In Laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing (LPBF-AM) technology, the biggest concern amongst all is that residual stresses are prone to fracture support structures, leading to further exaggerated part distortion. Intelligent support structure design can add benefits such as heat sink, ease of removal, better surface finish, along with basic function of fixtures and datums. Process simulation plays an important role in predicting distortion, structural integrity and residual stresses in the build. XFEM can be applied to simulate the crack initiation and propagation.
