Impossible Objects Selects Dyndrite Software for Composite-Based AM Process after Highly Successful Proof of Concept
● Impossible Objects’ process for composite-based additive manufacturing driven by the company's proprietary software will now be integrated with Dyndrite’s ADK. ● Early evaluations of the Dyndrite software delivered substantial time and cost savings to the machine and materials company.
DETROIT, May 17, 2022 RAPID+TCT. Dyndrite™, providers of the core Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE) and Application Development Kit (ADK) designed to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software today announced that Impossible Objects, a 3D printer and materials company pioneering advancement of composites in additive manufacturing, has chosen Dyndrite software to power the software driving its composite-based additive manufacturing (CBAM) process, following a highly successful proof-of-concept trial.
Early Experiments with Dyndrite Net 95% Time Savings
During its evaluation, Impossible Objects integrated Dyndrite’s ADK with its own proprietary software to drive its CBAM production process. Unique to Impossible Objects, the CBAM process pairs carbon fiber and fiberglass parts with Nylon and PEEK. It delivers production parts automatically, outshining hand layup production times while being 60% lighter than traditional parts.
With the Dyndrite’s ADK, Impossible Objects created an automated CAD-to-print workflow with a build time ten times faster than before, reduced manual labor by 90% and improved build block use by 20%.
“Committing to Dyndrite software was an easy choice to make at this point,” said Robert Swartz, CEO, Impossible Objects. “Two weeks into our initial project, manual build prep went from three hours down to a few minutes as we automated with the Dyndrite tools. 3D data processing benchmarks dropped from 56 minutes to 5 minutes, so that the entire four-hour process is now completed in less than 10 minutes, a 95% reduction in time.”
The Dyndrite ACE is the world’s first GPU-powered geometry engine geared toward the needs of the digital manufacturing industry. Machine and materials companies such as Impossible Objects use the Dyndrite technology to create build prep apps, qualify toolpathing strategies and material parameters, and scale to production.
“It’s always exciting when forward-thinking companies like Impossible Objects discover what Dyndrite can do for them,” said Harshil Goel, CEO and Founder, Dyndrite. “They are exactly the kind of innovative AM company that we target as we continue to develop our technology. We can’t wait to see where they’ll take it next.”
