Introducing Simufact Additive

On occasion of the formnext, Simufact will launch Simufact Additive, a powerful and scalable process simulation environment for ‘right first time’ optimization of laser powder bed fusion processes.

Features include simulation of all the key AM process steps starting with ‘printing’ of the part; followed by heat treatment, cutting the part off the build plate and removal of support structures, plus heat and pressure combined processes (HIP). The initial release of Simufact Additive will predict the final distortion and residual stresses of metal 3D printed parts; future functional enhancements will introduce additional features.


Integration of simulation software and 3D printing machines

Collaboration with Renishaw

Simufact is building partnerships with 3D printing machine suppliers aiming at an integrated approach which combines AM simulation software with vendor-specific 3D printers / resp. their build preparation software.

Renishaw plc, a leading manufacturer of advanced metal AM systems, is the first 3D printing machine vendor to collaborate with Simufact in the common goal of an integrated approach. The aim is a fully simulation based optimization leading to the best quality build file.

Initially, Renishaw’s QuantAM build preparation software will be coupled with Simufact process simulation software and enable data exchange, using QuantAM’s open API (application programming interface). The next step is to automatically set-up a simulation based on the build information and in return to display the simulation results in Renishaw’s QuantAM build preparation software.

The first results of the Simufact-Renishaw collaboration will be published and showcased at the Formnext 2016.
