Formnext featured a plethora of software solutions.
Dyndrite, a software company known for its Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE), a (geometry-agnostic), multi-threaded, GPU-accelerated Geometry Engine that changes how geometry is created, transformed, and transmitted on a computer, has released an intriguing one.
Its most recent solution? A software solution for end users that focuses on material and process development for laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) applications.
The new product aims to provide more power and control over geometries, tool pathing recipes, and parameters by leveraging Dyndrite’s Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE) and 3D volumetric part segmentation.
It would also open up new possibilities for alloys, build rate strategies, and printing previously unprintable parts.
“After 12 years leading the assembly of one of the world’s most advanced AM factories at a large rocket manufacturer,
the Dyndrite engineers and I have been hard at work creating the tool that I wish I had in my previous role,” said Steve Walton, Dyndrite’s Head of Product.
“Previously, the industry lacked the software required to rationally investigate the opportunities presented by laser powder bed fusion processes.”
Users were unable to investigate new materials, building strategies, or even machine architectures promptly.
Dyndrite alters this.
“For those who want or need to go further, this new software offers a flexible new approach, a new data model, innovative and performant APIs, and complete access to toolpath geometry.”
The release is available through Dyndrite’s Early Adopter Program and includes support from several LPBF machine manufacturers,
AddUp, Farsoon, Renishaw, SLM Solutions, and TRUMPF. Their 3D printers will benefit from standard compatibility.
