Dyndrite, providers of the GPU-accelerated computation engine used to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, announced a collaboration with SLM Solutions for support of the SLM file format within its Application Development Kit (ADK). Through Dyndrite, SLM customers will be able to design parameters based on unique aspects, or their unique needs, developing new IP, protecting any know-how, and gaining competitive advantage.
Dyndrite delivers an ADK which provides GPU-powered 3D CAD-to-print software development. Dyndrite provides the software power for generating toolpaths and rasterizing 3D data for additive manufacturing processes, including binder jetting, photopolymers and laser powder bed. Additionally, through an integrated Python API, Dyndrite brings full automation of CAD-to-print data workflows at a speed that fulfills even the most challenging production workflows or data requirements.
Dyndrite software enables the development of additive CAM, materials and process development, process qualification & calibration and automated production lines.
“The future of additive manufacturing is open,” said Harshil Goel, CEO, Dyndrite. “Only through democratization will the industrialization 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, Vice President of NA Sales at SLM Solutions. “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 will immediately incorporate SLM® single and multi-optic support directly within its ADK. The companies will work together to ensure that users can fully create SLM® parameters and toolpaths to fit their individual needs, maximizing materials development and application or part-specific build rate strategies.
