Topology Optimization & Simulation for Additive Manufacturing in ANSYS 2019 R3

Presented by

Doug Oatis, Simulation Support & Application Engineer, PADT, Inc.

About this talk

ANSYS offers a complete simulation workflow for additive manufacturing (AM) that allows you to transition your R&D efforts for metal additive manufacturing into a successful manufacturing operation. This best-in-class solution for additive manufacturing enables simulation at every step in your AM process. It will help you optimize material configurations and machine and parts setup before you begin to print. As a result, you’ll greatly reduce — and potentially eliminate — the physical process of trial-and- error testing. Through the use of ANSYS tools such as Additive Prep, Print, and Science, paired with topology optimization capabilities in ANSYS Mechanical Workbench, the need for physical process of trial-and-error testing has been greatly reduced. Join PADT's Simulation Support and Application Engineer Doug Oatis for an exploration of the ANSYS tools that help to optimize additive manufacturing, and what new capabilities are available for them when upgrading to ANSYS 2019 R3. This presentation includes updates regarding: - Level-set based topology optimization - The export of build files directly to AM machines - Switching between viewing STL supports, mesh, or element densities - Multiple support being made in a single simulation (volume-less & solid supports) - And much more
