Esprit CAM software developer DP Technology (Camarillo, CA) supports additive manufacturing with software specifically for powder bed fusion (PBF). Esprit Additive for Powder Bed comes as an add-in application for the SolidWorks CAD program.

With PBF, a heat source (often, but not always, a laser beam) melts and fuses powdered material together to create a 3D object. When preparing a part for manufacturing, the application’s Part-to-Build feature automatically assigns exposure strategies based on simple inputs from the user. The software also introduces a slicer that boosts accuracy thanks to a parametric workflow model. Once the part is ready to slice, it may be imported to the job environment as many times as needed.

This optimized workflow saves users even more time by eliminating the need to repeatedly define the manufacturing information. Additive for Powder Bed Fusion improves consistency by ensuring a part is built the same way each time and maintains traceability by recording each step from the original 3D CAD file.
