Back to top Simulation has become widespread for some 3D printing processes like SLM. This article will give you an overview of when you might want to use this valuable tool. Strain analysis result for aerospace bracket. Source: César Terrazas / All3DP Simulation enables one to predict or estimate how a material will behave under a specific set of constraints or conditions. In engineering and science, this is a necessary tool either to investigate and gain a deeper insight of the physics of a given process or to evaluate the functionality of a component before committing to its manufacture or production. Simulation has been employed in engineering processes like construction, manufacturing (such as metal injection molding and casting), and robotics. Simulation can be performed using various methods or formulations, of which finite element analysis (FEA) is the most widespread. In 3D printing, the situation is no different. Even after […]
