Dyndrite partners with Constellium, Elementum 3D, and Sandvik to establish a Materials Consortium dedicated to metal 3D printing.


Dyndrite, a leading provider of additive manufacturing software, has partnered with three metal 3D printing materials providers to establish an industry-led ‘Materials Consortium’. The consortium, which includes Constellium, Elementum 3D, and Sandvik, aims to increase knowledge sharing and standardization in the additive manufacturing industry.

One of the main goals of the consortium is to make laser powder bed fusion powder parameters and related testing data for common materials freely available to the public. By doing so, they believe that end users will be able to increase their knowledge share, improve outcomes, and adopt materials faster. This is especially important as users of additive manufacturing continue to push for more choice and flexibility when it comes to materials.

In addition to providing access to testing data, the consortium also aims to improve the public’s access to their most common and frequently used material parameters. This will allow users to have more transparency and standardization in the additive manufacturing process.

The formation of this consortium follows Dyndrite’s launch of their laser powder bed fusion software toolkit. This toolkit gives users more power and control over geometries, toolpaths, and parameters, addressing a previously unmet need in the industry.

By partnering with materials experts, Dyndrite aims to address another key issue in the industry. The partners will produce materials, test them, and publish their parameters, further expanding the accessibility of tested parameter sets.

Harshil Goel, CEO of Dyndrite, commented on the importance of materials in additive manufacturing, saying, “Materials are a key pillar of additive manufacturing… If additive is to become a mainstream manufacturing process, users require transparency and standardization.” This sentiment was echoed by the other members of the consortium, who are all committed to increasing access to knowledge and unlocking the full potential of additive manufacturing materials.

The consortium has also received support from SLM Solutions, a leading provider of metal 3D solutions. The company’s VP of Sales for the Americas, Garett Purdon, emphasized the importance of collaboration in the industry, stating, “The business case for being an open architecture metal 3D solution provider is about making our customers more successful… We can go further, together.”

Overall, this Materials Consortium is an important step forward for the additive manufacturing industry. By providing free access to testing data and standardizing material parameters, the consortium aims to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing and drive innovation in the industry.
