Additive Manufacturing brings many benefits to product development. But let’s be honest; it’s often not the fastest way to produce parts. While an injection molding setup can push hundreds of plastic widgets out the door in an hour, it’s not unusual for a single 3D print part to take all night.
So it makes sense to make the most of your print job by carefully and efficiently arranging multiple parts on a tray before you walk away. That’s why, with Creo 4.0, we’ve provided several tools to help you optimize your tray assembly, so you make the most of every run.
