Dyndrite, providers of the core Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE) and Application Development Kit (ADK) used to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, reports that Impossible Objects, a 3D printer and materials company, has chosen Dyndrite ADK software to power its new high-speed composite-based additive manufacturing (CBAM) 25 process.  

The CBAM 25 process encompasses AM end-use part production. The process operates at room temperature, is easy to operate and simple to maintain, according to the companies. CBAM uses roll-fed inkjet technology, providing a continuous printing rate of 25 feet per minute, or nearly 11,000 cm^3/hr of parts printed per hour.

“Impossible Objects pioneered the CBAM process, bringing an unprecedented level of part durability to additive manufacturing,” says Robert Swartz, founder and chairman of the Board at Impossible Objects.

Impossible Object’s “Rules-based Automated Masking Packing and Slicing” (on-RAMP) software, powered by Dyndrite, integrates the multi-threaded, GPU-accelerated, Python-based Accelerated Computation Engine from Dyndrite with Impossible Object’s software to drive its CBAM process. The CBAM software powered by Dyndrite delivers an easy to use GUI and automated CAD-to-print workflows. Benefits include faster processing of native CAD 3D data, reductions in manual labor, automated labeling and nesting that optimizes build space and minimizes scrap, and customizable workflows that allow faster time to a first part.

With Dyndrite, Impossible Objects created an automated CAD-to-print workflow with a build time 10 times faster than before, a 90% reduction in manual labor and improved build block use by 20%, according to the companies.

“Dyndrite was the perfect partner for supplying software to match our new high speed process,” continues Swartz. “Their team and software augmented our own internal team enabling us to focus on what differentiates us, and keep our IP internal while leveraging their powerful ADK toolsets. The result is a high performance hardware, software and materials solution that puts automated durable end-use AM part production in the hands of users worldwide. 

“CBAM 25 and Dyndrite is an example of next-generation solutions emerging that provide engineers new capabilities at speed,” says Harshil Goel, CEO and founder, Dyndrite.

Impossible Objects will be presenting the CBAM 25 at RAPID + TCT booth #4024 in Chicago, May 2-4, 2023. CBAM 25 machines will be available in early 2024.
