Broadliner ALSO further expands its range of products and solutions for 3D printing in Germany and the Netherlands, with three new software products.

VoxelDance Additive and VoxelDance Tango are powerful software for 3D print data preparation. VoxelDance Additive is ideal for industrial technologies such as SLM, SLA, SLS and DLP. It covers vertical applications including rapid prototyping, plastics and metals for dentistry, jewellery, healthcare or industrial moulds; VoxelDance Tango is a trending product in LCD/DLP world especially among high-end consumer marketing and dental industry (resin-based).

They are obsessed with the idea of improving applications through algorithms.

ParaMatters offers a digital manufacturing software platform DMCP (Digital Manufacturing Control Processing) that provides digital factories with an enterprise software platform that focuses on four core areas of software capabilities: Material management integrated with design and topology optimisation, additive software with additive workflow, and inspection capabilities that provide closed loop processing for design and additive manufacturing enabling a factory to build better products. Today ParaMatters supports many verticals from dental/medical to aerospace and industrial and offers customers individual products that will integrate into the (DMCP) platform. This gives Digital Factories the opportunity to grow with modular software solutions that are building blocks for digital factory operations. Each of the standalone products can be used independently and added to the DMCP (Digital Manufacturing Control Processing) framework as needed. ParaMatters is a perfect solution for digital factory operations looking to reduce operating costs and build better products.

Both products are available from ALSO. In addition, the integration of 3YOURMIND's Agile PLM software helps companies identify printable AM parts from existing parts catalogues and provides technology and material recommendations for print production. The centralised platform makes collaboration easy by enabling AM experts and non-experts to propose AM use cases based on easy-to-understand part ratings and qualification data. As a result, companies can spend up to 80% less time identifying AM use cases, helping organisations build their AM part libraries faster than ever.

Stefan Mannhardt, European Solution Business Manager 3D Printing at ALSO, said: "3D printing has reached a new stage of development. Our comprehensive portfolio, which ranges from data generation to production and post-processing, demonstrates the maturity of the technology. The undisputed advantages in flexibility, speed and durability will drive much greater use."
