New software makes it possible to print thinner goods
Wematter presents a whole new software, which adapts Wematter Gravity’s built-in system to handle thinner goods and allows printing finer models with higher precision.
Wematter’s could software Deep Space analyzes 3D models to detect geometries that are thin or hard to print. The software then adapts the machine for the tougher task. These improvements make it possible to increase print performance by almost 200 %. The resulting efficiency allows Wematter to offer existing customers print details and walls that measure under 1 mm.
The software has the ability to detect geometries where, for example, the standard laser diameter is too large to print a certain thickness. By first analyzing the problem in both 3D and 2D, Deep Space then adapts the instructions to the 3D-printer Gravity to be able to handle tougher geometries.
The advantage of a cloud service and a 3D-printer as a Service
Wematter has already upgraded all customer machines with the help of automatic remote updates. The upgrades mean that Wematter can once again show the value of renting a 3D printer instead of purchasing one. By continuously increasing the performance over the rental period, customer satisfaction increases, which often leads to a higher level of powder consumption (the Gravity’s printing material), which Wematter then can reinvest for future product updates.
Wematter manufactures advanced office-sized selective laser sintering 3D printers. The company exists to accelerate the move towards additive manufacturing by lowering barriers to entry. Its innovative 3D-printing SLS technology lets companies quickly prototype ideas, which increases overall design and engineering efficiency.
Wematter’s Nordic roots suffuse the company’s creative cycle. The team focuses on balancing user experience, ease of use, sustainability, and performance in all of its activities. The resulting quality and reliability are testaments to not just a client focus but to corporate responsibility in the face of a changing environment and industrial landscape.
Wematter attracts top customers like Siemens, Volvo, and Husqvarna. The company was founded by design engineers working with FDM SLA and FDM 3D printers, injection molding, and CNC-milling. Since its inception in 2014, Wematter has delivered 3D printers and 3D-printed components to car manufacturers, hospitals, and aerospace clients.
