The GrabCAD Software Partner Program is part of the recently introduced GrabCAD additive manufacturing platform, which integrates GrabCAD applications and third-party GrabCAD software partners via the GrabCAD Software Development Kit (SDK). The open, enterprise-ready platform enables two-way connectivity between 3D printers, additive manufacturing and enterprise applications, as well as a broader Industry 4.0 infrastructure.

“The new GrabCAD Software Partners give us the ability to increase the number of technologies available through the GrabCAD AM platform and enable us to support our customers’ goals by creating a connected ecosystem that supports additive manufacturing at scale. ,” said Paul Giaconia, Vice President of Software Products for Stratasys. “We welcome these two new partners and look forward to continuing to grow this program and supporting our customers’ Industry 4.0 initiatives.”

Oqton provides users with a cloud-based, machine-agnostic software platform that leverages artificial intelligence to automate repetitive tasks and uses smart IoT capabilities to automate the end-to-end additive manufacturing workflow across and beyond production, including order tracking, scheduling, trussing, construction preparation and slicing. The solution, specifically designed for additive manufacturing, allows users to easily create live dashboards and automated reports to optimize their manufacturing process so their product can get to market faster.

“Our solution enables humans and machines to work together seamlessly – which is the key difference between manufacturing success and failure,” said Benjamin Schrauwen, CEO of Oqton. “We have made it easy to combine and visualize data from different machines, different manufacturers and different technologies, and by partnering with Stratasys, we can help our joint customers achieve automated manufacturing success.”

Riven, an open cloud software company specializing in 3D reality intelligence that accelerates volume production of high-precision, end-use additively manufactured parts, is also joining the GrabCAD Partner Program. Riven’s software, using 3D reality data from proprietary scanners and algorithms, enables engineering and manufacturing teams to reduce iterations and manufacturing times while improving the customer experience. Riven introduced Warp-Adapted-Model (WAM™) capability, which enables production parts to be printed through additive manufacturing technologies, including FDM®, powder bed fusion and stereolithography, to be 2 to 10 times more accurate than parts printed from CAD. WAM extends from single high-value parts to mass production and enables exciting new end-use applications.

James Page, Founder and CTO of Riven, commented, “With Stratasys, we recognize how critical it is that production parts are delivered quickly and to specification in order for the additive to reach its full potential. Riven’s next-generation predictive machine learning technology enables customers to get higher quality parts and reduce production lead times.”
