DP Technology’s Esprit Additive Suite app is a 3D printing solution that delivers machine-optimized job files and control of the additive manufacturing process for both direct metal deposition machines and 3D powder bed fusion systems.

For hybrid machine tools, CNC machines with additive capabilities such as the Mazak i-400AM, the app for direct metal deposition is said to offer integrated programming and simulation for multi-tasking, multi-function, multi-channel additive and subtractive machine tools all integrated within the Esprit CAM system. The Esprit Additive app for 3D powder bed fusion systems is a printer driver that supports the process of additive manufacturing, from orienting the part and creating supports, to optimizing the build, slicing and nesting, to generating a job file.

Both the Esprit Additive Suite apps for direct metal deposition machines and 3D powder bed systems feature the ability to work directly with native 3D CAD files.
