ANSYS Advantage - Volume XII, Issue 3, 2018
Spotlight on Additive manufacturing
Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, has captured the imagination of the international business world because it can reduce production costs and material wastes while improving customer satisfaction. And, through a digital process, products can be delivered quickly. However, companies face the challenges of adopting new workflows, accommodating unfamiliar production parameters, and eliminating production errors and waste. This issue of ANSYS Advantage reveals how organizations can overcome these challenges using simulation.
