3D Printing Software / Additive Manufacturing

Why 3D Printing?

Additive Manufacturing continues to be a force that will change supply chains and products like few other technologies that we have seen.  To take advantage of the possibilities that additive manufacturing brings, it is critical to be able rethink how your product could be.​

NX provides an end to end solution for model preparation, optimization, lattice structure creation, nesting, support structure development, virtual testing, and print model creation.

Here a some of the key capabilities provided and the benefits:

  • Generative Design - Allows the loads and constraints to be defined and have the system determine the shape of the product through an integrated NX based solution with Frustum

  • Topology Optimization- Takes an initial design and iterates it to remove material while continuing to meet the load conditions leveraging world-class technology from Simcenter 3D

  • Convergent Modeling - This is game changing technology within the workflow of designing for additive manufacturing.  It allows the created model to be modify without having to recreate the geometry.  It shortens the iterative design cycle.

  • Integrations - Siemens continues to build an additive manufacturing network with key machine builders like HP, EOS and others to be the forefront of an integrated design to manufacturing tool chain
