Navigating the complex terrain of additive manufacturing automation

Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) presents unique challenges that traditional manufacturing processes don't face. DfAM demands a nuanced understanding of both design intricacies and the capabilities of additive manufacturing technologies, like Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF).

Complex design adaptation

Conventional designs often do not translate well to additive manufacturing and require significant modifications for optimal production. Synera offers features such as cooling channels or triply periodic minimal surfaces (TPMS), which are crucial for manufacturability.

Efficiency in serial production

When designing parts for mass production, the balance between sophisticated design and economic feasibility becomes a critical trade-off. Synera enables designs where every element is carefully optimized for manufacturability and cost efficiency.

Optimized buildjob preparation

Synera enables the precise definition of process parameters and nesting for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and similar technologies, enabling efficient use of material and time, impacting the overall sustainability and cost of the project.

Integration of various software tools

The variety of software tools used in DfAM, each with its own API and language, complicates the process. Synera enables easy and seamless integration of these tools for an optimized workflow.

Synera has revolutionized our job preparation and design for AM at Brose. What used to take hours now takes minutes, allowing us to focus more on innovation and complex design. It allows us to create our own functions and processes that no other software can do, allowing us to do things that were impossible before.

The introduction of Synera has been a game-changer for development engineers like me. Creating end-to-end AM processes and sending the result directly to the 3D printer has simplified component development to a great extent. The resulting benefits in time savings, weight reduction, and part quality are unbelievably.

Advantages of Synera in overcoming DfAM challenges

Automated workflow efficiency

Synera eliminates repetitive manual tasks in additive manufacturing through its automation workflows. This approach ensures that processes like adapting existing parts for AM, serial part design, and buildjob preparation are executed flawlessly, enhancing efficiency and reducing the risk of human error. The result is a significant boost in productivity, allowing engineers to concentrate on innovation and design excellence.

Unified software integration

With Synera, the challenge of integrating diverse CAD, CAE, CAM and PLM tools disappears. Our platform offers connectivity across various software tools, including leading solutions and specialized DfAM tools. This unified ecosystem helps engineers make the right choice in AM with ease, fostering a more cohesive and efficient design and manufacturing process.

Advanced design capabilities for AM

Synera excels in transforming traditional CAD designs into additive manufacturing masterpieces. Our platform integrates advanced DfAM tools like voxel, polynurbs, implicit modeling and generative design, allowing engineers to create designs that are not just adapted but fundamentally built for additive manufacturing processes like SLS and LPBF. This integrated approach ensures that designs are optimized for manufacturability, sustainability, and cost, paving the way for groundbreaking innovations in additive manufacturing.
