About the Webinar

Love them or loathe them, supports are literally the foundation of most LPBF builds. Getting this part of the process right is critical to success. Unfortunately, it seems that recipes for good supports are often learnt the hard way and may not be formally documented. This is the definition of art vs science. The webinar will attempt to shed light on the science of supports, by exploring many practical examples of both success and failure.

This OnDemand webinar will take approximately 1 hour to complete.

Topics covered include:

  • (Why) do we need supports?
  • The interaction between orientation and supports, with industry examples
  • A deeper dive into support strategies for medical devices
  • Developing the Goldilocks recipe for supports effectively
  • Support removal, advances in technology
  • Neglected parameters
