Software development toolkits (SDKs) help CAD/CAM vendors create workflow solutions for additive and hybrid machining. The developers of these SDKs are Spatial Corp, a leading provider of 3D SDKs for design, manufacturing, and engineering (and a subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes), and ModuleWorks, a leading supplier of CAD/CAM SDKs for machining and simulation.
With surface recognition and checking and healing capabilities, Spatial’s CGM Polyhedra SDK delivers a precise, watertight mesh. This mesh, along with high-precision CAD data, can be passed to the ModuleWorks additive and hybrid manufacturing components to create complete, cost-effective workflows for high-quality additive and hybrid machining applications.
The ModuleWorks additive software components offer toolpath calculation and simulation, as well as nozzle and material definition, multiple STL capabilities, and automatic nesting.
