PARC Demo of uFab geometric reasoning and Printed Electronics

1. uFab is an automated system for process planning and time and cost estimation for subtractive and additive manufacturing. Our software uses geometric reasoning and techniques from artificial intelligence to examine in seconds hundreds of millions of ways a 3D part can be made. What previously only expert machinists were capable of, uFab allows anyone to do, or better.
2. PARC is reinventing how electronics are made, from basic electronic components up to complete 3D devices, using traditional printing processes and new “functional” (semiconductive, conductive, resistive) inks. We can print entire digital systems in large sizes, on flexible substrates and using existing printing equipment such as newspaper printers.
