Simulate Metal Additive Manufacturing. Iterate between multiple manufacturing scenarios fast. Build for success.

Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) at an industrial level is a fairly new challenge for many companies. Particularly in the early phases of adapting AM technology, companies spend several weeks with trial and error tests to optimize build configurations. This is inefficient and a waste of time and money. The software AdditiveLab helps to cut back the trial and error tests by providing simulation technology that can predict outcomes of metal-deposition AM processes. With AdditiveLab failure-prone regions can be identified efficiently and manufacturing configurations optimized to increase the manufacturing success, and subsequently, save time and money.

Simple usage.

AdditiveLab was particularly developed to address the engineering needs of AM engineers without requiring simulation knowledge. AdditiveLab's 3D printing simulation solution provides a very simple user-interface and automated model preparation processes, reducing the state-of-the-art simulation to only a few clicks.

More insight.

AdditiveLab allows users to investigate, understand and learn more about their Metal AM manufacturing processes. The visual feedback of simulation results in AdditiveLab allows to quickly identify critical regions - regions that suffer from large deformations, localized stress concentrations and excessive temperatures.
