Metal 3D Printing — How to Get It Right First Time

By Michael Cook

To be effective in metal 3D printing, we need to be efficient during each step of the process — data preparation, building, post-processing — all while dealing with the technology’s challenges. In this presentation, we discuss finding that sweet spot where you have sufficient support to guarantee a successful build while avoiding excess support that makes post-processing too tedious.



In this recording, you will learn about:

  • The main challenges of metal 3D printing

  • How to get out of an over-supporting mindset

  • The role of simulation software in optimized support generation
