Nexa3D Launches Ximplify automated 3D printing selector and design optimizer

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Nexa3D announced the immediate availablity of an automated 3D printing selector and design optimizer called Ximplify. This support portal, powered by CASTOR, accelerates designers’ and manufacturers’ ability to adopt additive manufacturing at scale. Ximplify is part of Nexa3D’s expanding digital twin software platform NexaX, combining process and geometry algorithms and end-to-end validated workflows to identify, select and optimize tooled plastic parts and assembly candidates that are suitable for polymer additive production.

Nexa3D’s focus is digitizing the world’s supply chain sustainably. The company makes ultra-fast industrial-grade polymer 3D printers affordable for professionals and businesses of all sizes. The company’s photoplastic printers are powered by its proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) while its thermoplastic printers are powered by Quantum Laser Sintering (QLS), both of which increase print speed and productivity by orders of magnitude. The company’s partnerships with world-class material suppliers unlock the full potential of supply-chain approved polymers that are tailored for faster production at scale. Nexa3D’s Digital Twin Printing (DTP) software optimizes the entire additive production cycle through process interplay algorithms to ensure part performance and production consistency delivering higher yields while minimizing material usage and waste to reduce energy and carbon footprints.

CASTOR is a decision support software that helps manufacturers reduce the risks and accelerate the process of identifying opportunities for using industrial 3D printing. The software conducts CAD file analysis resulting in an automatic report on a part-by-part basis that includes feedback whether it is or is not beneficial to use 3D printing. The report also includes a recommendation on the most suitable technology and material for the 3D printing while maintaining the system requirements. It estimates the cost and lead-time and connects the manufacturer to a service bureau which can print and supply the part according to the requirements. Kyttanen Speed 3D printing

Ximplify is CAD-agnostic and can scan through a complete list of materials comprising of thousands of parts in minutes, selecting the ideal candidates for additive manufacturing. In addition to analyzing parts for ideal process, Ximplify will recommend the best 3D printer and material to maximize performance and provide full part cost and return on investment analysis. At the conclusion of each session, Ximplify generates an automatic report to support the entire decision making and implementation process.

“We are excited to partner with CASTOR, a leading decision support software provider, to deliver orders of magnitude productivity and cost advantages to companies seeking to simplify their supply chain by quickly identifying opportunities to migrate tooled plastic parts to just-in-time, on-site and on-demand additive polymer production,” said Avi Reichental, Co-founder, Chairman and CEO of Nexa3D. “Nexa3D is a firm believer in the power of collaborations as force multipliers to democratize access to additive polymer production at scale, and we are very excited to add CASTOR to our growing list of outstanding industry partners.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Nexa3D and combine the power of our decision support software capabilities with Nexa3D’s digital twin software platform for the benefit of designers and engineers seeking to accelerate their additive manufacturing learning curve, and de-risk migration from tooled parts to digital parts with all the benefits of digital inventory,” said Omer Blaier, Co-founder and CEO of CASTOR. He continued to say that: “Since its inception, CASTOR’s mission is to simplify and demystify the process and knowledge required for product companies to digitize their supply-chain by harvesting the advantages of additive manufacturing. In that respect, we see Nexa3D as a company with similar interests and values, and together we are taking another step towards digitizing the world’s supply chain sustainably.”
