Below you will find answers to the most common questions we are asked about CASTOR - the manufacturers’ gateway for 3D printing. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.
1. What types of files does CASTOR support and are files uploaded as an assembly?
We want to help manufacturers save time and money by unlocking the benefits of industrial 3D printing.
Using a set of geometric and economic analyses CASTOR's software automatically identifies the parts that make sense to consider 3D printing, technically and economically. With the new CO2 Emission Calculator, CASTOR can now also automatically identify parts' designs with environmental benefits to be produced using AM, and calculate the potential emissions savings.
The calculation behind the CO2 analysis takes into account various parameters along the full lifecycle of the product.
How sustainable is AM today?
"A quick and easy tool or software program to predict the difference between an AM part and a conventional one with a high degree of certainty is essential. Such a tool could boost the application of AM in areas where it is currently considered too expensive..."
