Meteor Inkjet Ltd, a leading supplier of electronics, software, tools and services for industrial inkjet, together with Dyndrite, providers of the core accelerated computation engine designed to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, expand their collaboration with the announcement of Meteoryte, a 3D software tool that simplifies the development and adoption of inkjet technology for additive manufacturing applications.
Industrial inkjet 3D system developers, particularly those just getting started, face hardware, software and materials challenges. In some cases, the software challenges can be resolved by adopting off-the-shelf, open-source tools, but when these tools lack sufficient features or can’t offer the required production-ready performance, Meteoryte presents an ideal solution. Built with the Dyndrite Application Developer Kit, Meteoryte offers additive manufacturing system builders a foundational set of tools for the initial stages of machine development. With an easy-to-use 3D geometry manipulation interface, Meteoryte features include:
–Ability to import 3D meshes and geometry
–Easy geometry manipulation (move, rotate and scale)
–A 3D viewport for build area visualisation
–Slicing at up to 1200 dots per inch (dpi)
–Production of monochrome images for machine input
