Additive Manufacturing

Explore unimaginable shapes while respecting design specifications

Additive manufacturing techniques provide designers with the means to innovate quickly to create attractive shapes and patterns by physically testing their designs. Increasingly complex products require companies to optimize designs by reducing weight and increasing strength so that they are lightweight and sturdy.

With Additive Manufacturing, designers have generative shape modeling tools to design high-quality shapes that can be produced with a 3D printer. Conceptual and detailed organic shapes are automatically generated from design sketches considerably reducing design time. Through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s virtual simulation capabilities, structural integrity is validated before production, thereby reducing material waste as well.
