Hybrid Additive Manufacturing for a Rotary Part

 

Overview

Hybrid Additive Manufacturing combines an additive metal deposition process with the traditional CNC machining subtractive process to produce highly complex prototypes and finished parts using a single machine tool setup. This tutorial illustrates the Hybrid Additive method on a rotary part.

Created with NX CAM 10.0.2

 

Details

The additive process begins with a machine capable of laser deposition. The part is created by fusing material that originates in the form of a powder, layering the material in a series of steps that eventually form a 3D component. The subtractive process involves removing material using traditional CNC machining methods. Both processes can be used during programming.

 

 

Note: Additive Manufacturing requires the purchase of an additional license.
