Calculate Additive Manufacturing cost for your part
The Additive Manufacturing Cost Calculator is based on a model developed by AMPOWER over the recent years. To feed the model, relevant part data is entered in the dashboard, such as material, dimensions and part volume.
The cost of metal Additive Manufacturing parts is further influenced by the complexity of the part, which is represented by a complexity value. Complex part geometries are, for example, cavities or lattice structures. Process steps that are dependend on the complexity, such as depowdering, will hence have higher cost for higher complexity of a part.
Besides part features, the quantity of parts to be produced is entered. Although Additive Manufacturing is in general beneficial for low quantities, the cost of a single part is significantly dependent on how well the full build volume is utilized.
Additional option fields allow you to further modify the behaviour of the Additive Manufacturing Cost Calculator. Depending on your desired outcome, production steps from the pre and post processing are included or excluded in the assessment.
