Stratasys announced that Teton Simulation Software has joined its GrabCAD Software Partner Program. Teton utilizes the new GrabCAD DFAM Software Development Kit to help customers improve the reliability of additive manufacturing builds.
Teton is the sixth company to join the program.
“Our focus is on making it easier for advanced manufacturing initiatives to integrate 3D printing on the factory floor for maximum productivity,” said Paul Giaconia, Vice President of Software Products for Stratasys. “One of the keys to scaling 3D printing into production is to make it easy for engineers and designers to create and validate digital product designs using their CAD and simulation tools where additive manufacturing could provide the best solution. Adding Teton Simulation integrated with GrabCAD Print directly solves the design-for-additive-manufacturing challenge.”
The Laramie, Wyo.-based company’s SmartSlice application will be released as a plug-in to GrabCAD Print workflow software to make it easy to perform validation and optimization of print parameters for FDM 3D printing. The result is more confidence that parts meet functional and performance requirements, print as fast as possible, and minimize material waste.
“We are proud to be the first ‘design for additive manufacturing’ software partner to integrate with GrabCAD Print via the GrabCAD DFAM SDK,” said Teton Simulation CEO Doug Kenik. “Given Stratasys’ leadership position in polymer additive manufacturing, we see a very large opportunity to help customers design better parts. As additive manufacturing continues to push into production workflows, software will help to dramatically reduce cycle times and instill confidence that the printed part will function as desired. Stratasys’ commitment to develop a software ecosystem is a signal that the market is ready for additive manufacturing growth, and our SmartSlice is a key technology piece to help push the industry forward.”
