Live Sinter

Rather than fight the effects of gravity, friction, shrinkage and distortion, Live Sinter software embraces nature and provides advanced simulation tools to predict and correct for errors when sintering 3D printed parts from Desktop Metal binder jetting systems. Rather than printing a part straight to have it warp out of spec, Live Sinter prints an oppositely warped part that will sinter to meet dimensional tolerances. Live Sinter enables unique distortion compensation to help manufacturers not only reduce costs, but enable sintering to be successfully applied to a wider range of applications.

Using a unique, multi-physics engine, the software is capable of simulating the complex forces and deformation parts experience during sintering, and in just minutes generates “negative offset” geometry which, when sintered, results in straight, defect-free parts out of the furnace.
