Software Essentials


Software is essential to scale Additive Manufacturing (AM) from prototype to production. This includes software to manage 3D printers, consumables, and quality assurance in addition to novel workflows at different levels of scale. To reach these ends, Stratasys has introduced the GrabCAD AM platform—an open and enterprise-ready software platform that enables manufacturers to manage production-AM operations and to build new applications via a Software Development Kit (SDK). The platform aims to support 3D printing at production volume, and this requires new software-driven operational capabilities, such as the ability to manage fleets of 3D printers in different locations, monitor output quality, automate materials management, and integrate AM within the broader production enterprise. This emphasis on software supports the idea that an open and enterprise-ready software platform is needed to enable manufacturers to manage production-scale AM operations.

Comprehensive, Scalable, and Open


The GrabCAD AM platform consists of more than 38…
