Video: Siemens And Materialize Bring Their Solutions Together
Through efficient use of the Materialize technology, the NX software from Siemens for CAD, CAM and CAE enables the CAD models for 3D printing to be prepared precisely and completely based on powder bed melting and application technologies. This can reduce the time from completed product design to a fully 3D printed part by 30% or more. A partnership agreement between the two companies enables Siemens' Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software division to distribute the integrated solution through its global sales channels.
Driving additive manufacturing as a tool
"Today's announcement is a huge step forward in making additive manufacturing a common practice for our customers," said Zvi Feuer, senior vice president of manufacturing engineering software at Siemens PLM Software. “Until now, manufacturers have required two separate systems in the additive manufacturing process - one for product design and another to prepare this product design for 3D printing. The data translation problems and the lack of associativity between these two systems resulted in a time-consuming and error-prone process. By eliminating these problems, we are helping to advance additive manufacturing as a widely recognized production tool.”

Fast design-to-production process
The new solution connects NX with the applications of Materialize for the creation of lattice and support structures, for the automated efficient arrangement of components as well as for the preparation of building platforms and with the Materialize Build Processor technology for additive manufacturing. This eliminates data translations and conversions; and it ensures that changes to digital design models are automatically and associatively taken into account in the 3D print jobs. The result is greater model accuracy, higher quality and a much faster design-to-production process.
"Additive manufacturing is a reality today, even in highly regulated markets like aerospace and healthcare," said Johan Pauwels, Executive Vice President at Materialize. “By merging the solutions from Siemens and Materialize, we optimize and simplify the workflow for the design, construction and manufacture of components. In the past 25 years, our neutral approaches have pushed the boundaries of additive manufacturing technologies. We are very excited to be working with Siemens, who truly understands large-scale industrial manufacturing environments and shares our belief that designers and engineers can develop better products when additive manufacturing is embedded in their day-to-day business processes.”
The current version of NX (NX 11.0.1) offers a first set of technologies via new modules for additive manufacturing. (mz)
