Discover the Dyndrite difference

Dyndrite’s Materials & Process Development for LPBF software includes advances not found elsewhere in the AM industry.

Multi-threaded CPU and GPU-driven performance

At the foundation of all of Dyndrite solutions lies the Dyndrite Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE). ACE is the world’s first multi-threaded, GPU-accelerated geometry kernel, providing a modern approach to computing that can handle whatever multi-gigabyte files and large part counts you give it—at screaming fast speeds.

3D volumetric segmentation

Dyndrite performs advanced analysis into parts via volumetric segmentation. With this approach, the system breaks up CAD geometry into 3D areas of interest instead of using the more common 2.5D layers—a method that often misses part features such as abrupt geometric changes, and can be unstable and error-prone. Dyndrite LPBF technology easily creates discrete zones in parts so you can develop a robust build strategy, resolving large and small features at the resolution of your machine. This leads to high throughput in thicker sections, reduces the need for complex supports, and enables you to work with new materials and special alloys.

Advanced toolpath control for better parts, faster

Dyndrite gives you control over laser parameters (focus, power, speed), toolpath geometric parameters, and toolpath sort order based on powder material, the layer height, gasflow, and the geometry being printed.

Native CAD files throughout the workflow

Materials & Process Development for LPBF works with native 3D CAD geometry so you can maintain the integrity of native CAD-based spline and B-rep data throughout the entire workflow while using metadata to automate your build preparation.

*  Dyndrite’s 3D volumetric segmentation surpasses current layer-by-layer-based Boolean toolpathing methods by using a voxel engine for advanced 3D geometric queries into a part. In the example above, the system detects thin features with 3D geometric queries, so that you can vary machine parameters across upskin, downskin, and thin feature regions.
