Predict the thermomechanical response of additive parts during the metal powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition manufacturing processes.
New for 2019, cloud-based multi-scale process simulation for metal powder bed processes is available to Netfabb Premium, Ultimate and Netfabb Simulation subscribers. This service uses cloud credits (US site).
Metal powder bed fusion
Use multi-scale modelling to predict the thermal and mechanical response of parts and help reduce build failures.
Netfabb Simulation correctly indicates the delamination of the part from the support on a component manufactured at the Penn State CIMP3D Additive Manufacturing centre. *Figure courtesy of Dr Ed Demeter.
Validating moving-source model predictions show Netfabb Simulation is able to accurately calculate temperature and distortion measured during the powder bed fusion process. The final calculated distortion is within 5% error of the measurement.
