Meteor Inkjet Ltd, leading provider of industrial inkjet electronics, software, tools and services, and Dyndrite, providers of the core accelerated computing engine used to create digital manufacturing hardware and software generation, expand their collaboration with the announcement of Meteoryte, a 3D software tool that simplifies the development and adoption of inkjet technology for additive manufacturing applications.
Developers of industrial inkjet 3D systems, especially those just starting out, face hardware, software, and hardware challenges. In some cases, software challenges can be solved by adopting open-source, off-the-shelf tools, but when these tools lack sufficient functionality or cannot deliver the performance required for production, Meteoryte presents an ideal solution. Built with the Dyndrite Application Development Kit, Meteoryte offers builders of additive manufacturing systems a basic set of tools for the early stages of machine development. With an easy-to-use 3D geometry manipulation interface, Meteoryte features include:
Ability to import 3D meshes and geometries
Easy manipulation of geometry (moving, rotating and scaling)
A 3D window for viewing the construction area
Slicing up to 1200 dots per inch (dpi)
Production of monochrome images for machine input
“Additive manufacturing machines that require jet printheads are becoming increasingly popular. Through the software, our goal is to empower machine builders and improve their success rate, while reducing their time to market,” said Harshil Goel, CEO of Dyndrite Corporation. “Our mission is to provide tools that create new tools. Meteoryte powered by Dyndrite is a perfect example of a tool helping downstream customers with an accelerated path to success.
Clive Ayling, Managing Director of Meteor, comments: “Developing and implementing an industrial inkjet system can be challenging, and new 3D applications and businesses are constantly emerging. Meteor’s scalable data path solutions for all major printheads, combined with Meteoryte, will enable our OEM customers to harness the power of inkjet for 3D and additive manufacturing applications by dramatically reducing costs. , delays and development risks.
