Scale Your Additive Manufacturing Business With Altair’s Design For Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) Solutions

Published on:

Altair allows your additive manufacturing business to save substantial prototyping costs using simulation-driven design, advanced analytics, and high-performance computing (HPC). The best part? Altair’s top-notch software is available to startups at an 80% discount including 16 hours of bonus expert consultation.

A few years ago, additive manufacturing was mainly associated with rapid prototyping, research projects, and advanced engineering teams. Today, many organizations are looking to additive manufacturing technologies as a production solution as well.

The Altair Startup Program helps startups develop innovative solutions, reduce development times, and lower costs throughout the product lifecycle, from concept design to in-service operation.

Altair & Additive Manufacturing

Recent developments in simulation software technologies are consolidating the decision making into a single environment. Altair’s design for additive manufacturing solutions streamline the process with robust and accessible design and simulation tools. Altair’s simulation products comprise of:

  • Topology optimization
  • Simulation-driven design
  • Manufacturing simulation
  • Design-centric simulation

Altair provides software that goes beyond the creation of unique prototypes assuring performance and manufacturability.

Benefits Of Altair’s Simulation Technology

  1. Additive manufacturing for production: Identifying high-value parts and business cases, where additive manufacturing offers a commercial alternative to conventional manufacturing techniques.
  2. Printing right, the first time: Quickly understand possible defects before printing. Effectively influence changes to product design and process, all in a single environment.
  3. Designing optimal parts: Create high-performance designs specific to any additive manufacturing process, with the least amount of post-processing and optimizing the trial and error conditions.
