Structural Optimization & Additive Improvements in Ansys 2020 R2

Presented by

Doug Oatis, Lead Mechanical Engineer, PADT, Inc.

About this talk

With advancements in manufacturing often comes new tools to help drive optimization of said advancements. One of the best examples of this pairing is Ansys simulation and additive manufacturing. Ansys Additive helps to optimize design for 3D printing, determine any potential stresses or distortions, and predict the microstructure of the part based on thermal history during fabrication. Simulation eliminates trial and error and gives you confidence that the part will be successfully built the first time with sound structural properties. It also plays a key role in verifying optimized design, with the inclusion of topology optimization. This provides the ability to specify where supports and loads are located on a volume of material, letting the software find the perfect shape. With 2020 R2, Ansys provided a series of key updates to these two tools, spanning a variety of areas including: - Optimization Setup - Parameter-free morphing - Modifying STL's - UI Improvements - And much more Join PADT's Lead Mechanical Engineer Doug Oatis for a deep dive into what you can expect with these new updates and how they can benefit both your additive and simulation workflows.
