MetalFAB1 Integrates 3DSIM’s Print Preview Software

by • April 4, 2016 • No Comments

  • Additive Industries’ MetalFAB1 has been defined as a game changer in the world of industrial metal 3D printing due to its high level of automation and high end control; yet, when we initially caught wind of the machine it stood out due to a partnership between the developer and a startup called 3DSIM, whose CEO Dr. Brent Stucker had created an high end software solution for accurately predicting prints preceding they were manufactured. Currently, Additive Industries has officially revealed which they are the initially to integrate 3DSIM’s exaSIM and FLEX tools into their own software, the Additive World Platform.

    Given issues of repeattalent and high end control faced with metal 3D printing devices, the thought of a print preview software may have profound implications. The talent to predict what your documents can appear like when inkjetted onto a piece of paper is pretty easy when compared to the vast array of variables synonymous with melting metal with a laser in a gas vacuum. 3DSIM’s exaSIM and FLEX software tools combine algorithms with real-time data to accurately predict the physics of the printing environment both preceding and during the printing process.

    Brent Stucker, CEO of 3DSIM, commented on the use of 3DSIM by Additive Industries, “We believe 3DSIM’s physics-based software tools can revolutionize the way next products are created, generated and qualified. By seamlessly allowing our customers to manage parts and creates in the Additive World platform, simulate production in 3DSIM’s software and finally making which create on a MetalFAB1 machine, we are creating the tools needed for a truly integrated and predictable metal additive making process.” Mark Vaes, Technology Manager of Additive Industries, says of the software, “The 3DSIM software can allow us to speed up the development of our MetalFAB1 process and assist our customers to increase productivity, speed up process qualification and reduce the cost of printed parts.”

    The MetalFAB1 can be the initially process to implement these powerful tools, adding to the automation and high end control may already existing in these machines. The beta MetalFAB1 machines have all may already been bought up by firms as reputable as Airbus, additional lending credibility which Additive Industries’ metal 3D printing device may quite be a game changer.
