Modeling and Calibration of Additive Layer Manufacturing Processes (ALM)

Dynardo and ArianeGroup developed an automated workflow using ANSYS Mechanical and optiSLang to simulate the additive manufacturing process.

To qualify the production process with simulation, engineers must verify quality by leveraging simulation to predict temperature, stress and strain evolution during the printing process. ANSYS optiSLang allows the team to automate the process and calibrate the model to optimize manufacturing process parameters at a fraction of the cost of the current hardware trial-and-error method.
