Key facts and use cases of Ansys Additive Suite

Lattice structures

Optimized lattice structure with varying density. Just as the internal bone density is adapted to the load, additive manufacturing makes it possible to achieve locally varying densities with an optimized lattice structure.

Material development

Simulation supports research with material parameters. Determination of the optimal energy density in material development. The time needed to select material parameters is reduced.

Component distortion

Determine and compensate for manufacturing-related distortion. The Additive Suite makes it possible to determine manufacturing-related component distortion and generate a compensated geometry to thus improve dimensional accuracy.
