Additive Manufacturing Processes that Do Not Require Support Structures

Support structures are common requirements for additively manufactured parts to provide a foundation for overhanging features to be deposited. However, some powder bed processes do not require supports. In this 15-minute lesson originally prepared for the 2021 ASME AM Tech Forum, Director of Engineering Greg Paulsen discusses why some AM processes do not require supports and what that can mean for your 3D printed designs, costs, and production output. Greg will focus on two core technologies: HP Multi Jet Fusion and selective laser sintering.

You can also download Xometry's HP Multi Jet Fusion Design Guide and Selective Laser Sintering Design Guide.
