3DXpert Software Now Available Through Altair Partner AllianceSeptember 1, 2022
Oqton has added 3DXpert and 3DXpert DfAM (Design for Additive Manufacturing) software as part of the Altair Partner Alliance (APA). The all-in-one software for industrial AM enables Altair’s customers to prepare, optimize and 3D-print high-quality parts quickly by streamlining the workflow from design to printing, according to Oqton officials. Members of the APA can download 3DXpert and 3DXpert DfAM on demand as with other APA partner solutions. These are available as part of the Mechanical Engineer, Multiphysics/Mechatronics Engineer and Enterprise suites within the Altair Units license groups.
3DXpert helps users quickly and efficiently transition from a 3D CAD model to a high-quality, production-grade 3D-printed part, according to Oqton officials, who note that it can be seamlessly integrated into existing CAD/CAM workflows sue to its advanced solid modeling capabilities. States software benefits include build preparation in a true CAD environment; optimized design structures; minimized manufacturing costs; and expedited design-to-manufacturing process.
“3DXpert software maintains the integrity of native CAD files, which reduces the opportunity for errors often seen with STL data,” says Roy Sterenthal, Oqton vice president of software. “Additionally, it adds capabilities to work with implicit modeling and conformal lattice structures that rely on mathematical functions to design extremely complex geometries, enabling users to create novel parts not possible with traditional technologies. We’re excited about bringing 3DXpert and 3DXpert DfAM directly to Altair’s customers.”
Adds Myriam Mouyal, Altair vice president of strategic relationships: “3DXpert is manufacturing software, built on a CAD Kernel, but handles implicit representations as well as mesh and voxel data. This allows for a frictionless implementation in any kind of AM design and production process. We’re happy to expand our partnership with Oqton, enabling APA users to reduce their print failure rates with parametric build preparation, and integrated process simulation.”
