April 27, 2017 – ADAPT, the Alliance for the Development of Additive Processing Technologies, a research consortium focused on developing technologies to accelerate the certification and qualification of 3D printed metal parts, welcomes new member Spatial Corp., the leading provider of 3D software development toolkits for design, manufacturing, and engineering solutions, including leading additive manufacturing hardware producers.
“Spatial will use its membership in ADAPT to bolster our technical expertise in additive manufacturing and strengthen our relationships in the industry. We also believe that our existing partnerships with many AM hardware and software providers can expand ADAPT’s capabilities,” said Ray Bagley, Director of Product Management for 3D Modeling and Additive Manufacturing.
Bagley added that Spatial views membership in ADAPT as a valuable extension to the company’s additive manufacturing market strategy. Supporting research that advances the broader adoption of additive manufacturing is directly in line with Spatial’s goal to help grow the market for its customers.
“Spatial’s membership in ADAPT adds a member focused on the software workflows for 3D printing, which is also at the heart of many of our data-driven research activities. Through both 3D printing equipment manufacturers and developers of specialty software applications, Spatial accelerates the efficient industrial application of 3D additive manufacturing. This area of expertise represents another strong partnership for our organization and its members,” said ADAPT Technical Director Aaron Stebner.
