DP Technology, the parent company of the ESPRIT CAM system, has released a software called ESPRIT Additive for Powder Bed. Made specifically for the powder bed fusion market, the program comes as an add-in application for SolidWorks, a popular computer-aided design (CAD) program.

ESPRIT Additive for Powder Bed Fusion is compatible with any file supported by SolidWorks. One standout feature of the new software is the patented Part-to-Build. When preparing a part for manufacturing, the program automatically assigns exposure strategies based on simple inputs from the user.

ESPRIT Additive for Powder Bed Fusion also introduces a slicer with exceptional accuracy thanks to a parametric workflow model. Once the part is ready to slice, it may be imported to the job environment as many times as needed. The program is expected to save users time by improving consistency, repeatability and maintaining traceability by recording each step from the original 3D CAD file.
