Thermomechanical simulation, especially Netfabb’s multi-scale approach, provides a big advantage.
Simulation technologies are only in their infancy, and with the emergence of virtual reality and digital processing, simulation will likely drive its way to the forefront of virtually every engineering discipline.
How hardware access, ease of use and user adoption affect upfront use of simulation.
Progress in 3D printing and additive manufacturing opens the door to greater applications of design-oriented tools.
Researchers and musicians alike are turning to FEA and CFD to help with instrument design.
Thermomechanical simulation, especially Netfabb’s multi-scale approach, provides a big advantage. Since 2012, over $7.3M USD has been spent validating the Netfabb Local Simulation solver predictions by comparing them with the experimental results for materials, print parameters and design cases/geometries to help customers save time and money minimizing failures with metal additive manufacturing.
Generative design is not a magical solution to every design problem you will ever encounter. In its current, adolescent form, generative design is like every other design tool out there: to get the most out of it, you have to know the right way to use it.
With a more detailed understanding of shrinkage behavior, and with assistance from simulation software, mold engineers can address shrinkage earlier in the design process, save time, and improve part quality.
The mind of a mold builder never ceases to amaze me. Their creativity, ingenuity, and intelligence make them impeccable problem solvers, which is why I thought you might be interested in getting inside the mind of a fellow problem solver to learn how he came up with a very popular simulation software.
Identifying warpage is one of the easiest aspects of injection molding. Understanding the cause is a little more complicated. Here’s a close look at the sources of warpage and how to prevent it.
All mold engineers know, shrinkage is an unfortunate fact of life. All plastics shrink as they cool from viscous liquids to solids, and every type of plastic shrinks in a slightly different way. And while eliminating shrinkage is impossible, minimizing it is essential for molding parts accurately.
Bicycle component manufacturer, SRAM, used additive manufacturing and generative design in Autodesk Fusion 360 to create a new type of bicycle crankarm.
