CADS Additive: Data Preparation Suite AM-Studio for seamless and integrated print workflows on EOS metal systems

CADS Additive, an Austrian manufacturer of high-performance AM process data preparation algorithms, services and software, announces a close collaboration with EOS, the world’s leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, by offering AM-Studio and AM-Studio for Creo® for EOS metal systems.

The well-established, integrated data preparation suite for transferring CAD data in AM-Machine code is already widely incorporated and approved in various design programs. The modern and visionary design workflow of the stand-alone and the PTC Creo® integrated version supports the user and operator interactively on his way to succeed in “First Time Right” from CAD to Part.

The core features of the AM-Studio and AM-Studio for Creo® Software are highly developed orientation, support and slicing- algorithms which perform under a minimum of controller memory use by a max. calculation speed. This revolutionary development is already a game changing turn-key innovation.

EOS is constantly expanding its customer base with the aim of expanding access to 3rd party services. With the EOS Developer Network (EDN) and the open software interfaces (APIs) EOS supports partners with a comprehensive framework. Rüdiger Herfrid, Product Line Manager Data Preparation of EOS states: “With the AM Suite, CADS delivers an additive manufacturing software solution based on EOS software that enables a continuous workflow in one single software tool. Import and export of geometry data is no longer necessary and changes can be made at the end of the data preparation workflow.”

He goes on to say: “Customers are more and more asking for integrated solutions that enable a seamless CAD to print workflow. Therefore it was a clear decision to collaborate with CADS to integrate EOSPRINT with the proven EOS exposure strategies directly into AM-Studio”.
Dr. Daniel Stadlmayr, Head of Operations at CADS Additive: “The open software architecture of EOSPRINT has made it very easy for us to integrate the proven exposure strategies with the corresponding parameters directly into our software suite, so that the user does not have to leave the AM-Studio user interface.”

“The direct access to EOS and their highly rated AM equipment is a milestone in our young history and symbolizes our success we have already gained in this partly dominated market.”, said Dr. Daniel Stadlmayr, Head of Operations at CADS Additive. “Being in a direct partnership with EOS is what makes CADS Additive a unique software solution provider in the AM environment”.
