AMFG, a provider of MES software for additive manufacturing, announced that it is cooperating with Autodesk to link its MES software with Autodesk’s design and simulation software, Netfabb.
As part of this endeavour, AMFG’s MES software can be used seamlessly with Netfabb, enabling users of both software programs to establish a fully integrated, end-to-end digital workflow from design to production.
Users will be able to prepare their 3D files for production using the full range of Autodesk’s Netfabb and Fusion 360 solutions, which include CAD, CAM, CAE, metal process simulation, 2D/3D nesting and support generation as well as lattice design. At a click of a button, these files can then be seamlessly managed in AMFG’s workflow automation software, where users can operate their entire production workflow, including coordinating requests, scheduling production and receiving data analytics in real time.
“One of the biggest barriers for companies looking to scale their AM operations is the lack of a seamless, end-to-end workflow,” said Keyvan Karimi, CEO of AMFG. “Today, much of the Additive Manufacturing landscape is still made up of a series of disconnected and manual steps, which make managing the process inefficient and unscalable. We are delighted to work with Autodesk, a leader in its field, to enable an end-to-end workflow solution and provide the workflow traceability and scalability needed to help push AM to industrialization.”
