Spatial Corp. Joins ADAPT

The new member company brings expertise in 3D software development.

ADAPT, the Alliance for the Development of Additive Processing Technologies, a research consortium focused on developing technologies to accelerate the certification and qualification of 3D-printed metal parts, has added Spatial Corp. as a new member. Spatial is a provider of 3D software development toolkits for design, manufacturing and engineering solutions, including additive manufacturing hardware producers.

“Spatial will use its membership in ADAPT to bolster our technical expertise in additive manufacturing and strengthen our relationships in the industry. We also believe that our existing partnerships with many AM hardware and software providers can expand ADAPT’s capabilities,” says Ray Bagley, director of product management for 3D modeling and additive manufacturing.

“Spatial’s membership in ADAPT adds a member focused on the software workflows for 3D printing, which is also at the heart of many of our data-driven research activities," says ADAPT Technical Director Aaron Stebner. "Through both 3D printing equipment manufacturers and developers of specialty software applications, Spatial accelerates the efficient industrial application of 3D additive manufacturing. This area of expertise represents another strong partnership for our organization and its members."
