Making the Case for Simulation of Additive Manufacturing
September 1, 2018
The cost of running an additive manufacturing metal 3D printer, on average, is estimated to be around $100 per hour, and a single build can take upwards of 20 hours—or closer to 80 hours for highly complex parts. That's $2,000 to $8,000 wasted every...
