PowerMill Additive is a plugin that enables you to create toolpaths for additive or hybrid manufacturing, that is driven by directed energy deposition.
It utilizes PowerMill’s existing multi-axis CNC and robot capabilities to create multi-axis additive toolpaths with detailed process parameter control along every point of the toolpath.
Direct Energy Deposition or DED is a common method for additive metal manufacturing.
DMS is known for 5 Axis gantry routers, however they also offer a range of Hybrid/DED Metal Additive CNC machines
