Join this workshop to gain insight on polymer and metal 3D printing, focusing on design and 3D printing process simulation. You will gain knowledge on how to design for additive manufacturing and what are some challenges in the 3D printing process, as well as gain some experience with CAE software tools. Find out more about the answers to these questions:

  • Why invest in Design and 3D printing software solutions?
  • How does Polymer and Metal  (DMLS) 3D printing change the way parts are designed and manufactured?
  • What are the advantages and limitations of 3D printing?
  • How can engineering simulation help in additive manufacturing?
  • What is the ROI on 3D printing software solutions? – Driving growth and saving costs
