Metal 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process. Complex shapes, enhanced functional properties and lightweighting are some of the unique benefits delivered by additive manufacturing (AM). While there is plenty of information about printing techniques, materials and hardware, a critical element is rarely mentioned: the need for an integrated software solution for metal additive manufacturing. It takes more than a 3D CAD model and a good printer to get a successful print. Metal AM software handles all preparation and optimization actions that are required for a printed part to meet the desired CAD model specifications. This ebook provides an overview of the preparation and optimization process for AM, explains the importance of software to the profitability of any additive manufacturing business and suggests what to look for when researching AM software solutions.

Investment casting is a precise manufacturing methodology that delivers value across industries, from mechanical, automotive and aerospace parts to intricate dental work, jewelry and sculpture. For centuries the trade-off for smooth and accurate investment casted parts has been high costs and long casting pattern lead times. Now the evolution of parts is accelerating dramatically in many industries resulting in shorter product life cycles and lower volumes of casted parts between cycles. Waiting for tooling for obsolete parts for aging aircraft also mean delays for aircraft to be repaired, costing time and money. Demand for faster foundry production is increasing in all industries and foundries need to be ready to respond. To find out how 3D Sysytems can help your business, download this eBook today.

Historically, businesses and organizations have been using 3D printing in one centralized lab such as a rapid prototyping (RP) shop or manufacturing lab. As 3D printing has become more affordable and easier to use, office-friendly 3D printers are now appearing within arm’s reach of designers and engineers. Distributed 3D printing – or point-of-use 3D printing – refers to placing (or distributing) 3D printing systems and post-processing equipment throughout the organization in the spaces where designers and engineers are doing most of their work. Having 3D printers close at hand allows for real-time design testing, adjusting and iteration that’s often desired in the early stages of the design cycle. This e-Book explores: When to use distributed 3D printing 4 questions to consider How to choose a 3D printer
