Multi-scale material modeling for additive manufacturing

While additive manufacturing of reinforced polymers is appealing and increasingly considered for production of actual parts, major obstacles must be overcome by engineers. Dimensional accuracy of the part must obey to strict tolerances that may not be met due to thermally induced part distortion or poor surface roughness. On the material side, an anisotropic material behavior is brought in by the specific 3D printed layered architecture and oriented reinforcements. This process-induced material behavior make the part mechanical response challenging to predict.

Therefore, Digimat, the material modeling platform, can offer you a solution to overcome your challenges.

The Rise of Additive Manufacturing

When early manufacturing giants realized that their mass production techniques would not be effective if they wished to maintain their competitive edge, they started to research new manufacturing methods. One of the most remarkable outcomes of these efforts was rapid prototyping. In the past, production had always been a way to convert or shape a ...
