Modelling and Simulation(M&S) techniques of 3D Printing & AM

M&S is the use of a physical or logical representation of a given system to generate data and help determine decisions or make predictions about the system. Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D Printing (3DP) for exacting applications still face a technical challenge. The expansion of 3DP  has created a need for simulation and data management tools. Numerous 3D techniques that have been developed to manufacture complex-shaped components along with more precision that will help to optimize the 3DP process in order to reduce production costs, improve performance & increase robustness/reliability by optimizing design i.e. it all requires is systematic modeling and simulation especially at the time of designing.

  • Simulation modeling
  • Process simulation 
  • Computational methods
  • Lightweight additively manufactured structures;
  • Integration of modeling with process design
  • Methods to control & minimize defects. 
  • Analyzing variation of properties, such as orientation, volume and print direction
