Headquartered in Irvine, California – AlphaSTAR Corporation is an engineering software company that provides innovative physics-based simulation technologies. As a simulation solution provider, our tools are used to address real-life scenarios in the aerospace, automotive, defense, energy and discrete manufacturing industries, worldwide. Over 30+ years of developing cutting edge tools, has given us the ability to lend a hand to companies by improving product quality, reducing manufacturing cost and accelerating time to market. AlphaSTAR is the recipient of esteemed industry and technology awards for R&D and software development and is a proud women-owned business.
AlphaSTAR’s family of tools include GENOA 3DP, an additive manufacturing simulation toolset aimed at accurately predicting the manufacturing anomalies associated with as-built AM parts. Advanced multi-scale progressive failure simulation methods are used to replicate the 3D printing process from material modeling/characterization to structural and thermal simulation in order to determine irregularities from micro to macro scale. GENOA 3DP enables users to optimize build processes to reduce weight, scrap rate and improve overall part performance to meet design specifications.
