Sophisticated Scan Path and Process Control for Better Material Properties

Success in metal printing hinges on precise control of laser parameters (power, speed, focus), toolpath geometric parameters (see toolpathing API), and toolpath sorting based on factors like powder material, layer height, gas flow, and the specific geometry being printed.

Why Dyndrite for your material and process workflow?

Regardless of the process, the primary objective is to enhance the efficiency, quality, and variety of producible parts and materials by applying precise compensations and toolpath parameters. These compensations involve adjusting laser settings (such as scan velocity, focus, and power), geometric parameters (like hatch distance, offset distance, and stripe width), and the sort order of exposure.

Dyndrite offers a user-friendly set of APIs that allow you to create scanpath geometry based on the part's specific location, apply customized laser settings to this geometry, and meticulously control the sequence in which the laser interacts with the geometry. This empowers you to devise your own recipes based on geometry, which can be employed on a layer-by-layer basis, either per feature or within a designated area in the geometry. Dyndrite provides comprehensive control over your geometry vector process, ensuring effective first-time prints, accelerated production rates, and superior part quality.

Achieving the optimal compensation for a particular part necessitates advanced analysis of the geometry. Depending on the part's internal depth and the angle of the nearest surface, different laser and geometric toolpath parameters may be required. For example, you might choose to expose the core of a part only every fourth layer with high hatch distance and laser power to maximize productivity, reduce porosity, and enhance material properties. Simultaneously, you may decide to expose specific downskins every other layer with lower laser power and hatch spacing to prevent distortion, dross, and interactions with part powder. Finally, the outer contours may need to be exposed every layer to achieve the desired surface finish.

Dyndrite facilitates this advanced analysis through GPU-accelerated volumetric segmentation. This segmentation enables you to break down any geometry into distinct areas of interest, as indicated by different colors. Subsequently, you can adjust laser and geometric toolpath parameters for each color.

Dyndrite's volumetric geometric feature detection empowers users to precisely define custom build recipes and process parameters to achieve desired results.

Compensate for machine variability

Hardware and material compensations refer to machine-specific adjustments within the manufacturing process, which are addressed during the qualification and calibration process. These adjustments pertain to the settings of the 3D metal printer, taking into consideration the unique characteristics of each machine and the specific materials in use.

For instance, individual machines may exhibit variations, necessitating the application of custom scaling to parts depending on their location within the printing volume.

Compensations are based on:

  • Hardware (gas flow/bed conditions and part location)
  • Material (powder)
  • Geometry of the part itself

Discover the Dyndrite difference

Dyndrite’s Materials and Process Development for LPBF software includes advances not found elsewhere in the additive manufacturing 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 for industrial 3D printing. It provides 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) and toolpath geometric parameters. It also lets you manage 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. Maintain the integrity of native CAD-based spline and B-rep data throughout the entire workflow while using metadata to automate your workflow.

*Dyndrite's 3D volumetric segmentation goes beyond conventional layer-by-layer Boolean toolpathing techniques. It employs a voxel engine for sophisticated 3D geometric analysis of a part. In the provided example, the system identifies thin features through 3D geometric analysis, allowing you to adjust machine parameters for upskin, downskin, and thin feature regions accordingly.
