Metal 3D printer machine interface
2020 - Ongoing (TENA studio)
Tritone’s Dominant is an industrial additive manufacturing machine that able to print different materials such as steel, titanium, copper, and ceramics. TENA studio were responsible for the machine’s interface from start and still play the major part of designing new features and actions. During my time in TENA I was part of designing multiple features for Tritone’s machines.
TENA studio was founded by two Industrial Designers integrating two disciplines - Industrial Design & UX/UI. I’ve grown tremendously at TENA. Some key insights of which I have listed below:
As part of the UX/UI Team, I participated in all phases of the project.Research, wireframing, prototyping, detailed UI design, and handover to developers.
The annotations feature was developed in order to help the operator to communicate with their collegues between shifts. Each print job may take hours, and one print job may include multiple objects. The operators have to communicate within the interface and mark points of interest in specific slices. These might be related to print settings, attention to accuracy of important parts or just logging events related to a specific job.
New feature to detect different defects during print. Allows the operator to inspect and act upon different defects, report and mark points of interest for their collegues.
