Company Overview

Vention is the 1st digital manufacturing platform dedicated to Machine Design. Vention provides a fully-integrated 3D MachineBuilder™ and modular component library that let users design, order, and assemble custom industrial equipment directly from a web browser in just a few days.

Vention was founded in 2016 by a group of mechanical and software engineers that were getting frustrated with the time, cost and hassle involved in materializing their mechanical design ideas. Spending most of their childhood (and teenage years) playing LEGO™ Technic, the founders understood what it meant to imagine an invention in the morning and get it built in the afternoon. Vention is their way to scale-up the LEGO™ Technic concept to industrial-grade level.

Vention’s team is located in Montreal, Canada and consists of mechanical & mechatronic engineers, software engineers, and industry experts.
