Technology is enabling a development known as “smart spaces,” as in smart cities, smart homes and smart factories. The 3D printer manufacturer Rize Inc., will introduce its take on smart spaces for its 3D printing systems. The company will introduce “Smart Spaces for Innovation,” which is based on the ‘connected, interactive and intelligent environments’ identified by Gartner as one of the top ten technology trends for 2019.
Rize will launch:
–Smart Spaces for Product Innovation
— Smart Spaces for Manufacturing Innovation
–Smart Spaces for Service Innovation.
These spaces integrate innovative approaches in design with safe, easy and full-color 3D printing, creating intelligent parts that can be digitally connected to AR/VR technologies, blockchain and intelligent systems. Gartner and others believe that the Smart Spaces concept will help companies accelerate innovation, improve productivity and cut costs by up to 90%.
Smart Spaces in Product Innovation helps increase the number of iterations and gives design engineers haptic experiences. Full-color parts enable design and simulation to be on the same page. Generative shapes can be rapidly validated.
Smart Spaces in Manufacturing Innovation helps manufacturing and tooling engineers cut costs up to 90% by producing custom tools, jigs and fixtures. Errors in the engineering-to-manufacturing handoff are reduced. Plus, engineers can handle low volume parts production.
Smart Spaces in Service Innovation for service engineers helps increase plant and equipment uptime by on-demand printing of spare parts.
Smart Spaces, Powered by the XRIZE all-in-one desktop industrial 3D printer, allows carbon composites and voxel-level full-color and digitally augmented parts in engineered polymers. Smart Spaces includes a license of SOLIDWORKS Standard.
Rize will simultaneously launch Smart Spaces, Powered by XRIZE, to the North American market for the first time at AMUG in Chicago, March 31-April 4, 2019 in RIZE booth P18 and in the Dassault Systèmes booth, Hall 6/Booth K30, at Hanover Messe, April 1-4, 2019.
