Vention Releases Its Most Feature-Packed Version of MachineBuilder for Robot Cell Designs


MONTREAL, May 6, 2024—Vention, the cloud robotics company, launched the most comprehensive suite of advanced features yet for its 3D design software, MachineBuilder. It’s now faster than ever to create automated equipment and robot cells with intuitive and smart design tools.

The latest MachineBuilder release—the most substantial since 2022—features a refined design flow, smarter part placement, and enhanced part manipulation. The new quick-start feature lets manufacturers start a project from scratch or choose from Vention’s extensive design library, providing flexibility based on need, knowledge, and time.

When users are creating their own design or customizing one from the library, the new AI-driven Geometric Reasoning Engine (GRE) helps them place components correctly. This makes cell design accessible even to non-technical builders. Plus, the enhanced 3D interface makes for intuitive part manipulation, with seamless part moving and automatic snapping.

A standout feature is a real-time view of the bill of materials, pricing, and part specifications, which offers instant visibility into project essentials. Tech specs, 2D drawings, and more are now directly available in the 3D design environment.
