Divergent’s digital production system, the Divergent Adaptive Production System (DAPS™), radically transforms auto manufacturing economics and environmental impact using a data-driven approach for designing and building vehicle structures. Divergent has invented a complete manufacturing solution to address system level challenges.  The Divergent Adaptive Production System (DAPS) is a complete software hardware solution designed to replace traditional vehicle manufacturing.  To make the complex simple, it is a complete modular digital factory for complex structures. Given a set of digital requirements as input, the machine automatically computationally engineers, additively manufactures,  and assembles any complex structure.  The system is able to move seamlessly between manufacturing different vehicle models.
