This session looks at how Function-Generative Design can be used for additive manufacturing using Dassault Systèmes' full portfolio of integrated applications for additive manufacturing that works seamlessly across design, manufacturing, and in-service performance.
Dassault Systèmes® offers a full portfolio of integrated applications for additive manufacturing that works seamlessly across design, manufacturing, and in-service performance.
The Function Driven Generative Design application unifies modeling, simulation, and optimization in a single environment. The Powder Bed Fabrication application enables preparation, programming, and validation of the additive manufacturing process for powder bed 3D printers. 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.
Within the 3DEXPERIENCE 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. Finally, the shape compensation capabilities allow for CAD-based compensation, ensuring that part tolerances are achieved in the first build iteration.
