Despite the intricate geometrical possibilities with laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) for metal components, the necessity for support structures has traditionally been a problem. These supports, fundamental for overhangs and securing pieces to the build platter to reduce stress and deformities in the part, seemed an inevitable downside of metal LPBF. Presently, however, manufacturers of 3D printers such as 3D Systems are discovering methods to bypass their requirement.

In an exclusive webinar, Dr. Pierre Van Cauwenbergh, Product Manager for NoSupportsTM at 3D Systems, and Allan Huntington, Application Expert, introduce the world to the company’s innovative NoSupportsTM technology. As a part of the 3DXpert software from 3D Systems, NoSupportsTM cuts down the requirements for support structures in Direct Metal Printing, their take on metal LPBF. This software update broadens the overall design possibilities, speeds up the design process, and opens the doors to new uses.

The webinar aims to enlighten the attendees about the value and typical applications of NoSupportsTM. It offers valuable insights from two gripping case studies in healthcare and industrial applications. They will be highlighting how NoSupportsTM technology, when used in conjunction with high-efficiency printing strategies, can enhance efficiency, shorten processing times, and reduce costs across the entire additive manufacturing process, all while maintaining superior part quality.

Dr. Pierre Van Cauwenbergh, the main brain behind the NoSupportsTM development program holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science Engineering with metal AM specialization and carries more than six years of industry experience. Working closely with the Oqton’s Development Engineers and Application Experts, Van Cauwenbergh has been instrumental in delivering a user-friendly and robust solution without support leading to customer satisfaction. Allan Huntington, based at the 3D Systems’ Littleton, Colorado facility, assists the Application Innovation Group in cracking tough AM challenges. He mainly focuses on advanced laser parameter development, in addition to software and process validations for new features and direct metal printer line materials.
