faBrickation: Fast 3D Printing Using Bricks

Hasso-Plattner-Institut:

faBrickation is a new approach to rapid prototyping of functional objects, such as the body of a head-mounted display. The key idea is to save 3D printing time by automatically substituting sub-volumes with standard building blocks — in our case Lego bricks. When making the body for a head-mounted display, for example, getting the optical path right is paramount. Users thus mark the lens mounts as “high-resolution” to indicate that these should later be 3D printed. faBrickator then 3D prints these parts. It also generates instructions that show users how to create everything else from Lego bricks.

IDS NXT is the future: One platform, countless possibilities

IDS NXT: a platform for a new generation of vision systems for industrial applications. It lays the groundwork to provide easy-to-use yet flexible complete systems that can be used to implement all steps of a vision solution. With IDS NXT ocean, a complete solution especially for AI-based image processing is now available. It allows to solve tasks where classic, rule-based image processing has reached its limits - without any programming effort.
