DETROIT, MI, USA, May 19, 2022 – Rapid+TCT – Dyndrite, providers of the GPU-accelerated computation engine used to create next generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, announced today that Azul 3D has selected Dyndrite’s application development kit (ADK) to pair with its High Area Rapid Printing (HARP) technology to power its LAKE printers.
Azul 3D’s LAKE printers produce parts from a wide palette of materials over large areas at production speeds, with throughput dramatically outpacing that of the competition and approaching yields that rival injection molding. This breakthrough comes from Azul 3D’s HARP technology.
For the first time, the bottleneck of 3D printing is not on the printer. Azul 3D, working with Dyndrite, will create internal and customer-facing software apps, “Powered by Dyndrite,” that help speed the front end process, including controlling image generation and compensations as well as offering production-oriented features such as repeatable build automation–all without having to reveal Azul’s IP outside of its organization.
“The more we talked to Azul 3D, the more everyone could see Dyndrite was a perfect fit for their production LAKE machines,” said Harshil Goel, Dyndrite CEO and founder. “Dyndrite gives Azul 3D the horsepower along with the features they need to power their machines while providing room to accelerate their materials and unique process development. For us, it also demonstrates just how far we are pushing the software in 3D printing given the sheer volume of fully customized parts that can be made on HARP-based machines.”
Innovative machine builders like Azul 3D with data-rich, production-oriented systems require a high-performance software environment that can easily handle the massive data payload required to drive their systems. The Dyndrite Engine and ADK provide a new foundation to develop commonly needed applications for their systems such as build prep (Additive CAM), materials and process development, process qualification and calibration and automated production.
“HARP’s unprecedented print throughput of 12 vertical inches per hour and largest build volume requires the most powerful tools,” said Cody Petersen, Azul 3D CEO and board member. “We want to make sure the software we use can keep up with the demands of a larger, faster machine. Dyndrite’s speed and flexibility match our vision for taking additive manufacturing to new heights.”
The Dyndrite software solution will enable Azul 3D and its customers to increase production capacity and ensure the repeatability required for manufacturing.
The Azul 3D software, powered by Dyndrite, will be available to customers on LAKE printers later this year. Make sure to get your deposit in now.
About Azul 3D
Azul 3D is a leading-edge 3D printing company that is transforming the additive manufacturing industry. Initially invented and developed at Northwestern University, HARP technology can print 3D structures from a wide palette of materials. The initial printers based upon HARP are capable of manufacturing parts at production speeds, regardless of size, with a throughput dramatically outpacing its competitors and becoming competitive with injection molding. Azul 3D is enabling manufacturers to transition from prototyping to mass-manufacturing on a single, streamlined production platform. In combination with its suite of proprietary industrial-grade materials, it offers the opportunity for just-in-time mass production of a diverse set of highly customized products.
