Hexagon and Raytheon Technologies have partnered to deliver a simulation tool that will enable evaluation and optimisation of metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes through the prediction of thermal history and defects at the laser path and powder layer scale.

Hexagon has partnered with Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), a national research and development (R&D) centre, to provide software that will help meet a Swedish initiative to advance the use of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies and accelerate the adoption of innovative and sustainable processes in European industry.

Relationship builds on SLM Solutions’ Open Architecture Initiative, allows Dyndrite software to directly write laser toolpath and parameters to control either single or multi-optic systems, and enables SLM® customers to design advanced materials, carry out process development, and build strategies that fit their unique needs.

Companies to create proof-of-concept allowing Dyndrite software to directly generate low-level scanning trajectories for use with Novanta hardware * Allows Dyndrite software to directly write advanced laser toolpath to better control single or multi-optic Novanta laser systems * Enables Novanta customers to make full use of advanced capabilities of its Firefly 3D and Lightning™ II solutions * Opens up “Materials and Parameter” developers to develop highly advanced strategies to unlock improvements in material microstructures

Incorporates Open Vector Format file format within Dyndrite App Dev Kit. Allows Dyndrite users to directly write OVF files containing laser toolpath, parameter metadata and layer by layer streaming capability for securely driving OVF compatible single or multi-optic systems. Enables multiple different part segmentation scan strategies for optimal parameter assignments, contour parameter controls, and path planning for unique machine configurations.

*Developer-focused 3D tool speeds development and adoption of jetting within additive manufacturing *Spurs development of robust, optimized and/or novel jetting use cases *Brings new capabilities to the market, in head, controller, and software usage

*Development effort to focus on reversing the, “Hardware is outpacing the Software” trend in additive manufacturing *Collaboration to leverage Dyndrite’s toolpath API to calculate, create, and assign sophisticated laser process parameters based on volumetric analysis of 3D part geometry *Resulting high resolution data capable of driving SCANLAB based LPBF machines to their highest potential

In April 2022, the CO-VERSATILE project launched its innovative Digital Technopole. Since then, this cloud-based single-entry point has flourished and evolved, paving the way for better collaboration and resource sharing across Europe.
