Cloud-based manufacturing operating system company Oqton and provider of 3D reality intelligence for digital manufacturing Riven are the latest companies to join GrabCAD software partner program.

Launched by Stratasys last year, GrabCAD is an open and enterprise-ready software platform that enables to manage production-scale additive manufacturing operations. As a reminder, the platform is open to any software vendor that meets requirements such as references and performance testing, via an SDK licensing fee. A dozen organizations such as AMFG, Teton Simulation and Link3D, have already joined this program.   

Oqton provides users with a machine-agnostic, cloud-based software platform that leverages artificial intelligence to automate repetitive tasks and utilizes intelligent IoT capabilities to automate the end-to-end additive manufacturing workflow across and beyond the production floor, including order tracking, scheduling, latticing, build preparation, and slicing. The solution, purposely built for additive manufacturing, allows users to easily create live dashboards and automated reports to optimize their manufacturing process so that their product can go to market quicker, a press release explains.

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

Through its expertise in 3D reality intelligence, Riven accelerates volume production of high-accuracy, end-use additive manufactured parts. The company’s software uses 3D reality data from scanners and proprietary algorithms, to enable engineering and manufacturing teams to cut iterations and time-to-part while improving the customer experience.

Riven has introduced Warp-Adapted-Model (WAM™) capability, which enables printed production parts across additive manufacturing technologies, including FDM®, powder bed fusion and stereolithography, to be 2-10 times more accurate than parts printed from CAD. WAM scales from singular high-value parts to series production and enables exciting new end-use applications, one can read.

James Page, founder and CTO of Riven, commented, “Together with Stratasys we recognize how critical it is that production parts are delivered quickly and to spec in order for additive to reach its full potential. Riven’s next-generation predictive, machine learning technology, enables customers to realize higher part quality and reduced time to production deliveries.”
