Materials.AI is powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology through an application programming interface integration with Fictiv’s digital manufacturing platform and is extensively trained on Fictiv’s manufacturing data and offerings. Engineers can consult with Materials.AI directly on the Fictiv platform, receive informed material suggestions, and place their manufacturing orders—-all in one place, on-demand.
Materials.AI helps engineers navigate multi-factor considerations to make fast, informed decisions, the company reports.
“Historically, manufacturing consultation has been largely confined to one-on-one conversations with too few experts, making it slow and difficult for engineers to get the information they need when it comes to manufacturing,” says Chris Lippi, chief product officer at Fictiv. “At Fictiv, we leverage technology to democratize access to critical manufacturing knowledge, tools, and services. And so we’re thrilled to leverage groundbreaking advances in AI large language models and our own growing dataset to provide customers with an even better service experience.”
Materials.AI is the latest advancement in Fictiv’s AI-powered manufacturing platform, which employs computational geometry algorithms to analyze the manufacturability of mechanical part designs in seconds. This enables customers to compare in real-time thousands of different combinations of manufacturing process, material, finish, lead time, and geographical options with pricing information to make efficient decisions for their manufacturing orders, the company says.
