SIMULATION FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
Digital Thread for Additive Manufacturing
Dassault Systèmes offers a full portfolio of integrated applications for additive manufacturing that connect across multiple disciplines-design, manufacturing and simulation. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a rich set of applications identified within these key themes: 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace, ln-Silico Material Engineering, Function-driven Generatie Design, Process Design & Production Plan, and Global Production System.
Our virtual printing solution delivers the following key capabilities:
- Accurate, validated and reliable solutions
- Inherent strain and full thermal-mechanical solutions
- Micro-structure predictions, as-built material properties, and residual stresses
- Failure predictions, process induced (crack initiation and growth) or machine induced (recoater collisions)
- Post-processing effects: build plate removal and heat treatment
- In-service assessment and fatigue life predictions of manufactured parts
The digital thread provided by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform ensures the connection between these powerful and intuitive applications, and is key to producing functional parts using additive manufacturing methods.
The most seamless way to get your parts made and collaborate with leading digital manufacturers worldwide.
