[Software] POWER ADD – Additive Manufacturing
Trajectory programming for additive manufacturing

Power-ADD is trajectory-programming support software for additive manufacturing with the following features:

  • Extraction of contour lines and guiding curves for angular positioning
  • Generation of ISO part programmes for the machine (in splines or interpolation)
Only the filling, where necessary, is generated by CAM. New filling strategies can be integrated quickly.

This software currently works with Delcam-PowerSHAPE 3D CAD software, and Delcam-PowerMILL CAM software, but other CAD and /or CAM software can be used.

Potential applications

Any additive manufacturing machine with any CAD/CAM software.
