Frequently Asked Questions
Additive manufacturing is referring to several manufacturing processes which produce three dimensional objects. It is used in a variety of industries including Medical, Aerospace and Industrial. Additive manufacturing can also be found within every step of the product lifecycle, from prototype to production.
Additive manufacturing has many benefits, some of the most widely used applications are, Bill of Materials consolidation or making a complex assembly less complicated. It also allows designers and engineers more freedom to create geometries that were never before possible, this is quite useful in applications such as light weighting. Additive Manufacturing has a larger part in Industry 4.0, where it can be part of a diversified and distributed supply chain allowing parts to be produced virtually anywhere.
We will validate your design prior to printing it, but one major design consideration to make is wall thickness. Features tend to print better with a wall thickness around 1.0mm. Thinner walls can be executed but it is significantly more difficult to replicate consistency at production.
