3D Printing Standards: ADAXIS Joins the 3MF Consortium

The 3MF consortium is made up of companies from the 3D printing and 3D CAD industries and aims to define a standardized format that optimizes additive manufacturing workflows. Now ADAXIS has announced that it has joined the consortium as an associate member.

The 3MF format, designed by the consortium founded in 2015, includes all necessary model, material and property information to ensure data integrity and prevent fragmentation.

ADAXIS is committed to optimizing the 3MF format specifically for robotic additive manufacturing. In doing so, the company plans to drive advancements in additive manufacturing technology and open new opportunities for the industry through collaboration and knowledge sharing.

“Today, the ability to create high-quality multi-axis tool paths can heavily rely on the input 3D model. A standardized and capable file format will make it easier to share and extract vital information about the 3D surfaces, optimal manufacturing sequence, and materials.”, said Emil Johansson, Co-founder of ADAXIS.

Duann Scott, Director of the 3MF Consortium states: “As additive manufacturing processes and applications mature, communicating design and manufacturing intent with a representation of the surface only, is no longer enough to accurately, or reliably produce results the machines are capable of. ADAXIS brings yet another dimension to the problem with their multi axis Robot Additive Manufacturing software. By joining the 3MF Consortium ADAXIS will be critical in helping to shape and implement data in a standardized format to include other information such as manufacturing process, materials and more. We look forward to working with ADAXIS to help their customers, and the manufacturing industry at large through open source collaboration.”
