Simcenter 3D for Additive Manufacturing.
Printing it right the first time
Industrialize additive manufacturing with designs that meet the capabilities and potential of this revolutionary new manufacturing technology. Predicting defects before printing reduces costs and improves overall product quality.
Understanding distortion and how the printing process contributes to the final geometry leads to better designs. Anticipate layer shrinkage in cooling and its effects and generate compensated geometry (BREP) based on the simulated distortion fields. Simulate selective laser melting (SLM) and the build process for powder bed fusion metal prints.
