The online tool provides automated cost quotes for designs.

Linear AMS has launched Rapid Quote, an online interactive service that enables users to upload a 3D CAD model to explore design iterations and build cost models. The same digital CAD file powers the Linear AMS metal additive manufacturing equipment, creating a system that is streamlined from design through production.

After uploading a file, users can adjust the model and receive automated cost quotes for each iteration. According to the company, the system identifies problem areas and suggests options, speeding rework. The system is said to provide significant potential for cost savings and process improvement.

 “Getting real-time quotes while at the same time improving part features, tolerances, and design for manufacturability will profoundly change and improve customer businesses,” says John Tensbusch, Linear AMS vice president.
