Cost reduction from design to production
The new design process method offers several advantages even during production. Which makes shorter design intervals, lower print height, free part orientation, and much more.
During the design process, several boundaries can be implemented and connected together to find the best solution without the need for endless iterations and reconstruction. Time is not only saved on the engineering time but the print time duration. This is possible because of the zero mean curvature property of the minimal surfaces which positively influences the printing process with an increase in the freedom of part placement and orientation. Furthermore, the inner walls of a structure can be designed as thin as the printer allows, highly reducing the residual stresses in parts.
