Materialise and Simufact Introduce Simulation for Metal AM Workflow
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171115005622/en/
Today, conducting simulations to predict the AM process requires expert knowledge because of its process complexity. The combination of Simufact’s simulation expertise with Materialise’s full process AM expertise results in a straightforward workflow for Magics users who want to apply simulation within their process.
“Quality control is currently one of the most important challenges to
meet the demanding requirements of our customers. Our Inspector software
already provides control during and after the build process and now
Magics users will be able to predict errors before production. We are
very confident that the combination of our well-established Magics
software with proven simulation technology from a market leader like
Simufact will offer competitive simulation-driven solutions to the AM
Simufact Additive is a powerful and scalable software tool for the simulation of metal-based AM processes. Systematic use of process simulation drastically reduces the number of prototypes to be built in the development phase, while improving the quality and lifetime of the products. This directly minimizes the time-to-market and development costs. Implementing simulation within Materialise Magics will allow R&D departments, universities and designers to seamlessly shift from a heuristic approach to a scientific, validated approach.
“Support structure generation is a standard process in the AM build
preparation workflow, and Magics software is a market-leading tool for
this purpose. When it comes to optimizing the build process based on
simulation results, the support structure plays a significant role in
achieving first-time-right print results. Our customers will benefit
from Materialise’s leading representation of support structures
integrated in Simufact Additive, further strengthening our simulation
process chain,” says Dr.
