Engine for AM is a cloud based solution for the production of complex geometry in additive manufacturing. Developed with every stage in mind, we’re introducing a simplified workflow that makes the design, conversion and results, easier, faster and better.
Engine processes line geometry and converts this directly to machine toolpaths (.CLI) without the need for a discrete mesh representation (so long STL). You can send data to Engine directly from supported CAD environments via plugins, or by writing directly to our open .ARCH specification.
Engine has been developed from the ground up through progressive in-field testing across a range of laser based AM systems. As well as general toolpaths, we also provide specific machine and material optimisations that can greatly improve the resolution and build speeds of complex geometries.
We’ve developed Engine as a platform for delivering architectured materials to designers using AM. With our CAD plugins you will be able to pick and choose from a range of architectured materials and implement them onto volumetric designs.
