nTop Live: Automated Build Preparation for Metal Additive Manufacturing with nTop Platform

When designing for metal Additive Manufacturing technologies such as metal powder bed fusion, part orientation plays a very important role because it determines the location and amount of support structures required to complete the build.

In this nTop Live, Ryan O’Hara, Technical Director of Aerospace and Defense at nTopology, presents nTop Workflows that enable you to automate your Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) processes during the design evaluation and build-prep phases to maximize the value of your work.

Watch and learn how to:

  • Estimate build time and manufacturing costs during the design evaluation phase
  • Determine the optimal build orientation during the build preparation phase
  • Use nTop Platform’s Command Line User Interface to automate the whole process and reuse it on multiple designs
