Blacksmith

Blacksmith

Autopilot for digital manufacturing — connecting part design, production, inspection, and quality control with powerful AI.

Design. Print. Inspect. Validate.

Print with confidence via automated scanning + inspection as you print so parts can be used immediately.

Deliver precise, compliant parts — fast.

Traditionally, parts are often sent out for expensive, time consuming post-print inspection involving specialized equipment and expertise.

With Blacksmith, you can deliver precision parts to your customers faster and at reduced cost. And thanks to its process control data, you’ll always know who printed your parts and when, and what printer/software version was used.
