Simufact Additive is a powerful simulation environment for "right the first time" optimization of powder bed additive manufacturing processes (SLS, SLM,LBM, DMLS , EBM)
Simufact Additive predicts the distortion and residual stresses in the part and guides the production engineer in how to compensate to ensure a quality part the first time. Process control variables may be selected to optimize the 3-D printing process to reduce time and waste.
Simufact Additive can be used to explore the process space, including examining the influence of:
- Material selection
- Power vs. speed
- Powder characteristics
- Build path / hatching pattern
- Support / Internal structures
Simufact Additive simulates the total process including:
- Powder Bed printing
- Heat Treatment
- Detaching Part
- Removal of support structure
Simufact Additive uses efficient computational methods to predict:
- Residual Stresses
- Optimal location of part
- Support Structure
Simufact Additive allows you to build the part right the first time.
