Stora Enso, a leader in renewable packaging, is looking for Generative AI solutions to streamline the process of creating new designs and optimizing them for production, transport, and specific use cases. Their vision is to provide sustainable, affordable, and customized 3D-printed designs for their clients with shorter lead times.

Opportunity Overview

Today the process of creating 3D-printed customized designs is lengthy and takes a lot of trial and error, because the technology and material are still embryonic. A lot of prototyping is needed which leads to long lead times. Stora Enso aspires to shorten the design process and provide sustainable and affordable customized 3D-printed designs for their clients with the use of Generative AI.

Stora Enso envisions utilizing Generative AI to create packaging designs for unique and complicated products as well as designing furniture products with optimized design. Additionally, Stora Enso is interested in utilizing Generative AI for designing layouts for pre-defined spaces that will be filled with 3D-printed elements such as furniture. If you have deep knowledge of Generative AI in design or understanding 3D printing in manufacturing and engineering, Stora Enso is highly interested in hearing from you!
