3Din30 Recap: From Art to Science: Fool Proofing Your Metal AM Process

3Din30 is Velo3D’s Youtube and LinkedIn Live channel featuring speakers from multiple links in the additive manufacturing supply chain. We discuss new topics about every 2 weeks. Each session lasts about 30 minutes.

Episode 36: From Art to Science – Fool Proofing Your Metal AM Process


In this 3Din30, experts discuss the challenges and solutions involved in metal additive manufacturing, focusing on the skills required for successful builds and the complexities of geometries. They explore how PanOptimization software can predict and optimize the printing process, using detailed simulations to prevent build failures. The conversation includes real-world examples of how this technology is applied in various scenarios, enhancing the predictability and success rate of complex metal prints.

  • PanOptimization is developing software to predict metal additive manufacturing success and address complex geometries.
  • The software uses actual export data from pre-print software to analyze and optimize prints before they are physically executed.
  • The PanOptimization software can potentially save significant costs and time by reducing the need for physical trial and error in metal printing.
