As the technology advances in additive manufacturing, users need a better way to evaluate the feasibility of producing additively-manufactured parts amidst the constantly changing field of machines, materials and processes. SME and our partners through ITEAM are building a new Rapid Additive Manufacturing Platform, SAM-CT, that will answer the million-dollar questions:
Can I print it?
Should I print it?
What’s the best machine, material and process for a particular part?
The open platform provides a virtual repository of AM machine/material capabilities with evaluation tools to enable users to determine their parts’ suitability to be manufactured additively.
Are you waffling on 3D printing a part?
Stop by the SME booth (#2339) at RAPID + TCT 2018 to try out the SAM-CT platform and learn more about ITEAM. Once you find the answers you need, head over to the waffle station to reward yourself with a tasty waffle!
