Simulate the Entire Metal AM Process to Ensure a “First Time Right” Printed Part

The metal additive manufacturing has the potential to revolutionize manufacturing in multiple industries by making it possible to create parts otherwise impossible with traditional manufacturing techniques. This technological advance however is not without a multitude of challenges. One challenge frequently encountered in powder bed fusion (PBF) type additive manufacturing is the distortion and residual stresses imparted ...

Deliver Faster Results with FEM Using MSC Apex

The finite element method (FEM) is increasingly used for structural calculations. For the most part, FEM is used to calculate structural deformation, stress, fatigue life, vibration, or temperature. The manufacturing of a product may be simulated within MSC Apex, and one can calculate the acoustics, crash behavior, and many other disciplines.  The FEM model answers ...
