Additive Manufacturing according to CAD-Engineering-Standard


You are looking for precise additive manufacturing according to CAD engineering standards? Then take a closer look at the 4D_Additive Manufacturing software. The suite is, so to speak, the "global solution" when it comes to additive manufacturing. Unnecessary iterations and failed attempts are successfully avoided, thus guaranteeing a cost-effective product.

The robust B-Rep kernel of 4D_Additive enables quality check, repair and preparation of models in accordance to CAD-engineering standards which are based on exact geometry. In conventional 3D printing tools, CAD models are often already triangulated during the reading process and thus converted into an approximate and imprecise STL description so that further operations like a repair of modelling errors, result in significant deviations from the original shape.
4D_Additive, on the other hand, enables the check, repair and handling of the exact, original B-Rep data according to VDA 4755/2 standard and thus for the first time a continuous additive manufacturing process that is in line with CAD Engineering Standard.
Sophisticated checking and healing functions analyze the CAD models and automatically eliminate gaps, overlaps, mini-elements, twisted faces and other types of errors. Errors that are not automatically correctable, e.g. Knife edges, are displayed clearly and can be corrected within seconds by means of easy-to-use clean-up and modeling functions. 4D_Additive ensures the production of precise quality models.
