Presentation Summary

While Additive Manufacturing (AM) has opened up possibilities for product design that were not even contemplated before, the industry still struggles with unknowns: part distortions, residual stress, and microstructure defects. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides a digital thread from design to simulation to production. Within this framework, engineers can perform detailed thermo mechanical analyses to predict complex physics, such as microstructure, as-built material properties, and buckling. A faster eigenstrain-based simulation method is also available to obtain distortions for part compensation iterations. These simulation tools were awarded first place in residual stress prediction by the recent NIST AM Benchmark, and have been validated for a range of process types and materials.
