  • The Speed Myth: Perceptions vs. Reality
  • FDM Technology Who is Stratasys? + Inkjet Technology
  • Today’s Event Host Kim Killoran Stratasys, Inc. Presenter Todd Grimm T. A. Grimm & Associates, Inc.
  • The Speed Myth Time ≠ constant • Perceptions: misleading • Speed: relative • Variables: many
  • The Speed Myth Time ≠ constant • Perceptions: misleading • Speed: relative • Variables: many Goal = efficiency Will cover • Time for process • Time (hands on) • Time variables • Time’s effect • Time buckets
  • Total Process Time
  • Total Process Time
  • Total Process Time File prep • Orient, support, slice •Machine prep • Load, warm up •Build •Wait • Drain, cool, harden •Post • Clean, cure, remove, sand
  • Automation Manual vs. automated • Resource demands • Resource availability
  • Automation Manual vs. automated • Resource demands • Resource availability Resource = you?
  • Build Time Time varies • Presets • Options Presets vary with: • Orientation • Volume • Surface area • Footprint
  • Build Time Options • Build style • Layers, resolution • Fill style, hatching • Batching • As needed • Consolidated • Orientation • For quality • As a solution
  • 0.00 10.00 20.00 30.00 40.00 50.00 Hours Consolidated Builds Individual Builds Build Time
  • Build Time Options • Build style • Layers, resolution • Fill style, hatching • Batching • As needed • Consolidated • Orientation • For quality • As a solution
  • Time’s Effect on Time Speed varies with age • Some stable over time • Others degrade Examples • Lasers and light sources • Material degradation
  • Time Buckets Rapid response to emergency • Good but not normal Standard operating modes • As needed • Consolidated Common operating periods • 4-hour cycles • 8-hour cycles • 24-hour cycles

  • The Speed Myth •Many variables; few generalizations •Speed is relative • No matter the speed, still faster than conventional •Know importance and influencers •Remember: speed is just one criteria “There's never seems to be enough time to do it right the first time, but there's always enough time to go back and do it again.”
