Authentise, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, has released a new platform to simplify the sharing of digital designs. The Digital Design Warehouse is intended to help organisations create more cohesive Additive Manufacturing initiatives by bringing insights from different perspectives into full view across all teams.

The platform allows users their own personal library by uploading any 2D or 3D file type with fully configurable additional parameters. These designs can be further analysed using third-party plugins, such as Zverse (which enables the conversion from to 2D to 3D) and Castor (which assesses the project’s suitability for Additive Manufacturing).

Sharing is at the heart of the new platform. Access is tightly controlled with granular permissions, enabling users to share projects with internal and external stakeholders, and provides a space for everybody to engage in conversations, edit (where permitted) and view/access designs.

A particular use case presented by Authentise for its Digital Design Warehouse is spare parts. OEMs are able to use the platform to first manage the design and engineering process, bringing multiple designs, R&D and testing stakeholders together. Once complete, the design can be shared securely with potential clients via a fully custom-branded catalogue. The inclusion of an ‘Order Now’ button allows for the design to be sent directly to a production centre of choice.

“The market for additively manufactured spare parts is rapidly evolving,” stated Omer Blaier, CEO of Castor. “We’ve helped many companies assess the additive opportunities in their portfolio and acquire large databases of designs ready for action. What’s missing is a tool to help them develop those projects and then securely share those designs with production facilities. We’re delighted to see Authentise moving to fill the void and excited to be part of the project.”

Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise, added, “We are thrilled to launch the Digital Design Warehouse. The launch today shows that the distributed manufacturing dream that Authentise was founded on ten years ago is not dead. It will take several more years of concerted effort by the industry, but soon plane crashes caused by the lack of available spare parts – as happened in Nigeria in 2012 – will be history. We can only accomplish this by working together, so we’re excited to launch with two new integrations to Authentise’s open platform. Castor and Zverse help customers identify and develop the applications that ultimately help drive the industry. We can’t wait to include even more incredible features from third parties, as well as Authentise’s toolkit, such as prep-workflows.”

Those interested can find more information on the Digital Design Warehouse online and at Authentise’s booth at Formnext (11.0-A51).
