Ansys: Additive Manufacturing Simulation

Additive Manufacturing Simulation

ANSYS offers a complete simulation workflow for Additive Manufacturing (AM) that allows you to transition your R&D efforts for metal AM into a successful manufacturing operation.
Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is a technology that produces three-dimensional parts layer by layer from a variety of materials. It has been rapidly gaining popularity as a true manufacturing process in recent years.
ANSYS’ best-in-class solution for additive manufacturing enables simulation at every step in your AM process. It will help you optimize material configurations and machine and parts setup before you begin to print.
As a result, you’ll greatly reduce — and potentially eliminate — the physical process of trial-and- error testing.
Additive Workflow

ANSYS AM simulation tools will help you:
  • Design for AM (DfAM) utilizing topology optimization and lattice structures
  • Conduct design validation
  • Improve build setup — with additional design features for part manufacturing, including part orientation and automatic generation of physics-based support structures
  • Simulate print process
  • Explore and gain greater understanding of materials
The ANSYS solution is especially designed for these users:
  • Aerospace OEMs and suppliers
  • Metal AM print services bureaus
  • Biotech companies with AM efforts
  • Automotive OEMs and suppliers
  • AM materials R&D companies
  • Metal AM machine manufacturers
