Custom support structures for additive manufacturing
Published on April 8, 2020
Support structures are the hidden cost of metal additive manufacturing. For optimal and predictable results, designing your own custom support structures is often necessary.
In this nTop Live, Annika Norden, Customer Success Engineer at nTop, demonstrates how to customize and automate support structure generation using reusable workflows in nTop.
Watch and learn how to:
- Import and define the areas where support structures are required
- Control overhang angle, support type, and all other relevant parameters
- Modify the geometry of the interface between the part and the support
