3D printing company Stratasys announced the acquisition of quality assurance software company Riven. The Berkeley-based start-up has been a Stratasys connectivity software partner and its cloud-based software solution will now be fully integrated into the Grab CAD Additive Manufacturing Platform.
The cloud-based software developed by US-company Riven helps customers quickly inspect, diagnose, and automatically correct deviations between CAD files and actual printed parts, resulting in more accurate parts at a lower overall cost. The start-up has now been acquired by Stratasys.
“We believe that by identifying state of the art technology platforms and cultivating them under the Stratasys umbrella, companies like Riven can add incremental growth engines to our platform. By integrating Riven’s offerings into our Grab CAD software platform, we will enable more manufacturing customers to adopt Stratasys solutions for end-use parts production,” said Stratasys Vice President of Global Software Shaul Samara. “This important functionality will help ensure production-scale parts are 3D printed accurately and can be inspected quickly within a closed-loop additive manufacturing process. The acquisition of Riven is another example of how we are working to ensure we are providing our customers with complete solutions across the entire additive manufacturing digital thread.”
A new version in testing uses artificial intelligence to pre-adjust the models automatically. Parts inspection in particular can be a significant bottleneck in the production process, in many cases creating delays of weeks or months. By integrating Riven’s software into a closed-loop 3D printing process, Stratasys wants to be able to help its customers scale their shipments of 3D printed end-use parts while reducing waste through fewer iterations to improve sustainability.
The acquisition, which closed in October 2022, included all intellectual property associated with Warp Adaptive Modeling (WAM) and Predictive WAM (PWAM). Members of the Riven team will be integrated into the Stratasys Software business unit.
