Accelerates the ability of prototypers and manufacturers to adopt additive manufacturing using intelligent, automated, intuitive tools
Combines process and geometry algorithms with MES workflow software to optimize plastic parts for additive production
Reduces the cost, risk and time required to successfully implement 3D printing for the entire prototyping-to-series production cycle
Ventura, CA, January 26, 2021 – Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast polymer production 3D printers, announced today the immediate availability of NexaX 2.0 software, a comprehensive file-to-part software platform that extends the 20X productivity advantage of its ultrafast NXE 400 3D printers.
Developed in collaboration with ParaMatters, NexaX 2.0 enables the development of high-performance additive manufacturing processes on a scalable modern computation architecture, effectively compressing the entire file-to-part cycle using fully integrated build set up and MES workflow software.
NexaX 2.0’s accelerated capabilities feature automated intelligent support generation, fully integrated build set up and print management software that can prepare part files for printing in half the time of other solutions. NexaX 2.0 is part of Nexa3D’s expanding software platform, combining process and geometry algorithms and end-to-end validated workflows to optimize plastic parts production. This highly innovative and powerful software platform extends Nexa3D’s productivity advantage to all preprocessing activities while maximizing each part’s mechanical performance and consistency, reducing production cycles from days to minutes, and minimizing material usage and waste compared to traditional manufacturing.
NexaX 2.0 comes loaded with significant productivity and performance features including:
Parts file preparation for printing in half the time of other solutions
Simple, intuitive user interface
Lightning-fast proprietary slice algorithms
Seamless integration with Nexa3D’s large and growing materials portfolio
Automatic part-by-part scaffold supports
Expert user support generation capability
Part rescale and duplication capability
Automatic part collision and out-of-bounds detection
Accurate part print-time and resin consumption estimator
Remote management and live print view capability
Fleet management and MES workflow tools
“With our NXE 400 3D printers completing entire jobs in 15- to 30-minute cycles, we quickly realized that file preparation and build set up are new sources of bottlenecks as these processes can take orders of magnitude longer than the entire print job. This problem is exactly what we set out to solve with NexaX 2.0,” said Izhar Medalsy, CTO of Nexa3D. “We are committed to advancing our digital manufacturing platform capabilities and this strategic collaboration with ParaMatters is a real force multiplier. We are very proud of the incredible platform Nexa3D’s software team developed in collaboration with ParaMatters, and thankful that all our beta users agree.”
“At ParaMatters, we pride ourselves on developing Industry 4.0 intuitive design and manufacturing productivity tools that make it easy, fast and cost effective for designers and manufacturers to bring their new products to market,” said Michael Bogomolny, CTO of ParaMatters. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Nexa3D on bringing to market such a powerful platform that is truly a game changer for the AM industry and appreciate the confidence they have placed in us.”
NexaX 2.0 opens the door to the next generation of performance polymers that cover the entire design-to-manufacturing cycle through the interplay of hardware, software and chemistry, unlocking new properties for printed parts and enabling process stability, production scaling, consistent product quality, higher yields, and unmatched mechanical performance. NexaX 2.0 provides API’s that make the integration of a variety of software tools easy, including assembly parts consolidation, generative design for AM, lightweighting, automated print optimization, part costing estimator, ROI calculator and MES workflow. The NXE 400 3D printer equipped with NexaX 2.0 software is available for purchase now.
