Dyndrite Voxel API (Application Program Interface) has been launched, as the company looks to enable software developers to create and manipulate massive data-rich voxel sets with eyebrow-raising performance.
Due to growing build volumes, increasing print resolutions, and the growing need for more metadata to aid the manufacturing process, voxel-based additive manufacturing data has seen an exponential increase in size by terabytes and petabytes.
Dyndrite cites legacy CPU-only voxel solutions as holding back this system – struggling to create, import and manipulate these enormous data sets.
“This is the first voxel manipulation tool hypertuned for the accuracy and resolution needed in modern scientific and engineering workflows, including digital manufacturing,” said Dyndrite CEO Harshil Goel.
“With the increasing sophistication of CT scanners, MRIs and additive manufacturing print heads, developers require more powerful tools to realise the full capabilities and resolution of their hardware.
“We look forward to working with our partners and customers to put this power into the hands of their end-users.”
The Dyndrite Voxel API is a new element of the Dyndrite accelerated geometry engine which promises unprecedented performance, portability, scalability, and repeatability for digital manufacturing OEMs and ISVs building next generation solutions.
It incorporates a powerful, hybrid geometry kernel driven by Nvidia GPUs and is accessible via an integrated Python API, allowing the user to develop CAD-to-print workflows.
“Voxels are the language for a growing number of high-speed additive manufacturing processes and devices – especially those aimed at production,” said Gareth Neal, customer applications manager and 3D specialist at Xaar.
“We need ways and methods to quickly create, enrich and prepare data for output. The Dyndrite Voxel API is a standout solution that could provide those outcomes.”
