Intelligence

Our AI-driven AM platform replaces manual coding with visual programming. We achieve repeatable success by ensuring all system components – hardware, software and materials – operate as a unified, integrated, intelligent automated system.

Reusable Workflows

Develop your own IP and reusable workflows within the Aibuild platform. Fully automate the additive manufacturing process from plan to print, radically improving speed, quality, scalability and application range.


Why is Aibuild the best AM technology partner for the energy sector?

Aibuild software is the ideal additive manufacturing technology for the energy sector in supporting rapid iteration of critical components Where's the minimum need for post-processing and maximum component strength. Our cloud-based platform supports the easy distribution of toolpath strategies across the enterprise, collapsing the supply chain of business critical parts.

What manufacturing processes are supported in your software?

Bring your hardware, printers and processes under one roof. Our platform supports a variety of AM processes, including but not limited to:
Polymer pellet extrusion (also known as FGF)
Polymer filament extrusion (also known as FFF)
Metal wire extrusion (also known as DED, direct energy deposition)
Metal wire arc (also known as WAAM)
Other additive processes
Subtractive processes (e.g. milling for finishing)

Is LFAM ready for production? Is it still in a research-stage?

Yes, the application range that our software platform enables together with high print quality output means that your LFAM Ambitions can be realized fully. We have tier 1 energy clients using our technology to support production on a global basis today.

How do you connect AM hardware, software and materials?

The software platform is a central hub for various AM data inputs, including materials data, hardware configuration, as well as process steps and parameters. Our extensive partner network helps us to maintain an up-to-date library of printers and material data. Our lab’s additional material testing, research studies and testing helps us to tailor recommended settings and our algorithms to ensure you get the best quality without having to go through various trial-and-error iterations to get a good quality print.

How can you ensure zero-changes to my toolpath over the course of a typical product lifecycle?

All workflows from June 2024 onwards are fully backwards compatible. This means your sliced parts & toolpaths aren’t affected by new updates to the platform. You have the choice to upgrade your projects to the latest version, or to continue to use the version that you used to generate your toolpath. You can make edits, add new process steps, re-compute, change input files and more, even though you aren’t using the latest version of the software. A toolpath made in 2024 and be edited and re-computed in 2034. This ensures repeatability and traceability across the full product development cycle. This is the power and flexibility of the cloud.

Do energy companies use your software?
