Software Designed to Simplify Additive Manufacturing Process from 3D CAD Model to Printed Part

DP Technology has announced that the world premiere of the ESPRIT® Additive Suite will take place at EMO in September.

The ESPRIT® Additive Suite is a comprehensive 3D printing solution that delivers high levels of efficiency and accuracy, while simplifying the time-consuming additive manufacturing process into a few easy steps. The software delivers machine-optimized job files and complete control of the additive manufacturing process for both direct metal deposition machines and 3D powder bed fusion systems.

"This decade has been characterized by the widespread, mainstream use of 5-axis machining processes, but we are about to enter the decade of additive: within 10 years, we anticipate that 10 percent of machines will have additive capabilities," says Chuck Mathews, chief technology officer and executive vice president at DP Technology. "We are redefining the meaning of 'full-spectrum' with the ESPRIT® Additive Suite, which provides a new workflow and new process for a new class of machines, both additive and hybrid."

Direct Metal Deposition

For hybrid machine tools -- CNC machines with additive capabilities -- the ESPRIT® Additive app for direct metal deposition offers integrated programming and simulation for multi-tasking, multi-function, multi-channel additive and subtractive machine tools, all integrated within the ESPRIT® CAM system. Features of the ESPRIT® Additive Suite for direct metal deposition tools include:

3D Powder Bed Fusion

The ESPRIT® Additive app for 3D powder bed fusion systems is a versatile printer driver that supports the full process of additive manufacturing, from orienting the part and creating supports, to optimizing the build, slicing and nesting, to generating a job file. Features of the ESPRIT® Additive app for 3D powder bed fusion systems include:

Both the ESPRIT® Additive Suite apps for direct metal deposition machines and 3D powder bed systems feature the ability to work directly with native 3D CAD files.
