Granta Design and Senvol have announced that the Senvol Database, a comprehensive database of 3D printing materials and machines, will be available within Granta’s materials software, Granta MI and CES Selector.
Detailing over 550 machines and over 700 materials, the Senvol Database users should be able to use it within the Granta software to search and compare materials based on properties, type, or compatible machines.
They can identify and compare AM machines based on supported processes, manufacturer, required part size, cost, or compatible materials (and their properties), making it easier to find new ideas when researching AM options and to focus in on the most productive routes for a project.
“We’re pleased to be working with Senvol to further extend Granta’s solution for additive manufacturing,” said Granta Design COO Dr Patrick Coulter.
“The Senvol Database provides us with the best available Additive Manufacturing reference information, which both adds to our solution in this area and reinforces Granta’s strategy to provide the best single source of materials data across the broad range of engineering applications.”
Senvol president Zach Simkin, added: “We’re extremely excited to announce this partnership with Granta. Granta is one of the clear leaders in materials information technology, and through their platform, for the first time ever engineers will have the ability to compare additive manufacturing data against conventional manufacturing data.”
