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.

What is DED?

Direct Energy Deposition or DED is a common method for additive metal manufacturing.
