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.
