Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit: Choosing the Right Tools & Materials to Support Your Design Strategy
Vault Recording: TBD
Additive manufacturing has been used in prototyping for many years since it was developed in 1984. Now that the technology has advanced significantly, engineers are beginning to use additive manufacturing for production-quality components. Material and printer technology are making this possible, but the most powerful tool available for refining and perfecting 3D printing for real-use parts is simulation. By using simulation, companies can expect to see a reduction of costs, a reduction in the amount of materials used, and improved time-to-market. Topics covered in this session include:
