Intech partners with Machineworks to improve metal 3D printers with Polygonica

Intech additive solutions dismissed MachineWorks‘ Polygonica software to support its range of metal 3D printing systems.

Polygonica is a polygon mesh modeling engine that has been integrated by 3D Systems, Stratasys, Renishaw, Desktop Metal, DMG Mori and more.

Intech Additive becoming the latest to license the software, the company expects it to enhance its iFusion SF1, iFusion MF and iFusion LF metal additive manufacturing platforms, and complement its AMBuilder and AMOptoMet software solutions. Intech is confident that Polygonica’s advanced meshing algorithms will complement AMBuilder build preparation by addressing the problem of part deviation that often occurs during metal 3D printing processes. This will help ensure more successful builds for users of Intech’s metal systems.

“At Intech, we are working hard to accelerate the adoption of metal printing in modern manufacturing by providing a complete end-to-end ecosystem, from design to additive manufacturing, printing, post-processing and quality assurance,” commented Murari Venkataraman, Vice President of Operations at Intech Additive Solutions. “We strive to reduce the cost of entry while improving reliability, throughput and efficiency. Adding Polygonica’s world-renowned mesh algorithms to AMBuilder has been a big milestone for us, and we also plan to introduce innovative new software powered in part by the Polygonica engine.

“We are of course very happy to announce that Intech is our second Polygonica customer in India. Moreover, we are very happy to work with Intech,” added Dr. Fengiang Lin, General Manager of MachineWorks. “Their indisputable knowledge and experience in the metal additive industry will help the Polygonica team meet the ever-increasing demands of handling DfAM geometries. We look forward to seeing new developments in their future products.
