Renishaw’s QuantAM file preparation software tool prepares models from STL data for production in its additive manufacturing systems. The tool integrates into the machine control software and enables users to accurately and quickly review all build files for Renishaw machines, including those from third-party packages. The software can also be used to guide the design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) process.

QuantAM accepts CAD exports in the form of STL data and locks process parameters for each build to the CAD model data for consistent processing and traceability. Users can orient the part, apply support anchors, position multiple components and check the build simulation before export within the software. It is possible to review the geometry and laser tool path slice by slice, as well as discrete laser exposure within each slice. A material development module with CSV data import enables importing materials development arrays, and the software supports copying and editing materials files.
