Altair to Rely on HP for Better 3D Printing Designs

Altair, a global leader in computational intelligence, has signed a partnership agreement with HP Inc. on 3D material information. Particularly, HP will provide Altair with proprietary material information that will bolster the Altair® Material Data Center™. It will enable designers, engineers, and scientists to browse, search, and compare materials in a standalone application or through the interface of their simulation and optimization tools.

Additionally, the collaboration will help break down traditional barriers to 3D printing adoption. Ultimately, it would help customers better design parts for Multi Jet Fusion and Metal Jet printers.

HP will provide Altair with proprietary material information that will bolster its Material Data Center™.

“Collaborating with HP will empower our customers to overcome the common challenge of access to accurate material property data, that often hinders the design and production of 3D-printed parts,” said Yeshwant Mummaneni, chief engineer, data management and analytics, Altair.

“3D printing solutions are providing new and unique opportunities for businesses and industries of all sizes around the world. We are thrilled to continue providing best-in-class solutions and databases that help more people benefit from the technology and its adoption.”

Elevate Efficiency of 3D Designs

Mainly, the collaboration bridges the often-siloed functions of the design and production of 3D-printed parts. As a result of the partnership, engineers with access to the Altair Material Data Center will be able to use HP material data to design efficient parts, conduct structural analysis using finite element analysis (FEA), and predict and fix manufacturing defects during design and simulation.

“3D printing is at the forefront of so many next-generation opportunities. We are delighted to reinforce Altair’s robust databases and solutions with our library of material information,” said Arvind Rangarajan, global head, software and data, personalization, and 3D printing, HP.

“Partnering with a technological leader like Altair will help organizations worldwide develop better products, shorten timelines, and minimize the prototyping process to reduce waste.”

The collaboration will also benefit users of Altair® Inspire™ Print3D, which accelerates the creation, optimization, and study of innovative, structurally efficient additively manufactured parts. Specifically, it provides a fast and accurate toolset for the design and process simulation of parts made by metal binder jetting.
