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 unnecessarily during the processing of your components for 3D-printing?

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 % in time, volume and material savings
  • Automated recalculation of support geometry after changes in geometry or the position of the component
  • Completely parametrizable support geometry
  • Simplified post-processing
  • Pre-defined templates for partially-automated support geometry generation
  • Additional templates for support strategies are 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 also includes

  • 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 for 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 to support structures. Choice of the ideal support types beyond the common support geometries as well as special support types.

4 Nesting. Duplication of multi-pale instances (copies) of a part in the form of a matrix model within the nesting. Moreover, this guarantees identical processing parameters even if changes are made.

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 into the required and supported export format.
