GENOA 3DP Simulation is an additive manufacturing design tool and software suite that simulates the 3D printing process to accurately predict the deflection, residual stress, damage initiation, and crack growth formation associated with as-built AM parts. Advanced Multi-Scale Progressive Failure Analysis methods are used to replicate the entire 3D printing process from the level of Material Characterization to Advanced Structural Analysis in order to determine voids, delamination, manufacturing anomalies, and other irregularities and inefficiencies from micro to macro scales. More significantly, GENOA 3DP Simulation provides the end user with an ability to import an STL file/G-Code; generate a structural mesh, run analysis and optimize the build in order to reduce weight, reduce scrap rate, improve performance and meet specification.
