WAAM3D was founded in 2018 to transform the research discoveries of Cranfield University into a commercial product. WAAM3D aimed to create a supply chain to enable the business development of a wire-based AM system; a robot featuring world-leading 3D printing functions. WAAM processes have been designed to accommodate large-scale engineering parts. The variety of processes available also means that WAAM3D have the flexibility of moulding their system around the needs of their clients. WAAM benefits their clients by reducing manufacturing times costs and waste, simplifying supply chains and removing fabrication. WAAM has the potential to benefit an impressive array of industries including aviation, defence, renewables and even space.
The WAAM robot is currently operated using pre-uploaded programs. This means that data processing cannot be carried out in real-time; leading to inefficient processes and a slow response time.
WAAM3D wanted to transform the data processes and visualization of their user interface, converting them into real-time. This would increase the reaction time of the system, and ensure that the information was always kept up to date; making it more user friendly and easy to use.
To achieve their data processing goals, WAAM3D asked another company to design the UI for their project, and tasked us with the responsibility of implementing it.
