Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Hexagon AB, a provider of digital reality solutions including sensor, software, and autonomous technologies, has acquired CADS Additive GmbH, a provider of specialized software that enables users to prepare designs for metal additive manufacturing. CADS Additive simplifies the process of 3D printing on powder bed fusion machines. The software guides users through the build preparation, helping companies turn design files into printer instructions and improve their manufacturing productivity.

CADS Additive has been a partner of Hexagon since 2021, and the company’s AM Studio software is already connected to Hexagon's Nexus digital reality platform. The software will complete Hexagon’s Nexus-enabled AM workflow, applying its technology portfolio to computer-aided design model preparation, build preparation, simulation-based optimizations, quality and production intelligence, and the automation of computer-aided manufacturing to finish parts.
