Next generation Design Software for 3D Printed Aerospace Components

software

The gap between the software and hardware capabilities in additive manufacturing poses an obstacle in taking full advantage of this disruptive manufacturing technology. We all know that 3D printed parts can reach unprecedented mechanical properties and heat efficiency, but now it is also possible to design these parts in a time efficient manner.

by Alkaios Bournias Varotsis, Additive Manufacturing Consultant, Additivist

Aerospace was one of the first industries to embrace Additive Manufacturing. In recent years, we’ve seen companies adopt AM to both drive the design of new, high-efficiency components that are impossible to manufacture with other methods and to optimise the operational efficiencies of their MRO supply chains.

Aerospace 3D Printing Conference welcomes Metal Additive Manufacturing as media partner

About Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal AM magazine is the leading news source for commercial and technical developments in the metal AM / 3D printing industry. Published quarterly in print and online, each issue features a number of exclusive in-depth articles and special features on metal AM, as well as our extensive industry news rundown. Each new issue of Metal AM, as well as the complete archive, is available to download free of charge.

Metal AM, or 3D printing, offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes. Metal MA, also known as metal 3D printing, offers unrivalled design freedom with the ability to manufacture parts from a wide range of materials.

Components that would not have even been possible just a few years ago can now be made to high standards using a wide range of metal powders. No longer solely a prototyping technology, Additive Manufacturing is now being used for the production of series components for the most demanding applications.

Additive Manufacturing, also referred to as 3D Printing, is a technology that produces three-dimensional parts layer by layer from a material, be it polymer or metal based. The method relies on a digital data file being transmitted to a machine that then builds the component.

Avio Aero 3Dprints parts for the Catalyst engine for the Cessna Denali

Up to ten GE Catalyst components will be produced in this area. The engine’s first flight is scheduled for the end of 2019. It is the first turboprop engine in the world with almost 30% of its internal metal parts 3D printed. In Brindisi, work has already begun on three of these ten additive components. This number will continue to grow as the number of GE Additive-Concept Laser machines DMLM (Direct Metal Laser Melting) does.

by Fedor Antonov, Anisoprint

Anisoprining is a new way of design and production things from composites with continuous fibers. Anisoprinted parts are stronger, lighter and cheaper than their counterparts from the other materials.

This approach to producing objects can significantly change the manufacturing process in many fields including aerospace.
