Webinar: Topology Optimization of 3D-Printed Components
Register for the free webinar by SolidThinking to be held Friday, September 30, at 1:00 p.m. EST.
One of the most intriguing freedoms additive manufacturing provides is the freedom to tailor a part’s design to precisely match the function that part has to serve. Potentially, this can dramatically reduce a part’s mass and material use while enhancing the performance of the component. But getting to these organic, optimized forms requires approaches to design that are unfamiliar to many.
Jaideep Bangal, senior application engineer with SolidThinking, will discuss this in a webinar titled, “Create Radically Better Products with Design Optimization and 3D Printing,” to be held on Friday, September 30, at 1:00 p.m. EST. The webinar will focus on topology optimization, exploring what this design tool is, how it can help the design process, and how optimization and 3D printing together can realize superior component designs that in many cases could not be produced any other way.

How tiny can features get? How high can walls extend? What is the longest unsupported distance a bridge of material can span between two features? These and other DMLS and SLS design rules addressed by expert from Proto Labs.
“We’re in this for the long haul,” he says. Here are the challenges facing 3D printing for production, and here are the ways those challenges will be overcome.
