Planning and design for Additive Manufacturing

BEAMIT Group uses state-of-the-art Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) techniques to design components optimized for 3D printing.

DfAM takes full advantage of the design freedom offered by Additive Manufacturing to create more complex shapes, reduce weight and material consumption, and optimize component production costs.
All DfAM techniques, even the simplest, require perfect understanding of the specific Additive Manufacturing technologies used to print product geometries.

Some advanced techniques employ computational tools. One of these is topology optimization: this method takes the characteristics of a project and engineers and redesigns a component by using software to alter product geometry to ensure optimal material distribution and guarantee functional conformity and minimized weight.
This flips the traditional approach to design completely on its head: a combination of Finite Element Analysis is used not only to analyze and validate an existing design, but to generate the shape of the finished component straight from its design.
