A Case Study in Additive Manufacturing: Optimizing Geometry-Specific Process Parameters for SLM Builds

In this webinar, guest speakers from The Welding Institute (TWI) and the Ansys Granta team present a software-based application for optimizing process parameters for selective laser melting (SLM) builds.

The “holy grail” of metal additive manufacturing (AM) is producing reliable, high-performance parts with minimal post-processing required. This demands geometry-specific process parameters that enable a near-uniform thermal history throughout the build.

Through the collaborative PASSPORT project, TWI and Ansys have explored a software solution for selecting process parameters for AlSi10Mg SLM parts, based on metallurgical characterization results.
