Nano Dimension Develops Initial Version of Software Package for 3D Printed Electronics

NESS ZIONA, Israel --- Nano Dimension Ltd. has completed the development of the initial version of its software package, which will be integrated in the company's DragonFly 2020 3D printer. The company’s Dragonfly 3D printer, which is currently in development, will use proprietary inks and integrated software to quickly create fully functioning printed circuit board (PCB) prototypes.

The software package, called ‘Switch’, enables preparation of production files of printed electronic circuits using the DragonFly 2020 3D printer. The software supports customary formats in the electronics industry such as Gerber files, as well as VIA and DRILL files.

The ’Switch’ software presents a unique interface that displays Gerber files and an accurate and detailed description of the PCB's structure, which facilitates a highly precise conversion to a 3D file format.

By using the software, the user of the DragonFly 2020 3D printer will be able edit and prepare multilayer 3D files for printing. Many parameters can be adjusted, such as layer thickness, conductor width, layer order, punching and rotation options as well as the shape or object outline. In addition, the software enables an optimization of the printing process by maximizing the use of the printing surface.
