Computer Aided Technologies for Additive Manufacturing

Circular economy

CAxMan aim at using less material by offering new shape design methods for efficient design of voids and cavities. CAxMan also address the design of better and leaner support structures (use of less material) based analysis addressing thermal stresses and distortions during the additive process.


Co-evolution of products-processes-production systems

CAxMan address workflows along the products-processes-production pipeline

Material efficiency
Kanban

We will generate Objects closer to their nominal shape and thus less material will be removed by subtractive processes.

  • Innovative re-use of equipment
    Allow for more efficient design and process planning for additive manufacturing thus shortening the time to productions and facilitating distributed additive production.

Waste minimisation
Kanban

We will generate Objects closer to their nominal shape and thus less material will be removed by subtractive processes.

  • Reduction of waste (in %)
    We will generate Objects closer to their nominal shape and thus less material will be removed by subtractive processes.
