Siemens introduces AM process simulation solution to improve 3D printing accuracy

A new Additive Manufacturing (AM) Process Simulation solution for predicting distortion during 3D printing was announced by Siemens (Frankfurt, Germany). The product is fully integrated into the company’s end-to-end Additive Manufacturingsolution, which assists manufacturers in designing and printing useful parts at scale.

Building on Siemens’ comprehensive digital innovation platform and the Simcenter portfolio, the AM Process Simulation solution uses a digital twin to simulate the build process before printing, anticipating distortion within the printing process and automatically generating the corrected geometry to compensate for these distortions. This simulation is paramount for constructing a “first-time-right” print and necessary for achieving the efficiencies required of a fully industrialized additive manufacturing process.
