ANSYS Additive Prep
ANSYS Additive Prep is built into ANSYS SpaceClaim and tightly integrated into the additive workflow. Users can easily investigate different build orientations with respect to support requirements, build time and predicted distortion tendency.
It optimizes part orientation, auto-detects support regions and individually configures regions to create different support types. In seconds, Additive Prep can generate a complex set of support geometries. The created set can be exported for simulation to identify failure modes and determine the expected distortions and stresses, without utilizing machine time and print materials.
Additive Prep capabilities:
- Creates build volume
- Orients part
- Creates support regions
- Generates supports
- Exports geometry for simulation
