Meteor Inkjet Ltd, headquartered in Cambridge, UK, a supplier of electronics, software, tools and services for industrial inkjet systems, together with Dyndrite, based in Seattle, Washington, USA, have 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.
Built with the Dyndrite Application Developer Kit, Meteoryte offers the developers a foundational set of tools for the initial stages of machine development.
Meteoryte features include:
- Ability to import 3D meshes and geometry
- Simple geometry manipulation (move, rotate and scale)
- A 3D viewport for build area visualisation
- Slicing at up to 1200 dpi
- Production of monochrome images for machine input
“Additive Manufacturing machines that require jetting print heads are becoming increasingly popular,” stated Harshil Goel, CEO, Dyndrite. “Through software, our goal is to empower machine builders and improve their success rate, while reducing their time to market. Our mission is to provide tools that create new tools. Meteoryte powered by Dyndrite is a perfect example of a tool that helps downstream customers with an accelerated path to success.”
Clive Ayling, Managing Director of Meteor, added, “Developing and implementing an industrial inkjet system can be challenging, and new 3D applications and companies are emerging all the time. Meteor’s scalable datapath solutions for all major printheads, coupled with Meteoryte, will allow our OEM customers to harness the power of inkjet for 3D and additive manufacturing applications by significantly reducing development cost, time and risk.”
