Teton Simulation, experts in providing professionals with 3D printing simulation software, has developed SmartSlice for GrabCAD Print which utilizes the new GrabCAD DFAM Software Development Kit from Stratasys to help customers improve the reliability of additive manufacturing builds.

Doug Kenik, Teton Simulation CEO

“Teton Simulation’s vision is to have SmartSlice offered to a multitude of customers within their software of choice. We have developed SmartSlice to be slicer agnostic, working with our hardware partners to integrate SmartSlice into their software offerings. Being able to validate as-printed performance, and minimize print times and material use all within the user’s current workflow is at the core of our strategy”. said Teton Simulation CEO Doug Kenik. “We are excited that one of our next line of offerings outside of Ultimaker Cura will be with Stratasys, as their first “Design for Additive Manufacturing” Software Partner. Stratasys is the global leader in polymer additive manufacturing, and we see a very large opportunity to help their customers design better parts, faster using our SmartSlice technology within GrabCAD Print. As additive manufacturing continues to push into production workflows through the machine and material innovations, the software will help to drastically reduce cycle times and instill confidence that the printed part will function as desired. Stratasys’ commitment to developing a software ecosystem that enables their customers to be successful is a signal that the market is ready, and that Teton Simulation’s SmartSlice is a key piece of technology to help push the industry forward”.

SmartSlice will be released as a plug-in to GrabCAD Print workflow software to make it easy to perform validation and optimization of print parameters for FDM 3D printing. The result is more confidence that parts meet functional and performance requirements, print as fast as possible, and minimize material waste.

“Our focus is on making it easier for advanced manufacturing initiatives to integrate 3D printing on the factory floor for maximum productivity”, said Paul Giaconia, Vice President of Software Products for Stratasys. “One of the keys to scaling 3D printing into production is to make it easy for engineers and designers to create and validate digital product designs using their CAD and simulation tools where additive manufacturing could provide the best solution. Adding Teton Simulation integrated with GrabCAD Print directly solves the design-for-additive-manufacturing challenge.”
