Autodesk, Arkema & Farsoon together develop advanced AM

Working together, the companies Autodesk, Arkema and Farsoon are developing an optimized software, hardware, and advanced materials ecosystem with the goal of accelerating industrial production with polymer laser sintering.

When hardware, software and materials are developed together, it simplifies the design to print process, making it easier for customers to adopt polymer additive processes in a production environment. The three companies will showcase their latest collaborative developments at the TCT Asia show in Shanghai.

This evolving market needs much more than materials alone. It is essential to enable and leverage key strategic partnerships throughout the digital design and manufacturing chain. It’s all about synergies.

The goal is to create the best possible customer experience. Autodesk, a leading global software company leverages its state-of-the-art end-to-end design and manufacturing software capabilities optimized for Farsoon’s leading polymer laser sintering hardware and open platform system. From an advanced materials standpoint, Arkema, a global designer of advanced materials, offers industry leading polymer performance with its biobased Rilsan® polyamide 11 material – a polymer with superior strength and durability.
