Example text

An expert in machining must therefore analyze each part prior to it being built to ensure that it indeed can be built and to determine what methods need to be used. While it is still possible that some parts cannot be built with AM, the likelihood is much lower and there are generally ways in which this may be overcome without too much difficulty. 4 Accuracy AM machines generally operate with a resolution of a few tens of microns. It is common for AM machines to also have different resolution along different orthogonal axes.

This section discusses a range of topics where comparisons between CNC machining and AM can be made. The purpose is not really to influence choice of one technology over another rather than to establish how they may be implemented for different stages in the product development process, or for different types of product. 1 Material AM technology was originally developed around polymeric materials, waxes, and paper laminates. Subsequently, there has been introduction of composites, metals, and ceramics.

Forces, dynamics, stresses, flow, and other properties can be calculated to determine how well a design will perform under certain conditions. While such software cannot easily predict the exact 16 1 Introduction and Basic Principles behavior of a part, for analysis of critical parts a combination of CAE, backed up with AM-based experimental analysis, may be a useful solution. Further, with the advent of Direct Digital Manufacture, where AM can be used to directly produce final products, there is an increasing need for CAE tools to evaluate how these parts would perform prior to AM so that we can build these products right first time as a form of Design for Additive Manufacturing (D for AM).
