Validate 3D Parts Before Printing
25 November 2022 | Sabina Gonzalez-George
The Markforged range of composite fibre and industrial high-temperature 3D printers combined with the smart Eiger software platform makes it easy to solve tough manufacturing problems.
The latest release from Markforged is Simulation. This powerful software is designed to take the guesswork out of the performance of the finished 3D printed part, by validating part strength and optimising parameters before printing.
Where total confidence is required in the strength and performance of the part, Simulation removes the need for repeat design-print-break test cycles, external part analysis and the "over-building" of parts - adding in too much reinforcing fibre or excess infill settings.
What benefits does Simulation bring?
Simulation is an automated way to validate part performance, through the Markforged print preparation software platform, Eiger. Simlation enables the user to validate a part prior to print and select an optimised print setting (with or without fibre), based on the unique required performance parameters.
How does Simulation work?
Simulation enables the Markforged user to validate part strength and stiffness. The software suggests optimised print configurations to reduce print time or material costs
