What is Additive Manufacturing?

Additive Manufacturing, colloquially known as 3D printing, is a transformative technology that has reinvented the process of creating three-dimensional objects. Using a digital file as its blueprint, additive manufacturing constructs items layer by layer, essentially “adding” material rather than carving or moulding it. This approach stands in contrast to traditional, “subtractive” manufacturing methods, which often involve cutting away excess material from a larger block.

The ability to construct complex shapes with high precision marks a significant advancement in manufacturing capabilities. Additive manufacturing technology brings intricate designs to life, enabling the creation of parts and products that would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to produce with conventional methods.

Beyond the versatility and precision it offers, additive manufacturing is recognised for its speed and cost-efficiency. Where traditional manufacturing processes can take weeks or months to set up, additive manufacturing can produce ready-to-use parts in a matter of hours. This rapid turnaround time is a game-changer in product development, enabling faster iterations and reducing time-to-market.

Despite its many advantages, there are still several misconceptions about additive manufacturing that often lead to hesitation in its adoption. To help clear up some of these misconceptions, we’ve compiled an article that delves into these common myths and reveals the true potential of 3D printing. You can check out the article here.

Featuring SolidWorks and Markforged

SolidWorks is a leading software suite for 3D computer-aided design (CAD). Renowned for its user-friendly interface and robust features, SolidWorks empowers engineers and designers to transform innovative ideas into tangible products. The platform’s tools facilitate all phases of product development, including design, validation, technical communication, and data management. SolidWorks is celebrated globally for its ability to streamline the design process and improve productivity.

On the other hand, Markforged is a distinguished player in the additive manufacturing industry. Markforged’s mission is to reinvent manufacturing by addressing the common limitations of 3D printing while providing design freedom, efficient production processes, and high-strength parts. Their line of industrial and metal 3D printers have set new standards for what businesses can achieve with additive manufacturing.

The synergy between SolidWorks and Markforged is one of design creativity meeting advanced production capabilities. SolidWorks allows for the conception and design of intricate, complex structures. In turn, Markforged brings these designs to life with its high-quality 3D printers. By using SolidWorks to create their models and Markforged to print them, businesses can rapidly produce sturdy, functional components that meet their unique specifications.

This upcoming event showcases the power of collaboration between Centralian Controls, Central Innovation, and Markforged. Participants will get a chance to see how these partnerships can help businesses streamline operations, improve manufacturing processes, and bring their designs to life more efficiently.

Witness first-hand the integration of SolidWorks and Markforged technologies, and explore how additive manufacturing can optimize your business operations.
