Divergent 3D, the inventor of a software-hardware platform enabled by metal 3D printing for complex structures such as cars, has entered into a strategic development partnership with metal 3D printing equipment manufacturer SLM Solutions Group.

Divergent 3D aims to transform the economics and environmental impact of designing and manufacturing complex structures such as automobiles. The objective is to build lighter, structurally safe, more cost-efficient and environmentally responsible automobiles.

Under the agreement, SLM Solutions Group will work closely with Divergent to develop specific hardware and software that will enable scaling of the Divergent Manufacturing Platform to high-volume production of vehicle structures. According to the partners, this relationship will accelerate the commercial development of each companies’ technologies and revenue growth.

“By working together with Divergent, we can help to provide manufacturers with the tools to build more profitable, innovative and environmentally sustainable vehicles while dramatically reducing manufacturing capital cost and providing almost unlimited design flexibility,” says Hans-Joachim Ihde, chairman of the supervisory board and founder of SLM Solutions Group.
