ITAMCO Wins Contract with US Air Force to Develop 3D-Printed Runway Mat

ITAMCO (Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Companies) is part of a team developing a new runway mat for the United States Air Force. Runway mats are a critical component of Expeditionary Airfields (EAFs). EAFs are portable airfields that can be constructed, used, broken down after the completion of a mission, and moved to another site for […]

Plugging GPUs into the Metal AM Workflow

Additive manufacturing (AM) is bridging the gap between what designers can envision and machinists can fabricate. Manufacturability is just as defining for AM as it is for traditional factory processes. The thing and act of its making are still intertwined. Metal AM is just now “becoming mainstream enough that people are starting to talk about […]

Guide to 3D Printing Simulations

3D printing simulation is become widespread for 3D printing processes. All3DP has released an article giving an overview of when to use these valuable tools. Simulation enables engineers to predict or estimate how a material will behave under a specific set of constraints or conditions. The ability to simulate the additive manufacturing process to compensate […]

Atlas 3D Sunata is Now GPU Enabled for 3D Printing Simulation

Metal Additive Manufacturing isn’t cheap. Machines cost millions and the materials can cost thousands of dollars per kilogram. Failed builds are not welcome. Atlas 3D has the solution for this with Sunata and it’s now faster with GPU processing now enabled. “Atlas 3D has democratized the black art of additive manufacturing by providing our customers […]

Engineering.com Takes a Look at Sunata™

Engirneering.com recently took a look at the current state of 3D printing simulation software. They spoke to Atlas 3D about its cloud-based, International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)-compliant software solution known as Sunata. Atlas 3D was founded in 2017 and developed Sunata as a plug-in for Autodesk Inventor. Soon realizing the full potential value of […]

Sunata™ Now GPU Enabled

Atlas 3D’s Sunata software is now GPU enabled. The results: Computations are sometimes 20 times faster than by using the basic CPU of your computer. Head over to Fabbaloo to read a complete write-up about the new feature.     Click Here to Read the full post about Sunata.

3D Logics Utilizes Atlas 3D’s Sunata

3D Logics is now utilizing the Sunata™ platform with their EOS M290 3D printer. 3D Logics is a professional 3D printing and design services company based in Hillsboro, Oregon. They specialize in everything 3D printing, and focus on SLS plastics, DMLS metals, 3D design, part optimization, and 3D scanning. 3D Logics strives to provide quality […]

Easing Additive Manufacturing Design

3D MetalPrinting Magazine recently released a blog post highlighting part orientation in additive manufacturing. Optimizing the orientation on the build plate can be difficult, but proper orientation optimizes support-structures, minimizes thermal distortion, reduces part completion time, and helps produce optimal parts. Getting to the right orientation is tricky. Often there is no “right” orientation, only […]

New Sunata Features Highlighted on the Fabbaloo Blog

Fabbloo recently released a blog post highlighting Atlas 3D’s new features. The article highlighted Distortion Compensation and Intelligent Nesting, two new features Sunata™ now offers.     Click Here to Read the full article.

New Sunata Feature – Nesting

Sunata™, the fastest and most accurate software tool in addressing thermal distortion in metal additive, now intelligently NESTs jobs!   What it does Users can now use Sunata™ to intelligently nest their jobs by: Prioritizing geometries on the build plate Optimize the entire build plate for a single factor Minimum Thermal Distortion Minimum Build Time […]
