STEP 1: 3D Modeling
The process of 3D metal printing starts with (the development of) a digital 3D model. For this we use software such as Creo Elements, Inspire, FEM, Fluid CFD, topology optimization. If you already have digital 3D model available, you can supply it to us in the file formats *step, *sat, *3mf, *stl.
If a digital 3D model is not (yet) available, we can be of service. Then use a process called reverse engineering. Based on an existing product, 2D drawing, sketch or image, our 3D engineers create a digital model that is suitable for our printers. We then give advice on possible improvements, choice of material and printing technique.
