On-Demand Metal 3D Printing

Desktop Metal was created to change the way companies bring products to market with metal 3D printing. Current metal 3D printing is often too expensive or industrial for many potential users. Fundamentally different approaches were needed to offer a different way to produce metal parts for prototyping and in production.

That’s where Desktop Metal comes in.

Join us for an in-depth look at the Desktop Metal workflow from 3D model all the way to a finished printed part. For more information, visit our website here or contact us via email at sales@padtinc.com

Introducing ANSYS Cloud Compute – Webinar

Engineering simulation has long been constrained by fixed computing resources available on a desktop or cluster. Today, however, cloud computing can deliver the on-demand, high performance computing (HPC) capacity required for faster high-fidelity results offering greater performance insight.

ANSYS Cloud delivers the speed, power and compute capacity of cloud computing directly to your desktop — when and where you need it. You can run larger, more complex and more accurate simulations to gain more insight into your product — or you can evaluate more design variations to find the optimal design without long hardware/software procurement and deployment delays.

Join PADT’s Application & Simulation Support Engineer Sina Ghods for a look at how ANSYS is working to drive adoption by providing users a ready to use cloud service that offers: 

  • Reduced Turnaround Time
  • More Accurate Results
  • Access to More Complex/Larger Models
  • Secure Workflows
  • And Much More

Introducing Additive to Automation with End-of-Arm Tooling – Case Study

In the factory of the future automation is king.

Manufacturers can drastically reduce lead times, reduce labor costs, and increase overall efficiency through the use of robotics at several stages in their workflow, each performing a different function. While each function serves a unique purpose specific to the task it will execute, they all utilize an essential component known as End-of-Arm tooling (EOAT).

Traditionally, companies that produce EOAT have used extruded aluminum, or machined aluminum frames, often making them heavy and cumbersome. One manufacturer however, has found a solution to reduce weight without sacrificing strength or durability, using 3D printing.

Download the case study to learn more about additive manufacturing’s place on the factory floor, and how you can use it to eliminate the need for heavy and overly complex parts.

Create parts that are 50% lighter, and designed based on your needs, not limited by your manufacturing process.

Discussing Tools for AM with Softwareconnect.com

With the substantial growth of more advanced manufacturing technologies over the past decade, the engineering world has seen additive manufacturing lead the way towards the future of innovation.


While the process of additive manufacturing, has proven to yield valuable results that can drastically reduce lead time and overall cost, without an effective design and an in-depth understanding of the process behind it end users of the tool will struggle to achieve the high-quality results they initially envisioned.

PADT’s Principle and Co-Owner Eric Miller sat down with David Budiac of Software Connect to discuss the use of software when it comes to Additive Manufacturing, including integrating MES & QMS into your process, specific steps for ensuring success with AM software.

Check out the blog post featuring notes from their discussion here.

Webinar Replay – Drop Test Simulation: Analyze Stress & Deformation without Breaking Your Device

Wouldn’t it be useful to be able to determine BEFORE the drop, whether the component would survive?

Drop tests have become a key part of the product development process of various companies, and are commonly used to assess the integrity of parts and assemblies when it comes to commercial consumer goods, and electronic components. Physical drop tests are time consuming and, due to their nature, result in often substantial material costs.

This is where simulation comes in handy.

Don’s miss a replay of our webinar covering the importance of drop testing and how ANSYS simulation have help you to achieve similar results quicker, cheaper, and more efficiently.
