CONCORD, Mass.—RIZE, Inc., is teaming with Dassault Systèmes to offer North American customers a better way to design and manufacture 3D printed functional prototypes, production tooling, and end use parts.
The joint offering will enable users of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to use RIZE 3D Printing technology to build “intelligent parts” with smarter workflows, according to a release from RIZE. Dassault Systèmes will provide design, simulation, and manufacturing software suited for additive manufacturing needs; RIZE will provide the 3D printing system—including printer and materials—that is connected via industry standards such as 3MF.
Key to the offering are connected, intelligent, interactive environments, where hardware and software—in this case, RIZE’s 3D printers and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform— allow users to easily design and print full-color 3D parts using industry standard software. By using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for design and RIZE’s 3D printer for part creation, users can achieve smarter workflows that help improve collaboration across design and manufacturing and speed the process of innovation, RIZE said in the release.
“Our customers are focused on using additive manufacturing and are looking for ways to accelerate the business value,” said Noam Ktalav, Dassault Systèmes’ director of partner excellence, global value solutions. “The combination of RIZE’s Smart Spaces and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a strong package to help customers better realize the value of this transformative technology.”
Designers will be able to deploy and derive new value by integrating UL GREENGUARD 2904 certified RIZE 3D printing within their engineering workflows to accelerate design verification. Manufacturing users can produce carbon composite parts that require high stiffness and strength for functional applications in custom tools, jigs, and fixtures, the company said.
According to RIZE, the transformational impact of the joint solution is already evident.
“NIAR-WSU is at the forefront of innovation in additive manufacturing, and we have built the first Smart Space on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform—combining additive manufacturing and AR/VR applications from Dassault Systèmes, RIZE full color and composite 3D Printing Systems, and the NIAR additive consulting and training expertise,” said Shawn Ehrstein, director, emerging technologies, CAD/CAM National Institute for Aviation Research, Wichita State University. “We believe this will deliver smarter workflows in engineering and manufacturing, and the adoption of Industry 4.0 methodologies. As a Dassault Systèmes customer, we believe this solution delivers accelerated time to value to the industry.”
RIZE (www.rize3d.com/3ds), a Boston-based additive manufacturing company, said it focuses on helping customers drive sustainable and inclusive innovation. The company’s patented hybrid technology, Augmented Deposition, combines filament-based extrusion and functional ink-based material jetting to address the industry challenges of safety, ease of use, and security of intellectual property.
The firm’s first product, RIZE™ ONE, was released in 2017 and is reported to be the first 3D printer in the industry to be awarded the UL GREENGUARD 2904 certification for safety and low emissions. RIZE’s second product, XRIZE, is said to be industry’s first full color and carbon composite industrial 3D printer.
