Digital Inventory: All you need to know (Part 1) 

Posted Posted in Technology

The benefits of 3D printing to make distributed manufacturing possible, close to the point of consumption, reducing logistics costs and environmental footprint of transport on a global scale have been known for years. Manufacturing on demand, when needed, reducing stocks and making rational use of resources, raw materials and energy. To make this possible and […]

AdditiveLab – Comparison of meshing techniques

Posted Posted in Technology

Simulation using the Fine Element Method (EF) requires the use of a simulation mesh. Today, these meshes are generated by simulation software automatically; integrated automatic algorithms “split” three-dimensional (3D) designs into smaller elements that will essentially represent geometric shapes. In addition to division, mesh algorithms usually allow to define into which types of elements the […]

Tailor-made medicine by 3d printing

3D printing: tailor-made medicine?

Posted Posted in Technology

Introduction of 3D printing in medicine 3D printing is an additive manufacturing technique that creates three-dimensional objects by constructing successive layers of raw material such as metals, plastics, and ceramics. Objects are produced from a digital file, developed from a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computer-aided design (CAD) drawing, allowing the manufacturer to easily make […]

AdditiveLab – Unleashing the Power of Additive Manufacturing Simulation

Posted Posted in Technology

Additive manufacturing comes with a number of challenges. Some of these are related to thermal effects during the manufacturing process, which include the management of cooling rates to ensure homogeneity of material properties. Simulation with AdditiveLab can help optimize pauses within layers (dwell times) or beam path design, to ensure homogeneous cooling rates and the […]
