NX with EOS 3D Printer

Valued Contributor
Valued Contributor

Hello,

 

is anyone using NX in connection with an EOS machine?

Starting with NX12 it should be possible to use NX to position the stl files without using an additional software.

https://www.eos.info/press/2016/eos-to-integrate-eosprint-software-into-siemens-nx

 

I am interested in how the workflow actually is.

 

Would be nice to get some informations if anyone has one :-)

 

Thanks!

 

Best regards,

Thomas

Hi @TomK76 

 

What kind of EOS machine do you have?

 

this intergration is in combination with the NX AM license and EOS print.

What the tool is doing is create a direct link to the machine without using a materialise build plate processor.

 

So in NX you can prepare your print job with supports. it shows the settings that are available in EOS Print.

Also its possible to preview the slices in NX of the print job.

 

Is this some needed information or doe you need more?

Hi @ruud_vandenbrand 

 

thank´s a lot for your informations!!

We have a Formiga P110, but as far as I know, this model is not supported. But we are planning to get a new one.

 

What I would like to know is, how this works in combination with Teamcenter or is this intended to work only native?

In my opinion quite a few things work different with or without Teamcenter.

 

Best regards,

Thomas

if i check the supported printers the one that you are mentioned is in the supported machines.

I don't know if this is also supported in the NX EOS direct intergration.

 

When using the NX AM features you will get for the build plate a .prt file (this contains the placing of the parts and support generations) so that can be safed inside of teamcenter.

Thanks Ruud!

Ok, I did not know that. We were told that it does not work, but we will find out I guess.

Do you know if this requires adaption of the TC datamodel? (ItemType, dataset, etc.)

 

Best regards,

The intergration is only for the metal printers (M290 M400 M400-4)
