Share this Article

Today Max and I have a special guest, Ty Pollak of Open Additive. We’re really proud of this episode and we enjoyed the discussion and all that we learned from Ty. Open Additive is trying to develop an open powder bed fusion technology stack. Meant specifically for universities, developers of materials and experimental use, Open Additive gives researchers more of an extensible and research-ready package that can even be customized to certain applications. With easier access to parts and more settings to play with users can change more parameters and do things such as qualify new exotic materials, strategies, and processes. Open Additive is also a startup but not a traditional one, instead, the firm aims for steady long term growth. We hope you really will enjoy and learn from this episode!
