iFactory One: 3D printer with AI-based error protection

The iFactory One is the first 3D printer to feature the AI-based PrinterGUARD print error protection software developed by German startup iFactory3D. PrinterGUARD detects the most common printing errors and actively helps to prevent them.

PrinterGUARD AI software detects the most common 3D printing errors

The startup iFactory3D introduces the iFactory One. The first 3D printer with the PrinterGUARD protection system with error detection function. PrinterGUARD is based on artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that can detect and correct 3D printing errors.

“PrinterGUARD can detect and eliminate the five most common 3D printing faults: spaghetti, detached objects, warping, stringing, and air printing. In addition, iFactory One users can receive error notifications via email or Messenger.” – Artur Steffen, CEO of iFactory3D

The iFactory One’s AI can learn on its own while operating and continuously update the printer software via the cloud. Soon, the PrinterGUARD AI algorithms will detect up to 20 types of errors, helping to avoid them.

Smart, “always young” 3D printer pushes the boundaries of additive manufacturing

“All these features will help improve the reliability of the machines and everybody will benefit from working with an ‘always young’ 3D printer,” adds Artur Steffen.

In addition, the iFactory One has cloud-based technical support that provides customers with regular software updates, a high level of service as well as the protection against printing errors with PrinterGUARD.

The development of the PrinterGUARD software is directly related to the unique selling point of the Düsseldorf-based startup’s first hardware product. iFactory3D has dedicated the last year and a half to the development of a 3D belt printer to soon leave the usual limitations of additive manufacturing behind.

3D belt printer for unlimited 3D printing

With a conveyor belt as the print bed, there is literally no limit to the length of the printed objects. The iFactory One (with non-stop operation) allows users to expand their horizons and creativity with complete automation and a continuous printing process. Thanks to the belt, printed objects no longer have to be taken off the print bed one by one before a new print can be started. And because iFactory One’s printing processes can be controlled remotely, there’s no need to be on site to keep production going. You gain flexibility and, above all, precious time – with increased productivity. The iFactory One is the key to intelligent and unlimited 3D printing.
