3DSIM is advancing AM through simulation by providing a comprehensive suite of metal AM simulation tools for production and research organizations.  3DSIM users are experiencing major reductions of failed builds and trial-and-error iterations through the use of rapid predictions and easy-to-use products. 3DSIM’s industry-leading solutions go beyond the inherent strain used by others to include a full-physics-based thermal solver to provide deeper insight and solutions for your challenges.


  • exaSIM™
    exaSIM™ Beta is an Additive Manufacturing (AM) simulation tool that provides rapid insight into residual stress, distortion predictions, and informed support generation; reducing trial and error iterations and accelerating production....

  • exaSIM™ utilizes advanced solvers to predict residual stress and distortion during metal AM production. A user supplied STL file or build file is automatically meshed and used to predict stress and strain evolution. Maximum stress components are stored and used for support generation. Users can download distortion and stress predictions along with a suggested support structure.

    exaSIM™ offers three operational modes: 1) Uniform Assumed Strain, 2) Scan Pattern Dependent Strain, and 3) Thermal Strain. Uniform Assumed Strain provides the fastest approximation using an isotropic strain assumption. Scan Pattern Dependent Strain offers a higher fidelity solution by considering local scan pattern based anisotropy.  Those who need a more informed answer can perform a thermal strain analysis to consider the complete thermal history, scan vector-by-scan vector and layer-by-layer. All exaSIM products are available in a secure Cloud environment. GovCloud is available for ITAR-sensitive industries.

MMI: Take this opportunity to tell us how you support the use of additive manufacturing in medicine.
3DSIM provides predictive simulation tools that help medical professionals understand how their metal AM designs will react to the AM process before physically building the part; drastically improving the probability of first pass success, which is critical in time sensitive implant situations. Users can also improve efficiency in developing new materials and improving manufacturing of AM components through simulation. Confidence rises with knowledge and 3DSIM provides that necessary insight!
