ANSYS has the most comprehensive solutions for additive manufacturing on the market today. This includes generative design, topology optimization and design validation as well as preparing for a successful build by enabling orientation and support selection combined with simulation of the actual build process. This process simulation can predict multiple modes of failure and deformation as well as residual stresses before and after heat treatment. Users can also look at the order of post processing steps and predict the characteristics of the resulting materials. ANSYS also has tools to handle geometry requirements around additive manufacturing, including unique clean-up and preparation tools to streamline the process of getting models ready for print.  


  • ANSYS Additive Prep
    ANSYS Additive Prep has fast & intuitive tools to guide part orientation with respect to distortion tendency, build time & the amount of support required. Support generation is quick & powerful with control over support type & the ability to edit....

  • ANSYS Additive Prep enables users to take parts and easily determine which orientations would work best for additive manufacturing. The heat maps generated show distortion tendency, build time and the amount of supports required. The heat maps can be adjusted to trade off these parameters depending on the needs of the users. Support generation is lightning fast and includes various forms which can be adjusted using easy to understand controls.
