Dyndrite has announced a collaboration with SLM Solutions to support the SLM file formal within its Application Development Kit (ADK).
Through Dyndrite, SLM aims to offer its customers the possibility to design parameters based on unique aspects or needs, develop new IPs, protect any know-how, and gain a competitive advantage.
The provider of GPU-powered 3D CAD-to-print software should offer users the software power for generating tool paths and rasterising 3D data for additive manufacturing processes, including binder jetting, photopolymers and laser powder bed.
Additionally, through an integrated Python API, Dyndrite should bring full automation of CAD-to-print data workflows at a speed that aims to fulfil the most challenging production workflows or data requirements.
Dyndrite software should also enable the development of additive CAM, materials and process development, process qualification and calibration, and automated production lines.
“The future of additive manufacturing is open,” said Dyndrite CEO Harshil Goel.
“Only through democratisation will the industrialisation of additive manufacturing advance at a faster pace. Innovators need to rapidly experiment, protect their IP and be able to bring new solutions to market. SLM Solutions’ open architecture is an exemplar for the market.”
“At SLM, we enable and promote end-to-end AM solutions; it’s crucial to the success of our customers that this also entails materials and process parameters as essential ingredients outside the machine itself,” said Garett Purdon SLM Solutions VP of NA sales.
“SLM Solutions’ Open Architecture initiative enables Dyndrite and others to manipulate and make adjustments in order to provide our install base a competitive edge in their segment, adding software as a weapon in their arsenal.”
Dyndrite should immediately incorporate SLM single and multi-optic support directly within its ADK.
The companies said they will work together to ensure that users can fully create SLM parameters and tool paths to fit their individual needs, maximising materials development and application or part-specific build rate strategies.
