3D Printing Enables Part Manufacturers to Produce Parts Quickly, On-Demand, and Sustainably!

However, a major challenge in 3D printing is controlling heat during printing, especially in geometrically-complex parts. Over 75% of unexpected 3D printing failures are heat-related, hurting customer satisfaction and contractor reputation. Hidden part defects can also endanger human safety in critical applications if not addressed systematically, even with expensive post-processing.

If the heat is too much, too little, or not uniform, Crème brûlée won’t turn out well!

How OptiScan Works

Analyze, Optimize, Control

OptiScan uses AI to look at each layer of the 3D printing process, considering the shape of the part, and how heat moves through it. It uses historical in-situ monitoring data and detailed heat models to figure out the best way to print each part. This ensures the heat is evenly spread out and controlled properly at every step, ensuring the final product comes out just right.

We need to stop competing within our echo chamber. We should be focusing on supply chain and delivering repeatable and reliable solutions. We must focus on maturing the technology.
