Additive.Designer is a diverse and scalable software solution for easy data preparation of complex components in additive production.
A novel pre-processing tool in the Additive.Intelligence software package, Additive.Designer combines all features necessary to generate 3D printed parts while being fully adaptable to the customer’s needs. The range of features starts with the native CAD-file import and ends by defining the necessary milling strategies to enable automatic post-processing of the AM part on a milling machine. The software imports all native CAD formats, eliminating the need for STL files, reduces the need of supports with an optimized exposure strategy, guides users to the best plate positioning with component orientation processing and offers a preliminary calculation of the build costs based on the machine and build set-up. The goal of the software is to lower the learning curve of additive manufacturing by reducing the software skills necessary to be successful while optimizing builds with less supports and workflows based on specific part preparation and two of the most important advantages of Additive.Designer are cost reduction as the result of the error avoidance and the resulting increase in the quality of the components produced.
