ASX-listed Aurora Labs (ASX:A3D) has partnered with HP to conduct a joint investigation of HP software capability to generate 3D print files that are compatible with A3D printers.
HP’s new Universal Build Manager leverages HP software and data innovation, and the Dyndrite Accelerated Geometry Engine, to enable simplified and automated build preparation across multiple additive manufacturing technologies.
A3D said it recognises the potential value in combining HP’s Universal Bid Manager with Rapid Manufacturing Technology to optimise print speeds and access the compatibility of the solution with its RMP-1 printer software to determine the potential for further joint development and implementation opportunities.
The HP Universal Build Manager Powered by Dyndrite aims to bring increased productivity and efficiency, as well as automation to additive build management for leading 3D printing processes.
“Automation, software, and data are key to delivering mass customisation of parts and unlocking the full potential of large-scale additive manufacturing,” HP general manager and global head of printing and digital manufacturing Ramon Pastor said.
“We are committed to relentlessly improving our capabilities and helping customers optimise and automate workflows, enable compelling new applications, and produce sustainable, high quality parts at scale.”
The solution is said to be the first of its kind, which leverages proprietary HP software and data innovation, and the Dyndrite Accelerated Geometry Engine.
The new additive manufacturing build manager takes advantage of the GPU-accelerated processing and Python scriptability inherent to Dyndrite’s engine.
HP personalisation and industrial business global head of software, data and automation Ryan Palmer said the new solution has been designed to improve the additive technician’s efficiency, productivity, and quality, enabling mass-personalisation, complex workflow automation, and scalability and extensibility in both manually driven and automated workflows.
“We are addressing software challenges in the additive industry that have prevented it from becoming mainstream and are providing capabilities to help customers accelerate the journey to digital manufacturing,” Palmer said.
“The new HP Universal Build Manager simplifies, automates, and delivers a digital-first approach to manufacturing. This solution will enable customers to explore new areas of complexity and value, push the boundaries of sustainable production, and automate critical steps in their digital workflow.”
HP has also introduced new digital HP 3D Factory Services to provide customers with facilities and equipment analysis, staffing and training, and help implement production processes.
In addition, HP announced the new HP Automatic Unpacking Station, developed in partnership with Rösler Group’s AM Solutions, to enable greater automation for post processing, giving customers more efficiency across the entire additive manufacturing workflow.
