Free 3D Systems eBook Details Benefits of Part Consolidation via Metal AMMay 2, 2022
3D Systems offers a free download of its ebook, Lower Cost, Boost Efficiency: Reducing Part Count with Additive Manufacturing, which promises help in cost-effectively creating complex designs using 3D metal printing and enabling parts makers the ability to rethink their design and manufacturing processes. The ebook, with manufacturing executives, managers, engineers and designers in mind, features real-world examples that detail the benefits of part consolidation courtesy of metal additive manufacturing (AM).
In particular, the ebook addresses three key benefits of metal AM:
- Speed—Directly 3D printing a part from a CAD file dramatically cuts the time from concept to design to manufactured part.
- Design for function—AM removes the correlation between cost and complexity, enabling functionality to be the leading consideration of part design.
- Part-count reduction—By rethinking the manufacturing process, design engineers can reduce total part counts, streamline part production and elevate part performance.
