Authentise, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, has released 3DGPT, an Artificial Intelligence tool which allows users to interrogate what it refers to as the world’s largest collection of Additive Manufacturing knowledge in every-day language.

Users can ask 3DGPT general questions, such as ‘What Additive Manufacturing technologies can print concrete?, to ones as specific as ‘How do I reduce the likelihood of defects when working with stainless steel in powder bed fusion?’ and receive answers rooted in industry knowledge. The answers draw on the knowledge contained in journal articles and standards, as well as the general knowledge on which OpenAI’s ChatGPT is built. Unique to 3DGPT, however, is the ability to provide references for its technical answers, enabling users to check their veracity.

“AI is evolving at an incredible pace and it’s time for the additive community to see how it can benefit. Authentise has always focused on integrating the world’s best algorithms into its workflows, and we’re delighted to be the first to teach Large Language Models decades worth of additive knowledge,” stated Andre Wegner, CEO. “Personally, I’ve been continually astounded by the know-how in the industry. It’s a pleasure to help make that more accessible, but it’s clearly just the start.”

“There are many ways we think that this tool might be useful inside our product portfolio – whether it’s to help create reliable and efficient workflows or make RFQs with many standards references more penetrable,” Wegner continued. “Before that – we, Authentise as well as partners such as ASTM, naturally need to understand the technology’s opportunities and limits; we know that GPT algorithms sometimes hallucinate, for instance. Releasing this at TCT360, an event which epitomises knowledge sharing, will help us understand how people will and want to use 3DGPT.”

Innovate UK supported the development of 3D GPT through the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)’s Scalable AM Rule Creation & Dissemination project. Authentise will release 3DGPT at the Smart Factory Expo, part of Manufacturing + Engineering Week in Birmingham, UK, held in conjunction with TCT360 on June 7-8, 2023.
