Companies use CADS Additive for efficient data preparation and data management in the metallic additive manufacturing. Here are the 6 most common uses for our cloud-based software solutions.

FREELANCERS,
CONTRACTORS, AND INTERNS

CADS Additive in the cloud makes it easy and safe to work with externals

Today more and more businesses than ever cooperate with freelancers, contractors, and interns to support projects and access unique skills or know-how for the short term. Though, this is challenging for many industries – also for additive manufacturing – since external employees introduce security issues as well as onboarding costs.
CADS Additive-as-a-Service makes it safe and easy to onboard external employees to your 3D printing projects. You can quickly “spin up” a virtual machine where the freelancer, contractor or intern can collaborate on your projects. You retain complete control over access and company IP.

How Additive Manufacturing Software Editor For Metal Parts - SLM and PBF Save On Hardware Invest

SAVE
HARDWARE INVEST

CADS Additive provides you with the latest, high-end workstations – in the cloud

Additive manufacturing software, especially for Powder Bed Fusion, needs powerful machines to run on. Many companies have already high invests in 3D printer and AM software solutions. To carry out additive manufacturing projects appropriate, also suitable computers are crucial. Besides all other expenses, companies would have to spend further thousands of Euro for computers.
CADS Additive-as-a-Service helps you to save these amounts. We provide you with powerful, high-end virtual machines with the latest graphic cards combined with the world’s most user-friendly software for metallic additive manufacturing. You don’t have to invest in expensive hardware. Your employees just need a laptop and access to the internet. Data preparation is now possible anytime and anywhere you like.

CASUAL AND
PART TIME USERS

CADS Additive provides you with different options for different users and user needs

Companies in the fields of mechanical engineering, aerospace, energy, or medical technology have different kinds of users who use additive manufacturing software in a varying degree. Applications range from part time usage for minor reworking of 3D models or final adjustments for printing up to complete preparing of components to be printed – from creating a build job through assigning and modifying support structures to finally releasing for print. This means all these users – no matter if “casual”, “part-time”, or “heavy” users – need powerful, high-end machines. Even if they rarely use them.
CADS Additive-as-a-Service allows you to provide powerful, high-end virtual machines on a sliding scale subscription model. Hence, casual users can also use this high-end machine, but get access for only a fewer number of hours per month and therefore pay less. Whereat, heavy users on the other hand get full time access.

How Additive Manufacturing Software Editor For Metal Parts - SLM and PBF Ideal For Training

TRAINING
AND EDUCATION

CADS Additive revolutionises metallic additive manufacturing training and education

Training courses for 3D metal printing software have traditionally required students or course attendees to physically attend classroom education centres to learn the technology. This can be expensive because attendees must travel to a central location to learn, while the education provider must frequently purchase and update expensive workstations with the latest technology.
With CADS Additive-as-a-Service education providers and students can utilise virtual machines that offer best in class graphic cards regardless of their location. Whether students log in to learn remotely or at your premises, they have access to the most powerful machines to support their training and coursework for the most powerful 3D metal printing software.
