What is Additive Manufacturing?
Additive Manufacturing is the process of adding metallic and/or nonmetallic material in order to create parts. The base material can exist in various forms, as a metal powder or a plastic filament, for example, with a form of heat used to adhere succeeding material layers, thus building the part. This differs from subtractive manufacturing processes such as machining, where material is removed to produce the part. Additive manufacturing enables production of unique structures, impossible to create via other manufacturing processes.?
What is Manufacturing & Simulation Software?
Simulation software for AM at every step in your AM helps manfuacturers optimize topology and design for AM, conduct design validation, improve build setup and develop support structures, and simulate the print process, to greatly reduce trial-and-error testing.
