Thermoplastic 3D Printing: How to Accelerate Complex Parts Manufacture?

This is a Past Course

Recorded on Mar 6, 2019

Successfully manufacture complex 3D-printed thermoplastic parts that reach the right mechanical performance by introducing simulation early in your process:
  • Print right the first time (avoid long trial & error)
  • Control warpage
  • Optimize material selection (with or without reinforcement)

Bernard Alsteens will share advanced simulation solutions for SLS, FDM/FFF and discuss the effect of the 3D-printing process on the final performance of the part.

Why should you view this course?

Despite the popularity of 3D printing (selective laser sintering, fused deposition modelling…) in the plastics industry, the shift towards 3D manufacturing continues to be limited. The inability to print the part as designed, especially complex structures, is one the basic challenges as often warpage is observed at the end of the printing. Plus finding the right material is not easy! Print right the first time by joining this course! You will:

  • Understand how to introduce state-of-the-art simulation solution in the early stage to improve your 3D printing process (SLS, FDM/FFF)

  • Print the part as-designed including complex structures through the proper use of simulation

  • Control warpage & reach the right level of mechanical performance to print right the first time

  • Select the right thermoplastic material (with or without reinforcement) to print the part

  • Avoid long trial and error process to determine the best printing condition
