Details –


This webinar will illustrate how simulation tools can be used to address the main challenges associated with Additive Manufacturing, such as dimensional accuracy and the reliability of the mechanical properties of the final part. A holistic simulation approach is proposed to tackle material engineering, process simulation and as-manufactured structural analysis of polymer and composite parts made via FFF/FDM or SLS method. The multiscale material modeling techniques – which are essential to handle the several scales involved in additive manufacturing – such as implemented in Digimat-AM, will be presented and discussed. Thanks to the micro-mechanics approach, the effect of the material and the printing process parameters such as, printing direction or toolpath, on the warpage prediction and the as-printed part performance will be illustrated.


By integrating virtual engineering into their workflow, engineers will be able to minimize printing trial and errors because it enables the user to explore the process sensitivity to manufacturing parameters.
