CEAD and ADAXIS Revolutionize Large Format 3D Printing with AdaOne for Flexbot Integration
March 6, 2024

CEAD, a leader in robotic large format 3D printing solutions, is excited to announce a groundbreaking partnership with ADAXIS, a rapidly growing robotics software company. This strategic collaboration aims to redefine efficiency in large format 3D printing by integrating CEAD’s Flexbot solutions with ADAXIS AdaOne software, offering customers an unparalleled experience with composite materials.

In response to the growing reliance on modern technologies, CEAD recognizes the significance of close collaboration with software vendors to enhance the performance, compatibility, and functionality of their solutions. Teaming up with ADAXIS, a multinational team of innovators dedicated to transforming the world of industrial robotics, CEAD aims to provide customers with a more advanced and user-friendly total solution.

The result of this strategic partnership is the official launch of ‘AdaOne for Flexbot,’ a software integration specifically designed for CEAD’s Flexbot systems.

In the words of Maarten Logtenberg, co-founder, and CTO of CEAD:
“Cultivating shared values and a unified vision with the ADAXIS team empowers us to innovate swiftly, steering our collaborative efforts toward the entire ecosystem of large format 3D printing.”

AdaOne for Flexbot introduces a range of unique features, including scan-to-mill and automatic raft generator functionalities.

1. Automated Generation of Milling Paths based on Scan Data
The scan-to-mill feature facilitates post-3D printing data collection, enabling the automatic generation of a milling path based on acquired data. This ensures optimal alignment between the CAD model and the printed part, resulting in a seamless workflow with minimal milling time and maximized remaining material thickness.

2. Automated Secure Part Fixation on Print Bed
The raft generator is an innovative feature that automatically creates rafts to secure parts to CEAD’s print bed, minimizing material use. Exclusive to ADAXIS’ ‘AdaOne for Flexbot,’ this feature enhances end-user convenience by ensuring parts remain securely in place throughout the entire printing and post-processing cycle.

The incorporation of these innovative features in one software platform is a game-changer for 3D printing. CEAD’s refined methodology for large format 3D printing seamlessly converges within the ‘AdaOne for Flexbot’ platform, ensuring Flexbot users a smoother, more efficient experience with increased consistency, reliability, and build quality, while minimizing potential issues. This collaborative effort results in a software experience that seamlessly integrates with the Flexbot systems, elevating the overall 3D printing experience.
