We’re settling the discussion on whether CAD or mesh is better. The truth is, both are necessary for an optimal file preparation workflow. See how we plan to integrate both into our software solution: Materialise Magics.
3D printing is a popular manufacturing technique for its speed, design capabilities, and cost-effectiveness, but the only way to truly take advantage of these benefits is by optimizing designs for AM. Discover how Hyundai Automotive did so to win a design for additive manufacturing competition.
Machine monitoring will bring more data into AM users’ hands than ever before. Thanks to our initiative with other industry leaders, we’re bringing this technology to the masses to help advance production in 3D print factories. In this blog, we touch on the top five advantages of machine monitoring in AM facilities.
The implementation of standards has greatly transformed the way numerous industries work. And now is the time to implement a standard machine language in the additive manufacturing industry. We are working together with OEMs to push forward this initiative and are already seeing the benefits with our first software project of this kind: machine monitoring.
The resources that your company uses should be used to their full potential so that you get your money’s worth. In this post, we share four ways to ensure that you’re benefiting from all of the capabilities and support that your additive manufacturing software has to offer.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s necessary for people all over the world to work from home or practice social distancing. But that doesn’t mean that working with AM has to be less productive. Here are our tips for using AM software to maintain productivity during this difficult time.
As a writer who recently joined Materialise with no prior experience in 3D printing, I was curious to join the Masterclass in Metal AM. I had heard talk of the specific processes that Metal AM called for, such as heat treatments and melt pools, and I was ready to learn more about what working with Metal 3D Printing is like. I joined a diverse group of participants from various backgrounds to discover firsthand how the Masterclass in Metal 3D Printing benefits attendees.
In this interview, we talk to Jurgen Roekens, Materialise’s Design and Engineering Director, about how the Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) process helps his clients produce exactly the right engineering solution that adds value in many different ways.
