Authentise launches Digital Design Warehouse for easy sharing of digital designs


Authenticatea leader in data-driven manufacturing and workflow tools, has launched a new product that aims to simplify the way digital designs are shared.

The company says the Digital Design Warehouse will help organizations create more cohesive additive manufacturing initiatives, bringing information from disparate silos to the view of the entire team.

According to Authentise, the platform allows users to have their own personal library by uploading any type of 2D and 3D file with fully configurable additional settings. Designs can be further analyzed using third party plugins such as ZVersewhich allows conversion from 2D to 3D, and Beaverwhich assesses the suitability of the project for additive manufacturing.

Access to the digital design warehouse is tightly controlled with granular permissions, allowing users to share projects with internal and external stakeholders, such as vendors or customers. Authentise says the platform provides a space for everyone to engage in conversations, edit (where permitted), and view or access designs.

“The market for additively manufactured aftermarket parts is changing rapidly,” said Omer Blaier, CEO of Castor. “We have helped many companies assess additive opportunities in their portfolio and acquire large databases of ready-to-go designs. What’s missing is a tool to help them develop those projects and then securely share those designs with production facilities. We are thrilled to see Authentise move to fill the void and thrilled to be part of the project.

A particular use case for the Digital Design Warehouse is spare parts. OEMs can use the platform to manage design and engineering processes, which the company says brings together multiple stakeholders from design, R&D and testing. The product also allows the design to be securely shared with potential customers through a personalized brand catalog.

“We are thrilled to launch the Digital Design Warehouse,” said Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise. “Today’s launch shows that the distributed manufacturing dream that Authentise was founded on ten years ago is not dead. It will take several more years of concerted effort from the industry, but soon plane crashes caused by the lack of spare parts available, as happened in Nigeria in 2012, will be a thing of the past.

Wegner added, “We can only achieve this by working together, so we’re excited to launch two new integrations to Authentise’s open platform. Castor and ZVerse help customers identify and develop the applications that ultimately help drive the industry. We look forward to including other amazing third-party features along with Authentise’s toolkit, such as prep workflows. »

Earlier this year, Authentise announced the acquisition of Element Technology Platforma provider of self-service workflow tools for manufacturing.
