Fuse, visualize and explore your metal AM process data in 3D

AM Explorer is a visualization software package that makes it possible to fuse, explore and analyze simulation, monitoring and post build part analysis data from the metal additive manufacturing process. 

AM Explorer - Designed for metal AM

AM Explorer is a visualization software package designed specifically for users working with layer-based metal additive manufacturing. 
 
AM Explorer makes it possible to fuse, explore and analyze simulation, monitoring and post build part analysis data collected in the manufacturing process. 
The goal for AM Explorer is to make it easier for users to explore and understand process data and thereby reduce manufacturing costs, improve quality and accelerate the application development.
 

Transform monitoring data to insights 

AM Explorer is data and vendor agnostic and can import a large variety of industry standard formats.

Eg. CAD Files, simulation data, powder bed images, optical tomography, melt pool, system sensor data, CT scans, metrology data etc. 

AM Explorer can aggregate and fuse data in different formats and types in the same visual environment, both in 2D and 3D. 

With help of an powerful but intuitive UI you can explore the data and gain new insights. 

Understand your AM process and save resources
