Stealth startup Dyndrite Corporation has launched its Accelerated Geometry Kernel (AGK), a new geometric modeling kernel that runs natively on GPUs. Alongside the launch of AGK, Dyndrite also unveiled the Dyndrite Additive Toolkit, an additive manufacturing application built on AGK.

The Dyndrite AGK can represent geometry types, including splines, surface tessellations, volumetric data, tetrahedra and voxels. For developers, the kernel provides C++ and Python application programming interfaces (APIs). The kernel is also scalable to additional GPU nodes, both local and cloud based.

The Additive Toolkit draws on the AGK to improve 3D printing workflows by using native CAD design files, rather than STLs. The AGK was developed with 3D printing in mind, and Dyndrite claims it greatly accelerates additive-specific computations like lattice creation, support generation, hatching, slice generation and toolpath generation. The Toolkit comes with a GUI, and users can also employ Python to script their 3D printing workflows.

"Today with the release of the Dyndrite platform, we dramatically improve the daily working lives of additive manufacturing users,” said Dyndrite’s Laura Lurati. “I'm excited to see the innovative solutions our users create with these powerful new tools."

The Dyndrite AGK is in limited availability to select developers and OEMs, with broader availability expected this summer. The Additive Toolkit is also in limited release and will enter public beta this summer.
