Finding the right 3D printing material is critical to the success of a project and now Additively says the process has just become easier with their Material Finder, “an easy-to-use tool to search a database of more than 250 3D printing materials by various characteristics, mechanical and physical properties and many other criteria.”
The application answers a variety of needs and includes details to help users select the proper material for a given application. Which 3D printed plastics are sterilizable? What’s the tensile strength of 3D printed titanium? The Material Finder includes specifics about various material choices to answer those questions.
The company also offers the Additively Application, a service which allows engineers to have a single point of access to 3D printing. It gives them access to a network of more than 300 professional 3D printing suppliers and offers all technologies for metals and plastics and more than 250 materials.
As engineers today struggle to find the right material to fulfill their requirements, they must face the limitations of the available technologies, and Additively says their services addresses these problems. The applications allow engineers to post specific projects and then collect price quotes from any of the 250 service providers who can meet the specific goals and requirements.
Prof. Dr. Gideon Levy is the scientific adviser to Additively.
“Engineers often wonder if 3D printing could be an option for certain parts,” Levy says. “But there is a lot of effort required for this evaluation, e.g. for selecting the right technology, identifying potential service providers and collecting quotations. Many promising applications are not even evaluated. With Additively.com, it’s a question of minutes to check if 3D Printing is a valid option.”
The new service, Material Finder, has just launched and is ready to be put to use.
Additively, a spin-off of ETH Zürich, one of Europe’s major engineering universities, fields a team of researchers and developers well versed in the opportunities additive manufacturing and professional 3D printing provide.
Matthias Baldinger, the CEO and co-founder of Additively, is the strategic thinker, consultant and industry specialist behind the company. Working alongside CTO and co-founder Fabian Rahm, Baldinger says Rahm oversees all development activities.
“With the Material Finder, we strongly improve the application and enable engineers to use the full potential of our network” says Rahm. “With the tool, they can easily identify suitable materials offered by the suppliers in the network and then directly collect quotations for their parts.”
The Additively Application with the integrated Material Finder is free, and users can access the full array of selections available within the tool by registering for a free user account here.
You can discuss this latest offering, Material Finder, at the Additively forum thread on 3DPB.com. Below is a video introducing the Additively Application.
