Meteor Inkjet Ltd., a leading supplier of industrial inkjet electronics, software, tools, and services, has collaborated with CoreTechnologie GmbH, a global provider of 3D CAD data conversion software solutions for additive manufacturing, to effectively and efficiently integrate 3D printing hardware and software.

In order to implement inkjet technology for binder or materials jetting, industrial print system hardware and software must be tightly integrated with a variety of existing additive manufacturing tools, including those for pre-processing CAD models into a format that inkjet printers can understand.

Meteor and CoreTechnologie (CT) are collaborating so that they both ensure close integration of 3D printing hardware and software solutions offered by respective companies. They will also ensure the availability of complementary tools that provide automation for binder and material jetting applications that take advantage of inkjet’s precision and multi-material capabilities.

CT’s 4D Additive is a comprehensive suite of 3D CAD model build processing tools that includes model repair, geometry analysis and optimization, support, lattice and texture generation, batch nesting, and slicing. When combined with Meteor’s industry-leading printhead drive electronics and Met3D Digital Front End, printer OEMs have a clear path from development to production for additive manufacturing inkjet print systems.

“As a result of our collaboration with Meteor, binder and material jetting systems incorporating Meteor hardware and software will integrate easily with the industry standard workflow provided by 4D_Additive, enabling the processing of precise native 3D models from all major CAD software suppliers.”

– Rémi Goupil, Product Manager for 4D_Additive, CoreTechnologie

Clive Ayling, Meteor’s managing director, commented, “In addition to providing a clear development path for 3D print system OEMs, our collaboration with CT will result in important sustainability benefits for the industry including, for example, real-time sand casting 3D print optimisation with precise density control, reducing material waste and curing time.”

Meteor Inkjet and CoreTechnologie recently demonstrated their 3D printing hardware and software solutions at Formnext 2022.
