​Case study:
Prediction of excessive deformations and critical stress concentrations.​

Challenge:

Simulate the AM process of a seatmast topper (courtesy S. Wright) and determine critical deformations and part-support interface regions that are critical to failure.


 

Solution:

Create a mechanical, macro-layer based simulation, visualize and assess deformations and the stress results.
