CADS Additive, producer of high-performance additive manufacturing process data preparation algorithms and modules, and MachineWorks announce close collaboration on Polygonica mesh manipulation.

CADS Additive GmbH focuses on the development of time and performance critical services in additive manufacturing. The standalone AM-Studio is available for machine users to buy directly through a variety of channels and is based on the Additive.Core build processor for slicing, hatching and infill and the Additive.Support component for generating lightweight and structurally reliable support geometry. The CADS Additive components can also be found in the data preparation solutions of well-known software and hardware providers worldwide.

CADS Additive trusts in the functionality of Polygonica, whose mesh-healing and modelling technology has been used in CADS Additive’s product lines for several years. CADS Additive is now extending its focus to post-printing workflows for AM.

“We are really happy to have a close working relationship with MachineWorks and the Polygonica team.” says Dr. Daniel Stadlmayr, head of R&D at CADS Additive. “The proven algorithms underpinning Polygonica have given our engineers more time to innovate and address the specific requirements and challenges of high-end metal printing. Not only is our time to market shortened but we’ve produced better algorithms as a result. Being not only a customer but a partner is what makes the difference between MachineWorks and others.”

“We’ve loved working with the CADS team,” says Dr Fenqiang Lin, managing director of MachineWorks. “They are smart, fast and agile and, as with our other customers, meeting the continuously advancing requirements of high-end AM helps us keep Polygonica improving year after year.”
