How to Cost and Quote Additively Manufactured Polymer Parts
On-Demand Link3D AMES Webinar #4
Hosted by: Janet Kar, CMO of Link3D
Special guest: Vishal Singh, CTO of Link3D
How long does it take you to quote or cost 3D printed polymer parts? After working with over 243 OEMs and Service Bureaus, we’ve found that it takes on average 30 to 120 minutes to prepare cost sheets or quotations for simple to comprehensive forms of AM technologies: FDM, SLA, DLP, CLIP/DLS and MJF.
Link3D has worked with OEMs and Service Bureaus to help them save up to $90,000/year on quoting by developing a systematic method to ensure cost models are always up-to-date, account for multiple build strategies based on each part’s unique full stream manufacturing activities and overhead costs that should be accounted for.
In this 30-min webinar + 15-min Q&A, explore:
» How to build cost models for FDM, SLA, DLS, MJF machines
» How Link3D's Build Simulations can forecast build time and cost
» How Link3D’s Build Simulation can forecast material usage and cost
» How to account for machine overhead costs automatically
» How to account for post-processing costs automatically
» How to implement centralized quoting modules across all employees
