CAD.ai SaaS API for CAD/CAM

Smart APIs to Disrupt Computer Aided Design & Manufacturing Industries

Autodesk and 3D Systems should be afraid.

CAD.ai is a small but mighty tech company, offering a SaaS-based API for computer aided design (CAD) and manufacturing industries that is crushing competitors with the latest, most powerful features.

Packaged as a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform, this 10-employee Ogdensburg, NY-based company has introduced a “developers-first” API into the market.

The APIs are targeted at companies that use or want to add CAD/CAM features but lack time to develop an in-house solution. The opportunities are endless when it comes to building new products, services, apps and even bots.

About CAD.ai

CAD.ai was founded in October 2016 by veterans of the 3D-printing industry and creators of 3Dponics (now powered by CAD.ai APIs), the world’s first 3D-printable and open-source parametric gardening system with over 13,000 registered makers and an award for best application of 3D printing in 2015. The same team also launched 3Dprintler (also powered by CAD.ai APIs), a search engine for 3D-printing services, resembling the Kayak or TripAdvisor, which raised a seven-figure investment in 2016.

Since its inception, the CAD.ai startup has raised over $100,000 in seed round funding.

Looking for Early Adopters

We are now focusing all our efforts on securing early adopters and developing more APIs. While Autodesk is depreciating their 3D Print API on January 15, 2017, CAD.ai welcomes all developers left out and introduces free accounts for all early adopters.

Special thanks goes to MakeXYZ, Envirolaser, DroneDeploy, TreatStock, Tiertime and other companies who started collaborating with us.

Interested in becoming an early adopter of our APIs?
