3YOURMIND, Berlin, Germany, has partnered with Werk24, Munich, Germany, to expand its software functionalities with embedded machine-read drawing technology to identify and qualify parts for on-demand manufacturing. This partnership is said to signify 3YOURMIND’s commitment to developing its capabilities and supporting customers’ need to produce legacy and obsolete spare parts faster and closer to their end-use.

The integration, supported by Werk24, analyses two-dimensional technical drawings for additive manufacturability and minimises tedious data entry by automatically adding AM-suitable parts to customers’ digital inventory. Once diagnosed and sorted by manufacturability, engineers can select the best use cases to evaluate part information further and finalise technical assessments.

Additionally, the new integration enables 3YOURMIND customers to analyse parts with existing 3D models. With this functionality, customers can more easily compare data from technical drawings to determine whether additively manufactured parts meet – or improve – part performance.

“We are stoked to work with 3YOURMIND – a company that shares our mission of liberating engineers from reading technical drawings,” stated Dr Jochen Mattes, CEO at Werk24. “Our joint forces allow us to free the AM potential previously imprisoned in drawings.”

The partnership between Werk24 and 3YOURMIND is said to demonstrate manufacturing industries’ growing need to evaluate existing part inventories for Additive Manufacturing use cases. With this functionality, AM experts and engineers can spend less time doing manual part assessments and more on activities requiring critical expertise, such as new part design. As a result of this integration, engineers can expect to save between 5-8 minutes assessing each simple part and up to forty-five minutes per complex part.

“We are thrilled to accelerate part digitisation for on-demand manufacturing with more AI technology developed by Werk24,” added Stephan Galozy, Senior VP of Product at 3YOURMIND. “With this capability, our customers will quickly develop digital inventories of qualified parts for on-demand manufacturing, enabling them to save time and money on a much larger scale.”
