Ansys 2022 R2 expands toolsets for Additive Manufacturing Users, streamlining your workflows between design, simulation, and manufacturing. Every Ansys Mechanical User can now identify and minimize the risk for build errors and ensure high-quality parts through process simulation for Metal Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), Directed Energy Deposition (DED), and Metal Binder Jet (MBJ).
- Workflow Improvements
- Automatic Distortion Compensation is the ability to optimize a distortion compensated model within a simple automated workflow, which improves first-time print success.
- Accuracy Enhancements
- Consolidating additive technologies
include Laser Power Bed Fusion (LPBF) scan pattern effects in Workbench
Additive. With the consolidation of additive technologies, all users can
rapidly increase simulation fidelity, capturing localized strain variations in
each deposition layer.
- Introducing a Machine Learning (ML)
model for predicting thermal strain can result in 10X time savings. Users can
now easily explore the benefits of varying process setup parameters such as
power, speed, and scan vector.
