Dyndrite Developer Council Grows to 15 Members With Industry Giants HP, NVIDIA, EOS, and Renishaw On Board, New Members Reflect the Importance of Simulation in Next-Gen Hardware and Software

Monday, November 18, 2019

November 18, 2019 – Formnext Hall 12.1 Booth G131, Frankfurt. Dyndrite™ Corporation ('den-drite'), the world leader in GPU-based high performance Additive Manufacturing software, today announced five new additions to the Dyndrite Developer Council, bringing the industry working group to a total of 15 members. The goal of the Developer Council is to help evolve industry standards, create seamless customer experiences by cross-leveraging tools, and elevate the industry as a whole.

The new members of the Dyndrite Developer Council are: 3D Systems®(NYSE:DDD) (Rock Hill, SC), ANSYS® (Canonsburg, PA), Altair Engineering® (Troy, MI), ExOne™ (North Huntingdon, PA), and SLM® Solutions (Lübeck, Germany).

The new members join current Developer Council members: Aconity3D™, AON3D™, Aurora Labs™, Desktop Metal™, EOS™, HP®, Impossible Objects™, NVIDIA®, Plural®, and Renishaw®. These industry leaders are working together, providing their guidance and technical insight on the future development of the Dyndrite ecosystem and roadmap, to push the boundaries of Additive Manufacturing.

The Dyndrite Developer Council is a central component of the Dyndrite Developer Program which provides tools, resources and community for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), independent software vendors (ISVs), service providers and educators developing for the Dyndrite platform.

The Council’s work empowers developers on a broad scale to creatively leverage the Dyndrite Accelerated Computational Engine (ACE) geometry kernel, Additive Manufacturing Toolkit (AMT), Python API, and member solutions in defining best practices and creating the next-generation of additive tools and workflows.

“Dyndrite’s mission is to build a strong, diverse ecosystem, bringing powerful new Additive Manufacturing solutions to the market. We believe a connected community of best-in-class solutions creates a vibrant digital nervous system which will foster innovation and deliver value to customers of all disciplines,” said Shawn Hopwood, Dyndrite Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Developer Relations. “The addition to the council of industry pioneers and established simulation vendors shows the unique value Dyndrite brings to the additive landscape. We welcome our new members and look forward to their insights and market perspectives as we continue to champion the user and elevate the industry for all.”
