With Oqton and Riven, two new partners have been integrate with Stratasys’ Grab CAD Additive Manufacturing Platform adding manufacturing operating system and new product introduction 3D workflow software options.

The Grab CAD Software Partner Program is part of the recently introduced Additive Manufacturing Platform, which integrates applications and third-party software partners via the Software Development Kit (SDK). The open and enterprise-ready platform enables two-way connectivity between 3D printers, additive manufacturing and enterprise applications, and broader Industry 4.0 infrastructure.

Oqton provides users with a machine-agnostic, cloud-based software platform that leverages artificial intelligence to automate repetitive tasks and utilizes intelligent IoT capabilities to automate the end-to-end additive manufacturing workflow across and beyond the production floor, including order tracking, scheduling, latticing, build preparation, and slicing. The solution, purposely built for additive manufacturing, allows users to easily create live dashboards and automated reports to optimise their manufacturing process so that their product can go to market quicker.

“Our solution empowers humans and machines to work together seamlessly — which is the key difference between manufacturing success and manufacturing failure,” said Benjamin Schrauwen, CEO at Oqton. “We’ve made it very easy to combine and visualize data from different machines, from different manufacturers, and across different technologies, and by partnering with Stratasys we can help our shared customers achieve automated manufacturing success.”

Also joining the Grab CAD Partner Program is Riven, an open cloud software company specializing in 3D reality intelligence that accelerates volume production of high-accuracy, end-use additive manufactured parts. Riven’s software, using 3D reality data from scanners and proprietary algorithms, allows engineering and manufacturing teams to cut iterations and time-to-part while improving the customer experience. Riven has introduced Warp-Adapted-Model (WAM) capability, which enables printed production parts across additive manufacturing technologies, including FDM, powder bed fusion and stereolithography, to be 2-10 times more accurate than parts printed from CAD. WAM scales from singular high-value parts to series production and enables exciting new end-use applications.

James Page, founder and CTO of Riven, commented, “Together with Stratasys we recognize how critical it is that production parts are delivered quickly and to spec in order for additive to reach its full potential. Riven’s next-generation predictive, machine learning technology, enables customers to realize higher part quality and reduced time to production deliveries.”
