Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast polymer production 3D printers, has made Ximplify, an automated 3D printing decision support portal, immediately available for customers. Ximplify is powered by CASTOR, a software that accelerates designers’ and manufacturers’ ability to adopt additive manufacturing at scale. Ximplify is part of Nexa3D’s expanding digital twin software platform NexaX, which combines process and geometry algorithms with end-to-end validated workflows to identify, select and optimize tooled plastic parts and assembly candidates suitable for polymer additive production.
Ximplify is CAD-agnostic. It 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.”
CASTOR is a decision support software which helps manufacturers to 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 which includes feedback whether it is beneficial to use 3D printing, or not.
“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.
“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.”
