Designs compatible for 3D printing are crucial in order to fully exploit the technology's potential. It is therefore important to know how to design 3D printed components to enable you to create solutions that are suitable for production. We also assist in selecting materials and powders and in preparing the build job data. This includes generating the right support structures and, where applicable, adjusting parameter settings.
Customer example of component design
The original design has been re-designed and re-engineered, resulting in an optimised 3D printed component.
Benefits of metal 3D printing
- Integrated flexure joint
- 75% fewer components
- 62% lower volume
- 10% lower costs
