3dpbm AM Software Focus 2022 eBook

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

All digital production inevitably begins with DfAM, or “Design for Additive Manufacturing”, an acronym that indicates all those new approaches to product and part creation that are made possible by additive manufacturing. The 3dpbm AM Software Focus 2022 eBook looks at how these are made possible by parametric and generative software tools engineers use to create an entirely new generation of bio-inspired products, that are lighter, more complex and more efficient.

But software does not end at the design and build phase. Once an AM part emerges from an AM machine it needs to move on to the next stations of an end-to-end digital production cycle. These include non-disruptive analysis, post-processing and part handling, all the way to shipping individually and infinitely diversified digitally customized parts.

In this eBook, we provide an overview of everything that is happening at the different stages of the AM end-to-end workflow. In our feature story, we spoke with Ai Build about the unique capabilities of the AiSync software for creating infinitely complex toolpaths. We researched Ansys‘ simulation solutions specifically for AM and spoke with Dassault Systèmes focusing on the possibilities for last-mile customization in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. We also provide a complete overview of the main software supporting the 3MF format, which will be instrumental for fully exploiting the voxel-level customization capabilities of AM.

The 3dpbm AM Software Focus 2022 eBook can be viewed by scrolling through the document above or downloaded for viewing on your favorite mobile device. In our effort to maintain an open discourse and open access to AM news, the publication is free to access. Our core focus at 3dpbm has always been on the physical side of AM: hardware, materials and parts, but we are vividly aware of the importance that software has had, has and increasingly will have in enabling additive manufacturing technologies to scale into large batch and serial digital production. Opening up new opportunities for both large and small software companies, as well as for the entire manufacturing industry.
