AM-Studio

Your path to Component Processing – Simple and Fast. AM-Studio stands for Successful Data Processing for Additive Manufacturing.

Key Benefits

AM-Studio

Additive manufacturing encourages design freedom and efficiency. Why thus waste time for the processing of your components for 3D-printing unnecessarily?

With AM-Studio we offer you a lean and efficient tool which significantly reduces your Time2Print. Our guided process leads you through the most important steps of data processing and supports you during the decision-making regarding your optimal part orientation, the correct support geometry model, and the appropriate light exposure strategy. AM-Studio enables you to implement successful and situation-specific data preparation for additive manufacturing. Intuitive and without any cost-intensive special training.

Constantly-Updated Support Geometry

  • Clear aggregation of regions to be supported
  • Easy support for individual divisions or entire components
  • Novel, metal-optimized Tree and AdaptiveCell support services
  • Up to 40 % of time, volume and material savings
  • Automated recalculation of support geometry after changes of geometry or position of the component
  • Completely parametrizable support geometry
  • Simplified post-processing
  • Predefined templates for partially automated support geometry generation
  • Additional templates for support strategies freely definable

Automation Option

  • Fully automated manner of data preparation process
  • Requirements-oriented, individual and secure working environment

Comprehensive Development Competence

Longstanding experience in CAD-development and practical orientation have been integrated directly into the development of AM-Studio since 2016 and encompasses of AM-Studio since 2016 and encompasses

  • Features and functions far surpassing market standards
  • Adaption and individualization of functions by users at any time

Best Orientation

Determination of the ideal orientation in the sense of

  • Construction time
  • Required, but minimal support geometry
  • Thermal warping to be expected
  • Surface finish quality to be expected

THE DESIGN PROCESS

IN 8 STEPS

1 Start. Import of components to be manufactured and selection of desired machine. Choice of appropriate palette configuration of your AM-LOCK system*

2 Orientation. Determination of the optimal position for your component via OrientationMaps

3 Support. Aggregation of all surfaces to be supported to Support Regions and assignment with support structures. Choice of the ideal Support Types out of common support geometries as well as special support types.

4 Nesting. Duplication of multipale instances (copies) of a part in the form of a matrix model within the Nesting. This guarantees identical processing parameters though through changes.

5 Build Strategy. Definition and assignment of required process parameters within the Build Strategy, by application common as well as additional CADS Additive specific expanded parameters. Creation of construction slices based on this.

6 Viewer. Verification of created slices within the Slice-Viewer.

7 Documentation and export. Export of data in required and supported export format.
