Youngstown, OH – July 13, 2015 – America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, announced awardees of its Project Call #3 for additive manufacturing (AM) applied research and development projects today. Senvol, along with Georgia Institute of Technology, Siemens Corporate Technology, Lockheed Martin, MSC, GKN Aerospace, The University of Texas at Austin, The University of Texas at Arlington, Woodward, Siemens Energy, and Siemens PLM, was awarded one of the grants for the project “A Design Guidance System for AM.”
The project aims to address several gaps and deficiencies in the manufacturing design to print workflow with a design guidance system for AM. The project will focus on many of the gaps in the existing AM design to print workflow, enable the insertion of the decision tools and certification and validation of parts workflow categories, and provide a near seamless software ecosystem to eliminate the discontinuity in switching between multiple software tools by the passing of generic payload file formats, working towards the complete and ideal workflow.
Senvol President Annie Wang remarked, “We’re very excited to work with such an esteemed group of partners to develop a tool that will really advance the adoption of additive manufacturing. Designing for additive manufacturing remains one of the major challenges in the industry, and we’re pleased to be able to contribute towards addressing this need.”
