Height measurement reveals what layers and what part features are potential problem areas in the metal additive manufacturing build. Watch the video to see how software provides insights from layer height data.
Large-scale additive manufacturing platform is the largest 3D printer yet simulated. Watch video for example of how simulation using program G-code catches an error that would otherwise lead to a failed build.
Refurbishing a legacy turbine engine for energy efficiency provided the opportunity to demonstrate topology optimization in concert with metal 3D printing. The design for this torque arm comes from computer simulation insight refined with a human touch.
Spreadsheet integration with Renishaw software allows for fast programming of metal additive manufacturing test builds. Watch video for demonstration of defining many laser parameter combinations for use in a single test.
