The latest Admaflex software is a complete solution
The Admaflex 130 is an open system that comes standard with complete software which provides full control of the printing process. The Admaflex user interface allows you to slice the part, add support structures if needed, apply offsets, customize and optimize parameters before and during the printing process. This means no separate PC is needed and no additional modules need to be purchased to have full access to all parameters and functions.
For traceability of the printing process, log files are stored automatically. The open software allows you to use commercial available materials and the flexibility to develop own materials. A unique standard software feature is the “multi-part printing”, that enables you to control light exposure settings for each individual layer and for each individual part, speeding up your development and Design of Experiments.
We have just released software version 18.104.22.168 with many additional features and improvements, such as:
Automatic support generation
The Admaflex user interface can directly open STL files of geometries generated by your CAD system, rotate, scale up, slice, duplicate and apply offsets, so there is no need for an external PC with separate slicing software license.
The new Automatic support generation feature is ideal for geometries which do not have a flat side to start with, such as medical implants and jewellery. The automatic support generation software allows to create quickly and easily, different types of support structures. The amount of supports can be chosen by varying the support angle. Between the support and the model, a gap can be created, which allows easy removal of the part.
Vision based monitoring with enhanced video player
The Vision based monitoring features allows to make time lapse videos of the print job. A video player has been added, allowing you to view any recording made by the printer, directly on the printer.
The video player supports scrolling through the video, pausing the video at any point and changing the playback speed. Right below the video the print action in the video is also displayed together with time and layer information.
This video player makes it very easy to quickly trace back any point in the printing process and, in connection with the logfile which contains all printing parameter settings, directly see what was happening with the print.
Remote process monitoring with possibility to pause/continue the print job
When the Admaflex machine is connected via Ethernet to your company network, via any laptop or desktop PC, you can have remote access to the machine, for easy exchange of printfiles and logfiles.
The remote connection also allows monitoring of the print job, including real-time video capture. New in the web interface is the option to pause the current print job. This allows you to immediately react to what is happening on the printer from anywhere you are. If you notice an issue and are currently not near the printer, you can pause it remotely, go to the printer to fix the problem, and then continue the printjob.
