Desktop Metal announces significant updates to Live Sinter—a multiphysics sinter simulation software application that automates the generation of sinter-ready, printable geometries, as well as supports, setters and inserts, to make repeatable, volume production of high-precision end-use metal parts through binder jetting more accessible, according to the company.

Live Sinter’s multiphysics simulation and compensation software delivers sinter-ready, printable geometries that maintain tight shape and dimensional tolerances. After scan-based adjustments, Live Sinter enables correcting for complex distortion effects.

“Within the field of sinter-based additive manufacturing, Live Sinter stands alone for its ease of use and functionality,” says Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “No other solution offered today combines our powerful, rapid multiphysics simulation with scan-based adjustments and automated support and setter generation.”

A Key to Metal Printing Success

Live Sinter is a companion to Desktop Metal’s portfolio of metal binder jetting systems, which produce parts that must be sintered in a furnace to fuse the particles into a high-density material.

Desktop Metal offers a broad portfolio of metal binder jetting systems, including the Shop System, X-Series and Production System P-1 and P-50. Several of these systems include Desktop Metal’s furnace, which simplifies and reduces costs associated with the sintering process across a range of geometries and materials for businesses new to binder jetting. The company’s printers support processing 30 metals across volume production, specific customer applications or research and development. Learn more here. 

The Shop System is a metal binder jet printer, and Live Sinter has been a component of that turnkey printer’s ease of use and success. To learn more about Live Sinter, click here.
