What's New

Ansys 2022 R1 continues to expand toolsets for Additive Manufacturing Users, streamlining your workflows between design, simulation, and manufacturing.  In addition, every Ansys Mechanical User can now identify and minimize risk for build errors and ensure high-quality parts through process simulation for metal Powder Bed Fusion (PBF), Directed Energy Deposition (DED), and Metal Binder Jet.

  • Streamline your workflows with Directed Energy Deposition (DED) – introducing DED process simulation to the Ansys Additive Portfolio, providing capabilities from predicting macro-level temperature distortions and stresses to prevent build failures and provide trend data for improving designs for additive manufacturing including part orientation and part build order.
  • Continued improvements for Power Bed Fusion (PBF) process simulation– double the strain generation speed for Scan Pattern simulations, paired with an expanding material library.
  • Workflow speed improvements – fully threaded solver support, multi-platform additive wizard support, MAPDL solver enhancements, and now providing a seamless transfer from Ansys Additive Products to Workbench and Mechanical.
