New manufacturing frontiers such as additive manufacturing create new challenges for traditional 3D explicit modeling. In this video, Chad Jackson discusses some of the challenges and how nTopology’s implicit modeling tool solves them.
Generative Design and 3D Printing
Can we skip CAD in design?
Although CAD in design is obviously needed, there are some areas where you can skip it completely. In this video, Chad Jackson discusses when CAD isn’t needed and which vendors provide solutions.
Atlas 3D’s Additive Manufacturing Solution
Are you having to print alot of metal parts to avoid deformation? If so, let’s talk about Atlas 3D. In this video, Chad Jackson discusses their cloud-based solution and how they enable you to print parts right the first time.
FARO and 3D Scanning for Engineering
Who is FARO? They are a company that offers both hardware and software for 3D scanning. In this post, we will discuss the capabilities, the applications, and the differentiators of their offerings. First off, FARO offers what’s called a scan arm. The scan arm is like a little gun attached to an arm that you …
Generative Design and Engineering Ethics: Where’s the Intersection?
Let’s talk about how generative design and engineering ethics intersect. Generative design offers a ton of capabilities to automate, explore, and discover new design options.
ParaMatters: What is it? What’s the value?
Let’s talk about ParaMatters’ traits and characteristics.
Number one, it is a cloud-based platform, so you access it through a browser. Number two, it is a token-based purchase, so you buy tokens and consume them based on the jobs that you run.
What printers does Formlabs offer and how are they different?
Let’s talk about Formlabs. There’s a lot of innovation happening in the whole additive manufacturing space, and Formlabs has some tangible differences in what they’re doing. The most noticeable difference is they print the parts upside down, and this is stereolithography, so they are using a resin.
PostProcess Technologies’ Connected3D: Design for Additive PostProcessing
During the additive post-processing phase of design, most steps need to be carried out manually in order to clean the printed product. Enter PostProcess Technologies, the company that helps you automate and standardize the post-processing procedure. Chad Jackson gives us insight into how their software performs during the last stages of additive design.
NX and 3D Printing Analysis: What’s Unique?
One of the big challenges with metal 3D printing is avoiding part warpage due to shrinkage. Siemens PLM Software has developed some interesting and unique capabilities to address this problem, even though many other software applications offer similar functionality. Find out more in this video.
