AddiMap and Autodesk to integrate PBF-LB parameter marketplace into Fusion 360

March 28, 2023

AddiMap, a digital platform for trading AM process parameters and material data, and Autodesk, San Rafael, California, USA, have announced they will partner to integrate a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) parameter marketplace into the Fusion 360 CAD software.

The aim will be to purchase and import individual process parameter sets for the prepared AM parts in Fusion 360 directly from the AddiMap marketplace. This allows additive manufacturers to make use of optimised parameter sets for the individual machine and material combinations.

“AddiMap finally addresses the aspect of value creation and parameter development for metal AM,” stated Alexander Oster, Director Additive Manufacturing at Autodesk. “By accessing AddiMap’s parameter library directly in Fusion 360, millions of mainstream users will be able to go from digital model to physical product without having to spend years to become a specialist in the field.”

The AddiMap Marketplace was developed to reduce the inefficiencies in AM part production which would take place through the use of suboptimal and mostly generic process parameters. All users have the possibility to find the best parameters for leveraging Additive Manufacturing’s full potential by making use of new materials or experiencing higher productivity with materials known to the customer.
