At Rapid + TCT, Dyndrite, based in Seattle, Washington, USA, has announced an updated release of Dyndrite LPBF Pro, the company’s Additive Manufacturing software for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) AM machines, including those from Aconity3D, EOS, Nikon SLM Solutions, Renishaw and Xact Metal.

Dyndrite LPBF Pro is a GPU-powered software toolkit that provides metal Additive Manufacturing producers with the ability manufacture more difficult-to-produce components, define accelerated build strategies, and automate build preparation. The software is designed to enhance the productivity, precision, traceability, and repeatability of AM materials development and serial production processes, while managing the increasing data demands of Additive Manufacturing.

The software is intended to set a new standard in the development of new materials, alloys, and multi-materials parameter sets; it also has the ability to work with multiple layer heights, enables the Additive Manufacturing of intricate geometry, including small features, thin walls, domes, and cantilevers, provides extensive surface roughness controls; and offers methods for developing support-free build strategies. Dyndrite LPBF Pro is reportedly already used within the aerospace, defence, rocketry, automotive, energy, and medical industries.

“Over the past six months, we’ve collaborated closely with the members of our early adopter programme to ensure our toolkit addresses their most significant technical challenges and process control needs,” said Steve Walton, Head of Development for Dyndrite. “Their feedback has been invaluable, and is incorporated in this latest release. We are excited to see what our users will be able to accomplish with these new tools.”

Enhanced Renishaw support

Renishaw QuantAM users can now leverage Dyndrite LPBF Pro’s 3D Volumetric Segmentation tools to analyse and assign multiple parameters to a part. Using this method, Renishaw users were able to successfully additively manufacture coupons with overhangs down to 30° support-free.

“Dyndrite has shown an incredible level of commitment to our industry with the release of Dyndrite LPBF Pro product, said Kevin Brigden, Application Engineering Manager, Renisha. “The leveraging of Renishaw’s QuantAM API ensures that our current and future customers have the opportunity to easily explore the incredibly powerful tool sets offered by Dyndrite. I’m extremely keen to see the novel solutions developed with volumetric segmentation and the increased performance gained with Dyndrite’s powerful tool path customisation capabilities.”

Representative Parts on Display at Rapid+TCT 2024 in Los Angeles

During the Rapid + TCT 2024 conference, a number of companies will showcase Dyndrite LPBF Pro printed parts. Each highlights the combined value of their material, or expertise with Dyndrite’s print performance and flexibility, these include:

  • Equisphere (booth 1361) – Showcasing customer aluminium parts printed both without, and with Dyndrite LPBF Pro demonstrating high-productivity and surface finish control.
  • Dyndrite (booth 2031):
  • AMS – will showcase parts printed using a jointly developed “Continuous Offset Contour” approach that overcomes the over-energized zones that legacy vector path and hatching strategies typically create, which often leads to peeling or build failures during the production of motorsport parts featuring thin wall ducts.
  • Aconity3D – Is presenting Equispheres aluminium prints demonstrating the high-productivity and advanced surface quality capabilities of Equispheres, Dyndrite LPBF Pro, and Aconity3D
