New Application Brings Massive Performance Improvements and Native CAD-to-Print Capabilities to Additive Manufacturing Technicians, Python Scriptability Opens Door to Workflow and Production Automation, Plus Early Access Program For Owners of Legacy Build Processors
Dyndrite™ Corporation ('den-drite') – world leader in high performance additive manufacturing software – today unveiled its state of the art Additive Manufacturing Toolkit (AMT) and accelerated production preparation build processor for 3D Printing. Poised to disrupt a market long-dominated by only a few players, the company also announced the “Early Access Program”, a limited-time offer for premier metal and industrial plastic additive
Dyndrite Additive Manufacturing Toolkit with Python interface
Built upon the company’s Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE), a first-of-its-kind GPU-powered geometry kernel, AMT provides powerful manufacturing oriented features. Capabilities include native CAD file import for maximum quality of 3D-printed output, as well as an integrated Python application programming interface (API) for customizable scripting of interactive, automated workflows.
Today’s additive customers are pushing the boundaries of manufacturing to improve efficiency, production throughput and quality. Unfortunately, users have had to rely upon legacy file formats, software applications and incomplete vertical solutions that fall short of meeting the growing design, data and scaled production needs of market leaders.
Dyndrite’s ACE geometry kernel and AMT build processor were designed from the ground up using a ‘First Principles’ approach, leveraging modern methodologies and technologies to meet the requirements of production oriented customers in the aerospace, medical, automotive, energy and service bureau markets. Dyndrite enables users to manage terabytes of manufacturing data, print higher-order geometries such as splines and dynamically adjust parts in-situ to increase both throughput and quality. In addition, Dyndrite empowers hardware OEMs, and software developers to build next-generation, intelligent devices and applications.
The Dyndrite architecture is a horizontal, scalable solution that provides a new foundation for software developers seeking to drive value across the varied and growing list of 3D printer manufacturers. Applications include improved Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), Product Data Management (PDM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), topology optimization, simulation, and other predictive printing technologies that inform users of the ‘printability’ of objects before and during production.
Users can expect the following capabilities:
Multi-threaded CPU/GPU performance that reduces compute time from hours to seconds;
Hybrid geometry kernel capable of hosting any geometry type without demoting to lower quality triangles;
Ability to prep files for any vector or raster 3D print process, incl. Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Selective Laser Melting (SLM) and Binder Jetting;
Ability to directly output spline data to devices that support it (currently in OEM testing);
Ability to handle massive datasets beyond 225M STLs (>10GB verified,);
Accelerated lattice and support generation, reducing hours of processing to minutes;
Flexible part labeling while retaining original geometry;
Streamlined User Interface (UI) & User Experience (UX) greatly simplifying build prep process;
Python interface for scripting workflow, including interactive applications; leveraging both a graphical user interface (GUI) and Python scripting interface;
Ability to “Save as Python”, enabling non-technical, non-Python users to work in the GUI and easily produce Python code that can be “rerun” by anyone, reproducing workflows previously created within the GUI.
Dyndrite is focused on five (5) key market segments: aerospace, automotive, energy, medical and service bureau. ACE and AMT are available for independent software vendor (ISV) or original equipment manufacturers( OEMs) to white label. The company also works directly with OEMs to take advantage and extend the unique characteristics of their printer hardware.
Companies can save significant money by taking advantage of the “Early Access Program”. For a limited time, if a company has purchased any other legacy build processor, Dyndrite will provide seats to match internal team users. The Early Access Program ends midnight on April 10, 2020.
In a separate release, Dyndrite also announced today the inclusion of simulation and topology optimization pioneers Ansys® and Altair®, along with 3D Printing Pioneers; 3DSystems™, SLM®, and ExOne™ as the newest members of the company’s Developer Council. This is a select group of ISVs and OEMs chartered with steering the future development of the Dyndrite roadmap.
