Enhancing the additive manufacturing process chain
30 May 2017
The design freedom provided by additive manufacturing (AM) or ‘3D printing' technology is an important enabler in cutting-edge product innovation. As part of the revolution in digital manufacturing, AM can radically simplify the production of complex parts, while simultaneously improving functional performance, reducing part weight and minimising component counts.
To take full advantage of AM's unique capabilities, however, complementary software tools need to be optimised to satisfy the new requirements of ‘design for additive manufacturing' (DfAM) rules and guidelines. Dassault Systèmes, a world-leading provider of 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, collaborated with Renishaw to streamline its 3DEXPERIENCE® platform to deliver a no-compromise end-to-end AM design experience.
