Additive Manufacturing And 3D CAD

The use of additive manufacturing and 3D CAD has modernized the way manufacturers design and build mechanical components. Additionally, direct metal laser melting (DMLM) and selective laser sintering (SLS, or metal 3D printing) are quickly becoming the standard for customizable constructs that are system critical and are hard-to-fabricate. This article discusses the process of transforming a 3D CAD model into a mechanical component, as well as how to use a camera based beam profiling system to assist in achieving consistently accurate constructs.
