3DSIM Announces Beta Program for New Product Suite

November 5, 2015

3DSIM, a software company providing products and services initially focused on the simulation of Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes, is accepting pre-orders for its Beta exaSIM Support Optimization Tool. This tool is the first release in a suite of products that will move the additive manufacturing industry from trial-and-error innovation to simulation-driven innovation.

The Beta exaSIM Support Optimization Tool is designed to be the first of several exaSIM-branded tools. exaSIM tools are designed for machine users – people responsible for choosing machine settings, part orientations, support strategies, etc. – to help ensure a part is built successfully. Future exaSIM tools will include features such as: 1) the ability to predict part distortion and compensate a CAD file before a part is built so the part distorts to the correct geometry after removal from supports; 2) the ability to compensate for machine to machine variation so the same part can be built on multiple platforms, but with the same outcomes; 3) the ability to change process parameters to account for differences between powder lots; 4) virtual product visualizations (surface roughness, porosity, warping, etc.); and more.

This first Beta program will focus exclusively on Support Optimization. By becoming a 3DSIM Beta participant, you will be among the first to hear about future capabilities and have the opportunity to adopt them as they become available.
