AlphaStar at RAPID + TCT

AlphaStar's Genoa 3DP software suite, an AM design tool and software suite, uses multi-scale progressive failure analysis to simulate the AM process for polymers, metals and ceramics. The micromechanical solution allows users to virtually qualify each step of the AM process from material characterization to build optimization to in-service loading. The newest features include PathCoverage and TMg, which provide virtual quality assessment of the printer path, while visualizing problematic bald spots of a printed part. It also predicts thermal history, material states and dynamic evolution of melt pool and heat-affected zones, while identifying stable and unstable zones during printing.
