August 10, 2018 – Additive Innovation (AI), the software company specialized in additive manufacturing, presents a Partfinder software for 3D printing. The tool automatically searches large volumes of data in the additive manufacturing process for components suitable for 3D printing.
The "Partfinder" software analyzes 3D CAD data geometrically as well as on the basis of the construction history, PMI and metadata. The information thus obtained is stored in a database. Subsequently, the components are filtered according to the desired search criteria and presented in a clear list with a 3D graphic and all relevant information. Multiprocessor calculation allows extremely large data sets to be examined fully automatically, for the 3D printing potential.
The Partfinder provides a technology that enables companies to identify the potential for 3D printing to be future-proof in the manufacturing process.
As a certified distribution partner of HP, Additive Innovation provides the concentrated know-how around the additive series production of plastic parts as well as the Partfinder analysis as a service. AI also manufactures as an extended workbench using HP printers and certified materials.
