About the presentation
Companies are rapidly developing additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities within their digital transformation strategies because it helps make better parts faster while optimizing processes and keeping costs down. From aerospace and automotive, to consumer goods and medical, companies use 3D printing to increase production efficiencies, deliver greater customization, and achieve an overall shorter time-to-market. However, implementing industrial 3D printing comes with challenges such as transitioning from low volume to high volume production, increasing part complexity, and maintaining product quality when scaling a project to meet the industry’s growing requirements. This session reveals how advanced 3D scanning technologies resolve challenges and facilitate the development of strong digital manufacturing strategies to support AM. Audience members will learn how to perform efficient dimensional verification on the complex and free-form shapes 3D printing enables, including GD&T analysis and material thickness. Attendees will also understand how to achieve near-net-shape optimization using warpage and shrinkage compensation to create an accurate model for 3D printing, how to use 3D scanning technologies for 3D printer calibration, and how to leverage PMI/MBD within digital engineering tasks to streamline manufacturing workflow. In addition, this session explores 3D scan data use throughout all AM stages, from design and 3D printing, to post-processing and the final part. It also shows how to use accurate data to perform trend analysis and move from low and high-volume inspection requirements.
