DESIGN FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
Designing Products Specifically for 3D Printing Using DfAM
At Nexus3, we understand the strengths and weaknesses of each AM process and can help you select the correct technology for your application. We follow a structured plan that encourages brainstorming and ensures creative solutions for your projects. The plan produces rapid results and is designed to avoid “over the wall” designs where manufacturing feedback is received late in the design process.
Here is how it works.
Step 1 – We clearly define the product application and requirements.
Step 2 – We brainstorm design and manufacturing ideas that will fulfill the product requirements.
Is this project a good candidate for Additive Manufacturing?
What is the objective of the design?
What materials will be used?
Which AM process is best suited for this project?
Are there any industry regulations to consider?
Step 3 – We generate the solution(s), prototype the products, evaluate the results, and repeat until a final solution is reached.
Using this process allows us to rapidly converge on a final solution for your project. Feedback is quickly incorporated, and more prototypes are evaluated in a shorter period of time.
Contact us if you are considering Additive Manufacturing technology for your next product, or if you are in the process of redesigning an existing product. We can help you evaluate performance and cost benefits such as consolidation of parts, complex geometries, weight reduction, and customization.
