Cincinnati Inc. presents SAAM (Small Area Additive Manufacturing), the rapid prototyping complement to Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM). SAAM is powered by NVBOTS and uses fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology to 3D print plastic parts directly from CAD designs. The industrial 3D printer allows designers to prove out part designs while saving material and time. Once the design has been validated for form and functionality using SAAM, the same files are used to produce full-scale parts on a BAAM system. 

SAAM also simulates parts produced by non-additive machines. The same CAD file used for the prototype can be sent to a laser, a press brake or a shear for metal fabrication.

According to the company, SAAM reduces waste in the design process and accelerates advancement to production phase. Possible applications include industries such as aerospace, automotive and heavy equipment.
