The HOW of Abstract Assembly

Everything is made of triangles

Any physical object can be broken down into triangles. For example, a rectangular prism consists of exactly 12 outward-facing triangles. 3D printing technology uses triangles to represent and print 3D models. Abstract Assembly's AI also sees a world of triangles. But instead of printing 3D models, our AI learns the shapes of different connective surfaces like holes, joints, and plugs. In this way, the AI learns how complex machines and systems are built, bringing us closer to general intelligence for engineering.

Artificial Intelligence

Our AI is a really advanced geometry solver. It sees the same kinds of triangles used in 3D printing to find similar geometries across potentially compatible commercial parts. It can find connective surfaces as naturally as we can conclude that a plug fits a socket. It can assemble complex systems like satellites and computers as if it were playing 3D Tetris. It learns HOW and WHY form fits function.

The Web App

Engineering software tools shouldn't need training to use. Interfaces should be intuitive. Abstract Assembly's web application is being made by and for systems engineers and project managers to bring you a slick, intuitive UI (user interface) that infuses SysML, trade studies, and decision matrices with the powers of responsive HTML5, NoSQL realtime databases, and the agile development model.
