From designing one-off bespoke products to constructing components that would be impossible with traditional subtractive methods, additive manufacturing (AM) is providing value in numerous industrial applications. Scaling up AM processes however can be challenging, with repeatability and build quality issues being a major roadblock to adoption.
Dassault Systèmes offers an end-to-end solution for additive manufacturing on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. This whitepaper will focus on the role of simulation in that flow, and show how structural analysis can accurately predict residual strains in 3D printed parts. The solution demonstrated in this paper is experimentally verified and won first prize in the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) “Macro-scale Process-to-Structure Predictions” challenge.
