Key Software Capabilities
- Lattice structures
Jonathan Buckley, Amplify Additive
In this presentation, Jonathan Buckley, Sr. AM Application Engineer with Amplify Additive, goes over the utilization of the nTop in combination with Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology to generate lattice structures for AM designed implants. nTop has the capability to utilize innovative techniques for lattice generation, which are required to maximize bone in-growth for optimal fixation of implants and result in improved patient outcomes. These techniques will be demonstrated by Jonathan along with EBM fabricated implants that incorporate nTop lattice structures.
- nTop, when utilized with EBM technology, results in the most optimal AM implants in the market compared to other AM technologies
- Utilization of nTop in a production or R&D setting is seamless and allows the user to organize their workflows for efficiency
- As AM becomes more commonplace in various manufacturing industries, further optimizations will allow nTop to reduce the number of AM software steps needed for DfAM
