Additive Manufacturing: Fixed Plane Deposition or Powder Bed (Live Demo)
Track: NX CAM and Tecnomatix User Connection
Additive manufacturing is changing the way products are made. New revolutionary machines and processes are rapidly pushing additive manufacturing from the prototype environment onto the production floor. Manufacturers are producing breakthrough product designs that were impossible to make using traditional methods. The benefits that additive production methods can provide include weight savings, better performance, simplified assemblies and more material options. NX provides a single, integrated system that meets the unique challenges of designing, optimizing and building components for the latest additive manufacturing methods. This session with introduce and demonstrate the new NX Additive Manufacturing application that allows users to prepare print jobs (select a printer, add and position components either manually or through 3D Nesting, create support structures, assign build strategies and produce printer-specific output) for powder bed 3D printing of metal and plastic parts.
