Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), a leader in polymer 3D printing solutions, announced today the acquisition of quality assurance software company Riven. The Berkeley, Calif.,-based start-up, has been a Stratasys connectivity software partner and its cloud-based software solution will now be fully integrated into Stratasys’ GrabCAD Additive Manufacturing Platform, benefiting customers using any Stratasys 3D printer running GrabCAD Print software.

Stratasys acquires software company Riven and its cloud-based software solution will be fully integrated into GrabCAD platform for AM “We believe that by identifying state-of-the-art technology platforms and cultivating them under the Stratasys umbrella, companies like Riven can add incremental growth engines to our platform. By integrating Riven’s offerings into our GrabCAD software platform, we will enable more manufacturing customers to adopt Stratasys solutions for end-use parts production,” said Stratasys Vice President of Global Software Shaul Samara. “This important functionality will help ensure production-scale parts are 3D printed accurately and can be inspected quickly within a closed-loop additive manufacturing process. The acquisition of Riven is another example of how we are working to ensure we are providing our customers with complete solutions across the entire additive manufacturing digital thread.”

Riven’s cloud-based software helps customers quickly inspect, diagnose, and automatically correct deviations between CAD files and actual printed parts, resulting in more accurate parts at a lower overall cost. A new version in testing uses artificial intelligence to pre-adjust the models automatically. Parts inspection in particular can be a significant bottleneck in the production process, in many cases creating delays of weeks or months. By integrating Riven’s software into a closed-loop 3D printing process, Stratasys will be able to help its customers scale their shipments of 3D printed end-use parts while reducing waste through fewer iterations to improve sustainability.

“It’s been clear to us for some time how much quality is in Stratasys’ DNA, so we knew joining them would be a great fit,” said Riven founder James Page, who will now be a software vice president at Stratasys. “Our combined mission is to ensure that users’ 3D printed reality matches the CAD file each time. By enabling even higher accuracy, we can open new markets and applications.”

Stratasys’ GrabCAD AM Platform enables two-way connectivity between 3D printers, additive manufacturing and enterprise applications, and broader Industry 4.0 infrastructure. The open and enterprise-ready platform brings together GrabCAD applications and functionality from GrabCAD Software Partners. This allows manufacturers to manage their production-scale additive manufacturing operations across the entire digital thread, from design through production.

The acquisition, which closed in October 2022, included all intellectual property associated with Warp Adaptive Modeling (WAM) and Predictive WAM (PWAM).  Members of the Riven team will be integrated into the Stratasys Software business unit.
