3D Systems to Highlight 3D Design Freedom with Direct Metal Printing Webinar

3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced its latest industrial webinar, "Complexity is Free," an in-depth look at how 3DS' advanced metal 3D printers enable manufacturers to leverage the unlimited complexity afforded by 3D printing to optimize the form and function of structural components. Through a series of real-world examples, attendees will see first-hand how 3D printing defies the limitations set by traditional manufacturing, allowing companies in a variety of industries to make end-use metal parts that weigh less, hold up to more stress and offer better performance characteristics, and operate more safely. This free webinar is scheduled for Thursday, May 14 at 11 am EDT (5 pm CET).

Freed from tooling clearances and other design limitations, manufacturers increasingly turn to 3DS' Direct Metal Printers (DMP) to produce highly complex, fully dense metal parts on demand. In just a matter of hours, engineers can create a superior part or functional assembly that is a ready to install into the most demanding end-use applications, from automotive to aerospace to personalized medical and dental care. Using 3DS' DMP printers, companies can print in a variety of metals, including aluminum, stainless steel, tool steel, cobalt chromium, titanium, and many other alloys. In addition, companies can also bring the advantage of 3D printed mass complexity to their casting processes with 3D printed patterns.

"We haven't yet realized the full potential of 3D printing, especially in the industrial arena. Designing for 3D printing requires a change in how we think about design," said Buddy Byrum, Vice President of Product Management, 3DS. "This webinar will show attendees that they can dream big without making sacrifices. New economies, better products, better functionality, vastly streamlined workflows, less post-production assembly—it's all possible with 3D printing."

This webinar will feature David Anderson of Exact Engineering who will share how he redesigned a critical aerospace bracket, reducing weight by 40%, while making the part stiffer than the original. Experts from solidThinking, a leading provider of design optimization software, will also demonstrate how easily structural components can be refined and 3D printed. Using solidThinking's Inspire software and the unlimited complexity enabled by 3D printing, designers and engineers can cut unnecessary weight and material from parts, exponentially improving performance and safety.
