What's New

Ansys 2023 R2 release of Additive Manufacturing tools packs a punch with three powerful new features that revolutionize additive manufacturing workflows.

LPBF Setup Wizard

New Wizard simplifies workflows with graphic displays, automatic result item additions, and support for multiple parts/supports and meshing options. Users will be excited about the wizard's ability to pre-populate AM Process Object settings and automatically set up contacts and AM Bond, making the creation of reliable additive manufacturing simulations more accessible.

Distortion Compensation

This feature now includes a single compensation add-on to complement the iterative optimization add-on. The update streamlines compensating for distortions in AM processes, saving time and effort. The ability to translate the part to the base in distortion compensation also enables effective Sintering compensation, making it easier to produce accurate and reliable parts.

AM Creep Properties

Mechanical now includes creep properties for all eight additive materials in engineering data. The update streamlines heat-treatment simulations with creep effects and provides a better residual stress reduction for AM heat treatment. This enhances accuracy and reliability in heat-treatment simulations for AM processes.

Additive Simulation 101 – Back to Basics

Imagine 3D printing a part and hearing ‘oops’ from your operator or engineer.  What’s the first thing that goes through your mind?...How much is this going to cost us?  Whether you’re producing parts out of plastic, resin, or metal, the cost fluctuates, especially with metal additive printing.
