In this short webinar we talk about Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) for both plastics and metals. Get a brief overview of additive manufacturing as a whole, where it is now and where it's going.

Then we dig into the meat and look at improvements in NX advanced manufacturing by doing some light weighting & optimizing for both metals and plastics. We kick around a few samples that we take apart and lightweight with Topology Optimization and Generative Design using the Frustum TopOp tab in NX. We also be look at lattice structures and how to use those.

Lastly we'll touch upon some of the work Sherpa Design and Applied CAx has been doing with our Carbon M2 3D printer.
