Dyndrite expands Application Development Kit with support for SLM file format

October 26, 2022

Dyndrite, headquartered in Seattle, Washington, USA, has announced a collaboration with SLM Solutions, Lübeck, Germany, for support of the SLM® file format within its Application Development Kit (ADK). Through Dyndrite, SLM Solutions customers will be able to design parameters based on unique aspects, or their unique needs, developing new IP, protecting knowledge, and gaining competitive advantage.

Dyndrite delivers an ADK which provides GPU-powered 3D CAD-to-build software development. The company provides the software power for generating toolpaths and rasterising 3D data for Additive Manufacturing processes, including Binder Jetting, photopolymers and Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB). Additionally, through an integrated Python API, Dyndrite brings full automation of CAD-to-print data workflows at a speed that fulfills challenging production workflows or data requirements.

Dyndrite will immediately incorporate SLM® single and multi-optic support directly within its ADK. The companies will work together to ensure that users can fully create SLM® parameters and toolpaths to fit their individual needs, maximising materials development and application or part-specific build rate strategies.

“The future of Additive Manufacturing is open,” stated Harshil Goel, CEO, Dyndrite. “Only through democratisation will the industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing 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.”

Garett Purdon, vice president of NA Sales at SLM Solutions, stated, “At SLM, we enable and promote end-to-end AM solutions; it’s crucial to the success of our customers that this also entails materials and process parameters as essential ingredients outside the machine itself. SLM Solutions’ Open Architecture initiative enables Dyndrite and others to manipulate and make adjustments in order to provide our install base a competitive edge in their segment – adding software as a weapon in their arsenal.”
