February 28, 2018: solidThinking Inspire in the Development of Desktop Metal Parts


Designing for Additive Manufacturing with Inspire

Advancements in desktop metal printing technology and simulation-driven design technology have drastically changed the way we approach design and manufacturing. As the additive manufacturing market continues to mature, simulation has become more of a focal point, driving the entire design process from the early concept design phase all the way to production.

Join evangelists from solidThinking and AdvancedTek as they explore these enhancements through the use of solidThinking Inspire simulation driven-design technology and Desktop Metal Studio System.
