MSC Simulation Software Designed to Predict 3D Printing Problems

Published by , May 2, 2017 12:49 pm

(Engineering) 3D printing is quickly transforming from a method for prototyping and making tooling into a technology for manufacturing end parts. AM systems can be difficult to control or predict, particularly when making a part the first time around.
One answer to these problems and more may be the use of simulation software, both for its use in characterizing the printing process itself and for predicting the performance of the part once it comes out of the printer. One of the few simulation software programs is from MSC Software, which has developed Digimat Additive Manufacturing (Digimat-AM) and Simufact Additive software for polymers and metals, respectively.
