3D printing is evolving from a rapid prototyping tool into a robust manufacturing methodology. This transition adds structural performance to the ‘fit and finish’ requirements of rapid prototyping, and this great advancement in additive manufacturing is made possible with simulation. CATI is combining our simulation skills and additive manufacturing experience with the latest software tools to provide valuable analysis from the earliest stages of design, through the AM process itself, and into the field. When topology optimization is coupled with additive manufacturing, what was once impossible for traditional manufacturing methods becomes readily achievable. Follow the link to watch an OnDemand webinar and see how SIMULIA was used for process and performance simulation of extrusion-type additive manufacturing. The age of AM is going to be an exciting time for design, simulation software, and process engineers!
Now available on demand, this webinar is a great showcase of our partnership with Purdue University’s Composites Manufacturing & Simulation Center (CMSC) and the work of Dr. R. Byron Pipes Executive Director of CMSC and the John L Bray Distinguished Professor of Engineering.
