3D printing software company Sigma Labs has become a member of the Additive Alliance of Fraunhofer IAPT, a network for additive manufacturing (AM).

Sigma is reportedly the first US company to join the global research consortium, which is aimed at advancing the development and implementation of AM. The membership enables Sigma Labs to demonstrate its PrintRite3D software to AM companies.

 Sigma Labs and Fraunhofer IAPT have also formed a collaborative research and development agreement to test PrintRite3D in identifying and quantifying machine and process inconsistencies.
