PostProcess Technologies’ Automat3D postprocessing software platform, powered by “agitation algorithms,” incorporates specially engineered hardware and chemistry for additive manufacturing processes and materials. The new release accommodates Direct Digital Thread for smart manufacturing. The software analyzes support and build structures for intelligent adaptation of the post-printing recipe to optimize support removal and surface finishing. According to the company, these features can increase throughput and reduce cycle time for consistent, customer-ready final parts, advancing AM operations by supporting scalability and the market drive toward mass customization.
