Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) enables engineers to create parts that are not possible with traditional manufacturing techniques. As we watch AM progress from technology hype, one thing becomes very clear: software will be integral to the success of the technology. Simulation tools that allow AM engineers to build parts "first time right" are very much a prerequisite for the future of AM. Some of the greatest challenges in building metal parts with AM includes: distortion, residual stresses, and part quality. Engineers are able to simulate the entire Metal AM process with Simufact Additive including: build, heat treat, baseplate cutting & support removal process, and HIP.

By replacing expensive physical trial & error processes with a holistic simulation approach, users can determine the optimal process flow much faster and at a dramatically lower cost.
Simufact Additive is a powerful simulation environment for getting "first time right" optimization of powder bed additive manufacturing processes for metals.
