Download VTT Pipe case study CAD-files
A mock-up SLM test component was designed at VTT for assessment of printability and geometric accuracy both before and after machining. Design principles and objectives included for example features suitable for SLM, e.g. self-supporting elliptic cross-section for horizontal pipe, ribs and local details to modify overhanging members to be self-supporting.
VTT would like to offer this pipe case study to others who would like to use it for experimental work or AM process simulation validation in order to encourage knowledge sharing and an open approach to research in this field.
