1000 Kelvin, a Berlin/Los Angeles-based Startup on the cutting edge of AI solutions for metal and polymer 3D printing technology, announced the full commercial availability of its AI-powered copilot for 3D Printing, AMAIZE. By using a physics-informed AI, AMAIZE automatically identifies and corrects issues in a print file without altering the original design to achieve a perfect part the first time it is printed.

The company is also revealing its first integrations with commercial 3D printer manufacturers, including EOS, and customers, including a rocket launch provider based in California.

“The manufacturing and production sector accounts for one-fifth of global carbon emissions and 54% of the world’s energy usage. 3D printing has the unique ability to address these issues, but not until it works consistently. By improving the efficiency and reducing the waste associated with 3D printing, while making the technology easier to use, AMAIZE contributes to a more sustainable future.”

– Omar Fergani, Ph.D., Co-founder and CEO of 1000 Kelvin

AMAIZE uses physics-informed AI technology to generate optimal print recipes for first-time-right 3D printing. Users send a print file to the AMAIZE cloud, which analyses it and automatically corrects thermomechanical issues by optimising the scan strategy and process parameters. This eliminates the need for expensive finite element simulation software and numerous physical iterations, which waste materials, energy, and money.

1000 Kelvin has already integrated the cloud native solution AMAIZE directly with multiple machine OEMs, enabling next generation AI-software and compute infrastructure for additive manufacturing. AMAIZE has already been adopted by companies in the energy, aerospace, and contract manufacturing industries as a result of its successful early adoption programme. A California-based rocket launch provider, for example, encountered significant difficulties in 3D printing a critical part. The problems stemmed from print failure due to overheating and a significant reduction in support structures, which resulted in inefficiencies and delays.

The company was able to digitally iterate solutions to these thermal management problems by leveraging AMAIZE. As a result, the printed part had improved surface quality and performance. Notably, AMAIZE enabled the customer to reduce support structures by more than 80%, resulting in a more than 30% reduction in overall cost per part when both saved material and post-processing costs were considered. This case study demonstrates how AMAIZE’s emphasis on addressing the root cause—thermal management—can significantly reduce time to market.

1000 Kelvin has so far raised $3 million in funding, allowing it to expand beyond Europe and establish a presence in Los Angeles, California to serve its aerospace and defence clients.

About 1000 Kelvin: 1000 Kelvin was founded by a team of former Siemens executives and AI and additive manufacturing experts and is dedicated to transforming the 3D printing industry. Its AI-powered software, AMAIZE, enables aerospace, medical, and industrial manufacturing companies to print metal parts ‘first-time-right,’ improving yield, quality, and repeatability while lowering costs and CO2 emissions.
