Siemens Introduces Process Simulation Solution for Improved 3D Printing Accuracy

November 30, 2018

Additive Manufacturing Process Simulation solultionSiemens announced a new additive manufacturing (AM) Process Simulation solution for predicting distortion during 3D printing. When metal parts are 3D printed and the layers build up, residual heat from fusing the layers can cause parts to warp inside the printer, causing various problems, from structural issues within the part itself to print stoppage. Simulation of the printing process can help alleviate many of these problems.The AM Process Simulation solution uses a digital twin to simulate the build process prior to printing, anticipating distortion within the printing process and automatically generating the corrected geometry to compensate for these distortions.
