The growing popularity of additive manufacturing (AM) is reshaping the manufacturing industry, creating opportunities for bigger and more complicated parts. Those looking to invest in AM as a way to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry must not only decide in which machines and capabilities to invest—they must also ensure that these highly-specialized machine tools are protected from potential failures and that the final parts match the intended designs.

In this webinar, you'll learn how additive simulation software can allow you to overcome design constraints and safely push the boundaries of what's possible in the highly complex world of additive manufacturing.

Join CGTech to hear how AddUp, an industry-leading manufacturer of metal AM machines, utilizes Vericut software to test a variety of build techniques to find the most efficient way to manufacture complex parts in ways that previously weren't possible. Using Vericut to run simulation tests to verify laser activity and detect potential collisions, AddUp saves hours of manufacturing time and ensures parts are built efficiently and without machine downtime or project delays.
