Software developer Dyndrite is partnering with 3D printer manufacturer BCN3D to support new Viscous Lithography Manufacturing (VLM) technology with GPU-powered automated production software.
BCN3D introduced Viscous Lithography Manufacturing (VLM) in March 2022, a patented lithography-based 3D printing process that produces high-performance parts quickly and cost-effectively. VLM uses high-viscosity resins that are 50 times more viscous than the industry standard, enabling unprecedented thermal and mechanical properties.
Dyndrite offers an Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE) and Application Development Kit (ADK) for hardware and software vendors developing industry-focused digital manufacturing solutions. The GPU-powered toolkit supports extremely large data sets, high-resolution output and automatic print preparation.
The use of Dyndrite software is seen as critical to addressing the specific software challenges in automated AM production. BCN3D will begin shipping the first VLM systems to VLM Technology Adoption Program (TAP) participants later this quarter.
“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 presentation of this collaboration will take place at Rapid + TCT, May 2-4, 2023, at Dyndrite booth 3324 in Chicago. Both companies will explain the benefits of this collaboration and showcase VLM-manufactured 3D printed parts.
