Additive Enterprises Cloud Manufacturing and Networking
The ACloud project aims to deliver a breakthrough in the world of customized Additive Manufacturing (AM) through utilization of cloud technologies. The project will develop tools, adequately user friendly and highly efficient, that will meet the requirements set by industry and consumers worldwide, addressing software for optimization of the AM machines, based on a unified approach. The project aims to deliver significant impact in terms of lowering the cost of software, provide secure storage of data in cloud, speed up utilization of manufacturing optimization software taking into account cost, time and flexibility, streamline communications between stakeholders of AM technology, and accelerate product development by expediting collaboration and providing optimization capabilities. These will be achieved through cloud-based implementations for holistic production optimization.
