Using Additive Manufacturing for CFD Analysis

Radius Systems, who develop and manufacture innovative plastic pipeline solutions for the gas industry, are benefitting from integrating Formlabs SLA 3D printers for in-house CFD analysis, with substantial time and cost savings:

  • 93% cost saving

  • 97% lead time reduction

Since integrating a Formlabs Form 2 3D printer, Radius have been able to print different iterations of the same component and test them on their in-house flow rig. This allows for immediate design changes and re-testing, at a faster turnaround (hours compared to weeks) and with the ability to run multiple live data test scenarios in-house, rather than theoretical simulations.
