MSC Software has collaborated with a number of industrial partners and developed a framework and suite of tools to address the design challenges and process optimisation in additive manufacturing. Its objective is to provide a clear definition of the important elements of simulation and synthesis in product creation, preferred sequence/flow, clear identification of data models/results and seamless integration of tools to control the process. The usage of all stored data also guides emerging R&D and future method development.
The paper is primarily intended for two type of readers.
Engineering and CAE managers who are involved in managing various phases of design and analytical activities through the application of advanced CAE tools and technologies.
CAE/design/manufacturing process engineers who are involved in the day-to-day product lifecycle activities (design/development/CAE/prototype build and test) and interested to improve the end quality of parts/assemblies via application of advanced simulation techniques.
