- Dyndrite to power groundbreaking new high viscosity production-oriented Viscous Lithography Manufacturing (VLM™) technology
- Collaboration brings users high-performance end-use resin part printing with GPU-powered automated production software
- Delivers unparalleled productivity and automation for single and multi-material polymer parts
Seattle (WA) / Barcelona (Spain).- April 27th, 2023. Today Dyndrite™, providers of the GPU-accelerated computation engine used to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, and BCN3D, a 3D printing solutions manufacturer, have announced that the first generation of VLM systems will be powered by Dyndrite’s software. The collaboration promises to boost productivity and automation for VLM users and provide software for unlocking manufacturing autonomy. This collaboration is yet another example of how machine builders are using the Dyndrite Application Development Kit (ADK) for the development of software applications to drive their machine hardware.
BCN3D introduced Viscous Lithography Manufacturing (VLM)™ in March of 2022, a patented lithography-based 3D printing process that uses high viscosity resins to produce high-performance parts rapidly and affordably. Unlike other resin technologies, VLM can process resins 50 times more viscous than the industry standard, allowing formulations with a wider range of ingredients and modifiers to achieve previously unattainable thermal and mechanical properties. BCN3D partners with Arkema and Henkel to provide unique material properties and applications. To date over 500 companies have registered as early adopters through VLM Technology Adoption Program (VLM TAP).
Dyndrite provides an accelerated computation engine (ACE) and Application Development Kit (ADK) to hardware and software vendors creating industrial-focused digital manufacturing solutions. Its GPU-powered toolkit enables the creation of next-generation solutions that support extremely large datasets, provide high-resolution output, and automated print preparation. Its core environment provides Python APIs for scriptable Build Recipes and 3rd party app integration. A plug-in mechanism enables 3rd-party extensions to the Dyndrite base capabilities.
BCN3D, through its Technology Adoption Program, has gained significant insights into numerous multi-material, multi-property, and water-soluble applications, from experienced engineers across various industries. Specifically, those in manufacturing, automotive, 3D printing services, footwear, and dental are particularly interested in productivity applications provided by VLM and Dyndrite. Leveraging Dyndrite software is seen as crucial in addressing the specific software challenges faced in automated AM production.
During this quarter, BCN3D will commence dispatching the initial VLM systems to designated participants of the VLM TAP. In order to guarantee the most optimal ecosystem and a streamlined workflow, BCN3D researched leading software providers to control VLM units and placed their trust in the cutting-edge Dyndrite’s digital manufacturing software.
“BCN3D is thrilled to announce our collaboration with Dyndrite, which marks a momentous occasion for VLM. This step forward will enable customers of the Technology Adoption Program to precisely focus on productivity-oriented applications,” said Roger Antunez, General Manager of BCN3D. “By coupling this technology with Dyndrite’s advanced software, we believe it will grant manufacturers full control over every stage of their production process.”
“We’ve been following the VLM technology since the initial showcase, and have been excited about the possibilities. We created the Dyndrite ADK to help machine builders unlock the power of their process and rapidly bring new manufacturing solutions to market,” said Harshil Goel, founder and CEO, Dyndrite. “We are excited to see how the VLM technology will be productized with an eye towards manufacturing productivity and multi-material applications. BCN3D is about to generate some very interesting IP and we are excited to be the maths engine that plays a part in unlocking it.”
The first official showcase of this joint venture will take place at the Rapid + TCT event on May 2-4, 2023, at Dyndrite Booth 3324, McCormick Place — West Building, Chicago, IL. Both companies will explain and illustrate the benefits of this collaboration while showcasing 3D printed parts made with VLM.
Dyndrite’s mission is to fundamentally change how geometry is created, transformed and transmitted on a computer. Our Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE) is the world’s first (geometry agnostic), multi-threaded, GPU-accelerated Geometry Engine. We create and license tools that give companies the power, freedom and control necessary to deliver on the potential of digital manufacturing.
Dyndrite democratizes access to a hyper-scalable, geometry-agnostic set of digital manufacturing software tools that deliver eyebrow-raising performance. The company’s team of mathematicians, computer scientists, and engineers exists to help our partners and customers solve the toughest geometry, compute and automation problems so they can deliver AM production at scale. We aim to ignite their purpose.
Investors include Gradient Ventures, Google’s AI-focused Investment Fund and former Autodesk CEO Carl Bass. The company was founded in 2015 and is headquartered in Seattle, WA. Dyndrite was named a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer for 2021.
