3D printing company Stratasys has announced the acquisition of quality assurance software company Riven. The Berkeley-based startup is a Stratasys connectivity software partner and its cloud-based software solution will now be fully integrated with the Grab CAD additive manufacturing platform.

Riven’s Warp Adaptive Modeling software automatically inspects, diagnoses, and corrects discrepancies between CAD files and 3D printed parts.

Cloud-based software developed by US-based Riven helps customers automatically inspect, diagnose, and correct discrepancies between CAD files and actual printed parts, resulting in more accurate parts at a lower overall cost. The start-up has just been acquired by Stratasys.

“We believe that by identifying cutting-edge technology platforms and cultivating them under the Stratasys umbrella, companies like Riven can add additional growth engines to our platform. By integrating Riven’s offerings into our Grab CAD software platform, we will enable more manufacturer customers to adopt Stratasys solutions for the production of end-use parts,” said Shaul Samara, vice president of Stratasys, GlobalSoftware. “This important feature will help ensure that production-scale parts are 3D printed accurately and can be inspected quickly as part of a closed-loop additive manufacturing process. The acquisition of Riven is another example of how we are working to ensure that we provide our customers with complete solutions across the entire digital thread of additive manufacturing.

A new version in testing uses artificial intelligence to automatically pre-adjust models. Part inspection in particular can be a significant bottleneck in the production process, in many cases leading to delays of weeks or months. By integrating Riven’s software into a closed-loop 3D printing process, Stratasys wants to be able to help customers scale their shipments of 3D printed end-use parts while reducing waste through less waste. iterations to improve durability.

The acquisition, which was completed in October 2022, included all intellectual property associated with Warp Adaptive Modeling (WAM) and Predictive WAM (PWAM). Members of the Riven team will be integrated into the Stratasys Software business unit.
