Inkbit is a 2017 spinout from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). We use machine vision and AI to make production-ready additive manufacturing systems.


OUR MISSION

No additive manufacturing platform today offers the combination of reliability, throughput, precision, and quality materials required by a factory floor. Our goal is to change this. Join us in our journey to build the factories of the future.
