Dyndrite-SLM Solutions Collaboration to Support CAD-to-Print CapabilitiesOctober 26, 2022
Dyndrite, provider of a GPU-accelerated computation engine used to create digital manufacturing hardware and software, announced a collaboration with SLM Solutions for support of the SLM file format within its application development kit (ADK). Dyndrite delivers an ADK which provides GPU-powered 3D CAD-to-print software development. Through the collaboration, SLM additive manufacturing (AM)-machine customers will be able to design parameters based on unique aspects, or their unique needs, and enable development of new IP, as well as the ability to protect any know-how and gain competitive advantage, according to Dyndrite officials.
Dyndrite provides software power for generating toolpaths and rasterizing 3D data for AM processes, including binder jetting, laser powder-bed printing and photopolymer work. Additionally, through an integrated Python API, Dyndrite technology reportedly enables full automation of CAD-to-print data workflows.
“The future of AM is open,” says Harshil Goel, Dyndrite CEO. “Only through democratization will the industrialization of AM 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.”
Dyndrite immediately will incorporate SLM single- and multi-optic support directly within its ADK, with the companies working together to ensure that users can create SLM parameters and toolpaths to fit their individual needs.
