HP has chosen Dyndrite’s accelerated geometry Kernel to help power its next-generation, cloud- and edge-based digital manufacturing solutions for additive manufacturing (AM) hardware and software. The collaboration is designed to bring improved performance, efficiency, automation and extensibility to HP’s growing portfolio of digital manufacturing products. This agreement is said to demonstrate HP’s commitment to leading innovation in three key areas — quality, performance and automation.
“From the very beginning, HP recognized the potential of Dyndrite’s kernel technology. As the first member of the Dyndrite Development Council, we quickly identified areas where Dyndrite’s innovative technology could be applied to solve the larger challenges facing the AM industry,” says Ryan Palmer, global head of software, data and automation, HP 3D printing and digital manufacturing. “We are committed to advancing our digital manufacturing platform capabilities and this strategic collaboration with Dyndrite is an exciting next step on the journey.”
By marrying HP’s end-to-end manufacturing expertise with cutting-edge ideas on how to improve the AM and DM industries, Palmer and his team are working to define, develop and deliver a manufacturing software platform capable of powering the digital manufacturing factories of the future.
“The promise of AM is to deliver customized, personalized and on-demand 3D-printed parts on an industrial scale. For this to happen, the AM software industry must evolve,” says Harshil Goel, Dyndrite founder and CEO. “Dyndrite’s mission has been to accelerate this change. Our collaboration with HP is intended to dramatically scale the impact our technology will have in the AM and DM industries.”
The Dyndrite Kernel is designed to enable the development of high-performance, scalable and extensible AM hardware and software solutions. It features a multithreaded and GPU-powered hybrid geometry core; a scalable modern computation architecture; and an accessible Python programming interface. The company says that Dyndrite’s built-in extensibility enables a variety of plug-ins for simulation, MES, OEM toolpath development and more.
This new strategic partnership between Dyndrite and HP is the culmination of a working relationship that began when HP signed on as the inaugural member of the Dyndrite Developer Council — a group of 3D printer manufacturers and software developers that includes 3D Systems, Aconity3D, Altair Engineering, Ansys, Aon3D, Aurora Labs, Desktop Metal, EOS, ExOne, HP, Impossible Objects, Nvidia, Plural, Renishaw and SLM Solutions.
Glasses work, but both the product and purchase experience could be made better. Fitz Frames aims to help, with custom glasses featuring 3D printed frames manufactured in Youngstown, Ohio.
If you’re going to use AM for production, the subtractive steps deserve as much consideration as the additive cycle.
Boyce Technologies was already a leader in manufacturing communications devices, but 3D printing and a partnership with BigRep have helped it remain competitive—first through prototyping, and now in production.
