Overview

What if you could design the ideal structural part with limited constraints, and use the freedom of complexity that metal 3D printing enables to make that part a reality? Too many structural components are designed with more weight and material than what's actually required. With new simulation and optimization software, structurally efficient parts are easy to design -- saving cost, strengthening durability, and improving safety. And with industrial 3D printing, users can easily and cost-effectively print these parts directly or indirectly in their choice of metal alloys.

This webinar will showcase how 3D printing enables better products through mass complexity. Attendees will learn how 3D printing is being used to produce parts that are lighter weight, stronger, better performing and safer. We will feature real world customers who have designed radically better products that can only be made via additive manufacturing. Multiple case studies will be shared that show how real-world users have amplified the benefits of additive manufacturing by coupling it with simulation and optimization software. Case studies will include the redesign of a critical aerospace bracket, reducing weight by an incredible 70%, even while making the part stiffer, a fully 3D printed bike frame, metal 3D printed locomotive parts, and more.

Join us to learn more about taking full advantage of the design and manufacturing process that is allowing hundreds or companies to create better performing parts faster than ever before.
