Sunata™ Automatically orients parts AND generates the necessary support structures based on computational simulations.
Export your CAD drawing as an STL file and upload to Sunata™
Sunata™ analyzes over 100 orientations to determine optimal orientation and support structure to mitigate thermal distortion
Output is ready for print file(s) – Oriented Part (STL,3MF) and Supports (3MF, CLI or STL)
Currently during part builds, support structures are not only essential to laying part foundations and providing structural support, but also are critical to eliminating part warp during powder recoating and improving heat extraction. However, few rules exist for designing support structures. Moreover, while AM software packages have the ability to add support structures, these existing capabilities are fairly primitive, not taking into consideration part orientation, distortion, or heat extraction uniformity.
Atlas3D takes care of all that for you.
