Metal-based additive manufacturing simulation: Simufact presents latest developments in Simufact Additive at this year’s 3D Print in Lyon

Hamburg, Germany, May 16, 2018 – At this year’s 3D Print in Lyon, France, Simufact Engineering provides insights into upcoming functionality in Simufact Additive, Simufact´s software solution for simulating metal additive manufacturing processes.

Simufact Additive is a powerful and scalable process simulation environment for ‘right first time’ optimization of laser powder bed fusion processes. The software helps to compensate the distortion, minimize residual stresses and optimize the process parameters. 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).

New to the market are Simufact Additive´s thermo-mechanical calculation method, which allows having a clearer overview of the effects of thermal energy by providing insights for the global temperature of the component, and the capability to determine base plate influences on the component.

At 3D Print in Lyon, users can gain first insights into next release highlights, such as

  • Orientation assistant to determine the best build orientation
  • Automated distortion compensation
  • Identification of manufacturing issues
  • Particle tracking to create history plots and advanced path plots
