Spatial Corp and ModuleWorks Collaborate on CAD/CAM Solutions for Additive and Hybrid Machining

Spatial Corp, the leading provider of 3D software development toolkits
(SDKs) for design, manufacturing, and engineering solutions, and a
subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes, and ModuleWorks, the leading supplier
of CAD/CAM software development toolkits for machining and simulation,
have developed SDKs (aka software components) that offer CAD/CAM vendors
complete workflow solutions for additive and hybrid machining.

For the past several years, both Spatial and ModuleWorks
have enjoyed a successful cooperation and share a large customer base
that benefits from the synergy between their SDKs. This cooperation
between Spatial and ModuleWorks ensures fast and flexible integration of
libraries from both companies into CAD/CAM applications, accelerating
the development of advanced, cost-effective workflow solutions for their

The powerful CGM
SDK from Spatial Corp, and the launch of the new
high-performance additive components from ModuleWorks, extends this
cooperation into the field of additive and hybrid machining.

“We are looking forward to the launch of our new components for additive
and hybrid machining,” said Mathias Rohler, Product Manager for Additive
and Hybrid Machining at ModuleWorks. “Spatial’s CGM Polyhedra models
provide excellent input data for our components. When used in
combination, these libraries empower vendors with the tools they need to
provide new, powerful, 3D printing solutions for end users.”

“Our continued cooperation with ModuleWorks will further enable us to
deliver an integrated software platform to empower 3D printing OEMs and
ISVs to create a single, comprehensive application, covering all the
additive manufacturing software tasks,” said Ray Bagley, Product Manager
for Modeling Products and Additive
at Spatial. “This integrated solution combines the
power of 3D
, and ModuleWorks machining engines. Customers will be able
to leverage this solution to deliver much more robust applications to
their end users, improving their user experience and production
efficiency, all while reducing their own risk and getting to revenue

With sophisticated surface recognition and the powerful checking and
healing capabilities, Spatial’s CGM Polyhedra SDK delivers a precise,
watertight mesh. This mesh, along with high-precision CAD data, can be
passed to the high-performance ModuleWorks additive and hybrid
manufacturing components to create complete, cost-effective workflows
for high-quality additive and hybrid machining applications. The
ModuleWorks additive software components offer toolpath calculation and
simulation, as well as advanced nozzle and material definition, multiple
STL capabilities, and automatic nesting.

The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy. Companies are wary of committing all of their resources to a single cloud, and instead are choosing to spread the risk – and the benefits – of cloud computing across multiple providers and internal infrastructures, as they follow their business needs. Will this approach be successful? How large is the …

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data.
When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, “pervasive” and “cognitive” computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
