Design for Additive

Sintavia, Siemens Collaborate on AM Software

Sintavia to provide software testing and technical feedback in exchange for access to pre-released Siemens additive manufacturing software.

For Additive Manufacturing, Software Is as Important as the 3D Printer

AM is the process that both requires and realizes the possibilities of manufacturing software. Recently posted articles cover software tools for additive — each article with a companion video.

Generative Design Improves Micromobility FUV: The Cool Parts Show S3E3

Arcimoto’s lightweight “Fun Utility Vehicle” gets even lighter thanks to parts that could only come from additive manufacturing. On this episode of The Cool Parts Show, some of the craziest automotive parts you have seen.

The Challenges to the Organization: How to Make the Shift to AM for Production

Fabian Alefeld of EOS offers a way forward with AM. Success affects design, the role of manufacturing and the entire value chain. Join him Sept. 21 at 1:00 pm EDT as part of AM In-Depth. (Add to your MySpark Planner.)

Getting Ready for Additive Manufacturing

Readiness needs to be assessed on multiple fronts as companies seek to industrialize additive manufacturing.

By Mapping Layer Height, Velo3D Shows Where Part Is Distorting (Includes Video)

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.

A Three-Piece Toolset to Minimize Metal Additive Build Failures (Includes Video)

Three separate software tools from Siemens attempt to control some of the most challenging variables within metal AM: build orientation, distortion and deposition paths. Part of software video series.

Lam Research, Velo3D Partner for Metal Additive Manufacturing Applications

Joint agreement includes proprietary process development and investment in Velo3D.

Topology Optimization Delivers Nonintuitive Design Features for Legacy Part (Includes Video)

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.

Nanofabrica's Tera 250 Enables Micron Level Accuracy

Nanofabrica has unveiled its micro additive manufacturing (AM) technology, the Tera 250, said to be the only commercially available AM platform that can produce micro products with micron resolutions.

Additive Manufacturing Will Aid And Accelerate The Circular Economy

A circular economy links material, design, manufacturing, product and end-of-life in a continuous, sustainable loop. This special report illustrates the roles for 3D printing every step of the way.

Generative Design to Bring Weight and Cost Savings for Micromobility FUV

The “Fun Utility Vehicle” from Arcimoto is already in production, and already lightweight. But after just 30 days of redesign for additive manufacturing, the company discovered major components could be made lighter still, and production could be made simpler.
