SIMULATION FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Digital Thread for Additive Manufacturing

Dassault Systèmes offers a full portfolio of integrated applications to unlock the true power of additive manufacturing by connecting across multiple disciplines, including design, manufacturing and simulation. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a rich set of applications identified within these key themes:

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.

Virtual Printing

Our virtual printing solution delivers the following key capabilities:

  • Accurate, validated and reliable solutions
  • Inherent strain and full thermal-mechanical solutions using either an approximate or detailed laser path
  • 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
