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.

Over time Ziad Melham, one of PADT’s support engineers, has developed a variety of tips and tricks for ANSYS Mechanical that he shares with users when providing them with support. In this video, Ziad shares that same information with all users.
Users of ANSYS mechanical, both new and experienced, will find them helpful in making their simulation pre- and post-processing more efficient. Please enjoy and do not hesitate to share with your co-workers.
The long-term promise of 3D Printing has always been using the technology to replace traditional manufacturing as a way to make production parts.
Carbon is turning the 3D printing world upside down by introducing real production capabilities with their systems, and now that PADT has joined Carbon’s Production Partner Program, on-demand manufacturing using 3D Printing is now a reality in the Southwestern US.
Check out part one of our three part interview series with Carbon’s Production Engineer, Johnathon Wright and PADT’s Additive Manufacturing Solutions Account Manager Renee Palacios, as they answer some of the most frequently asked questions about Carbon’s manufacturing capabilities, and explore what benefits PADT can provide as a Carbon Production Partner.
There were some changes in ANSYS SpaceClaim to the very useful tool that lets you create a surface patch on scan or STL data at 18.0. In this video we show how to create corner points for a surface patch boundary and how to get an accurate measurement of how far the surface you create deviates from the STL or scan data underneath.
We are pleased to announce the new Flownex Training Course for Flownex SE, the world’s best (we think) thermal-fluid modeling tool. The Flownex course is aimed at new users with a desire to quickly equip themselves in the basics of system modelling as well as enabling one to visually refresh one’s memory on the various capabilities and applications within the Flownex suite.
If you are not a user already but want to check this tool out by going through the training course, go to the login page and simply click “Don’t have an account?” and register. This will get you access and we will follow up with a temp key so you can try it out. This is actually the best way for you to get a feel for why we like this program so much.
Here is a list of the sessions:
Session 1: Background to Flownex
Session 2: Page navigation
Session 3: Boundary values
Session 4: Pumps & Fixed mass flow functionality
Session 5: Flow restrictions
Session 6: Exercise 1
Session 7: Designer functionality
Session 8: Heat Exchangers
Session 9: Containers
Session 10: Exercise 2
Session 11: Excel component
Session 12: Visualization
As always, If you have any questions or want to know more, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.800.293.PADT.
ANSYS Mechanical allows you to specify settings for load steps one at a time. Most users don’t know that you can change settings for any combination of load steps using the selection of the load step graph. PADT’s Joe Woodward shows you how in this short but informative video.
Product Development is a key part of what PADT does, but we often struggle with sharing what we do in this area and why we do it better. We are engineers. To help, we put together this video that asks our engineers the key questions that customers ask every day, and their answers truly do show how “We Make Innovation Work.”

Metal Additive Manufacturing, or Metal 3D Printing, is a topic that generates a lot of interest, and even more questions. So we held a webinar on February 9th, 2016 to try and answer the most common questions we encounter. It was a huge success with over 150 people logging in to watch live. But many of you could not make it so we have put the slides and a recording of the webinar out there. Just go to this link to access the information.
The presentation answered the fllowing common questions:
Who are PADT and Concept Laser?
How does laser-based metal 3D printing work?
Are there other ways to 3D print in metal and how do they compare?
What are the different process steps involved?
How “good” are 3D printed metal parts?
What materials and machines do you offer?
Who uses this technology today?
What is the value proposition of metal 3D printing for me?
What can I do after this webinar?
As always, our technical team is available to answer any additional questions you may have. Just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 480.813.4884.
We just recieved a new tech tip bundle from ANSYS, Inc on Electromechanical Simulation. You may remember when we published the Mechanical and Fluids ANSYS tech tips a few weeks ago. This latest kit continues with information for people making devices and systems that have mechanical and electrical systems. The focus of the kit is the application of ANSYS Maxwell and Simplorer – Maxwell to model low frequency electromagnetics and Simplorer to model systems.
Here is a link to “The Electromechanical Simulation Productivity Kit ” here. The kit includes:
ANSYS Maxwell Automation and Customization Application Brief
ANSYS Maxwell Magnetic Field Formulation Application Brief
Electric Machine Design Methodology Whitepaper
Electromagnetics And Thermal Multiphysics Analysis Webinar
Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery Whitepaper
Robust Electric Machine Design – ANSYS Advantage Article
We also have a collection of videos that are a great introduction to the tool set and how to use it. Check out the overview and the video on the washing machine at a minimum. Even if you have a simple EMAG or do hand calcs, you need to look at Maxwell and Simplorer.
