Our core technologies are a geometry-specific sensor design and a desktop hardware to automate fabrication by 3D printing parts which already contain electronics for benchtop testing. Our goal is to enable innovation and improve the quality of testing during the R&D phase of product engineering.
What is nowadays called ‘3D Printing’ arose from ‘Rapid Prototyping’ technologies which were created for engineers to build ideas and designs faster in order to save resources downstream in the design cycle. Even though these have been around for almost 3 decades, they are recently gaining great popularity through their public knowledge and ready availability. However even though electrical prototyping and ‘sensorizing’ benchtop devices is an integral part of the design cycle many processes are still time consuming and skill-intensive, like adding strain gauges for example.
