French-Swedish robotics software company Adaxis, headquartered in Bayonne, France, is joining the 3MF consortium as an Associate Member. The 3MF consortium is comprised of twenty-one members representing the Additive Manufacturing and 3D CAD industry. Established in 2015, its mission is to deliver a file format that adheres to key principles crucial for the Additive Manufacturing industry.
In its role within the consortium, Adaxis hopes to work with other consortium members in order to optimise the 3MF format specifically for robotic Additive Manufacturing. By collaborating and sharing insights, Adaxis aims to drive advancements in Additive Manufacturing technology, unlock new possibilities, and enhance the capabilities of robotic systems in the industry.

Emil Johansson, co-founder of Adaxis shared, “Today, the ability to create high-quality multi-axis tool paths can heavily rely on the input 3D model. A standardised and capable file format will make it easier to share and extract vital information about the 3D surfaces, optimal manufacturing sequence, and materials.”
Duann Scott, Director of the 3MF Consortium added, “As Additive Manufacturing processes and applications mature, communicating design and manufacturing intent with a representation of the surface only is no longer enough to accurately or reliably produce results the machines are capable of. Adaxis brings yet another dimension to the problem with their multi-axis robot Additive Manufacturing software.”
“By joining the 3MF Consortium, Adaxis will be critical in helping to shape and implement data in a standardised format to include other information such as manufacturing process, materials and more. We look forward to working with Adaxis to help their customers, and the manufacturing industry at large through open-source collaboration.”
