Form finding and process simulation for additively manufactured components

Implement additive manufacturing economically – an overview of the component simulation possibilities

On Demand


Additive manufacturing processes open up new opportunities as well as presenting new challenges. Numerical simulation is often used as a supporting tool. The synergies that the physics-driven component design exhibits through topology optimization with the free design options of additive manufacturing are well known. In addition to optimal form finding specifically adapted for additive manufacturing, the virtual representation of the product’s manufacturing process is also essential. This is the only way to predict the thermal stresses created by the high local heat input during the melting process and thus to determine the resulting component warpage in advance and avoid misprints. This webinar will provide an overview of how to tackle these tasks with ANSYS Mechanical Additive Process Simulation, ANSYS Additive Print and ANSYS Topology Optimization.
