How are Additive Manufacturing technologies influencing production of the future?

  1. Additive Manufacturing technologies are playing a pivotal role in shaping the production of the future. Additive Manufacturing, also referred to as 3D printing, builds parts layer by layer, producing parts quickly and cost effectively. This process offers a greater level of design flexibility, enabling the production of parts with complex geometries that would be difficult, if not impossible to achieve using conventional techniques.
  2. The Additive Manufacturing process can offer a number of advantages over traditional manufacturing methods, including:
    • Reduced lead times
    • Lower costs
    • The ability to produce parts of greater complexity
    • Enhanced process sustainability by reducing waste through the reuse of materials.
  3. The use of Additive Manufacturing technologies is revolutionizing the way industrial products are manufactured. Companies across aerospace, automotive, energy generation and consumer products are able to produce lighter, stronger and more efficient parts with incredible precision.

Design for Additive Manufacturing

Design for Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing technologies have unlocked the ability to build almost any geometry. As part complexity increases, so does the requirement to Design for Additive Manufacturing to ensure sustainable production. Oqton’s Industrial Additive Manufacturing solutions enables:

  • Access to dedicated toolsets, including implicit modeling, to easily create the most complex geometries.
  • Design decisions to be made based on manufacturing process constraints to ensure consistently successful builds.
  • Creation of lightweight, manufacturable structures, to address challenges across industries such as aerospace, automotive and energy.
  • Optimization for stiffness, heat transfer and boundary conditions.


One of the greatest challenges for a successful build process is being able to prepare a part that results in a stable and consistent build. Reduce costly iterations on the journey to your first article and streamline your production with tools built by engineers, for engineers:

  • Dedicated build preparation tools to optimize the printing process.
  • Parametric geometry creation, including support structures, for complete control over parts of any complexity.
  • AI-driven tools to capture and automate gathered expert knowledge.


Detect and prevent costly build failures by simulating mechanical stresses and thermal conditions inside the build chamber, and address issues during the build preparation.

  • Predict displacements and deviation from desired dimensions and pre-compensate your parts to print right the first time.
  • In the rare cases where further iterations are required, use 3D scan data of your as-built part as input to adjust geometry automatically.


Manage and optimize your AM workflows. Minimize costly machine down-time by configuring your production environment across machines, materials, and production routes for complete visibility using:

  • Digital Catalog and Customer Portal
  • Order Management / MES
  • Planning and Scheduling
  • Material Management
  • Monitoring and IoT
  • Integration with ERP
  • Real-time machine sensor data monitoring
  • Configurable dashboards for data visualization
  • Automated anomaly detection and alerts
Repeatable Manufacturing

Repeatable Manufacturing

  • Enable repeatable manufacturing in highly regulated markets.
  • Capture part specifications, testing requirements and the complete manufacturing workflow in a Digital Product Definition.
  • Ensure consistent quality across multiple printers, materials and locations through enhanced real time monitoring capabilities.

All Customer Stories

After switching to 3DXpert, we could take on more projects and put more engineering time into them because we have more time available. We’ve achieved a 20% efficiency increase across the board, and this is most noticeable on larger parts or bigger quantities within a build.

David Buschemeyer
Additive Engineer, ADDMAN

3DXpert streamlined our process and workflow greatly. We eliminated a ton of in-and-out of software operations, which has helped us reach our goals of maintaining top data integrity and eliminating redundancy from our workflow. Beyond that, the support we have gotten from the 3DXpert team is simply first-class.

Tom Gabriel
