3DSIM LLC, a provider of additive manufacturing (AM) simulation software, has launched its exaSIM beta software. The cloud-based AM simulation tool provides metal laser sintering users insight into residual stress and distortion predictions.
Under the exaSIM beta program, customers may select software subscriptions ranging from a basic feature product to an enterprise-level, customizable package. During the beta program, additional physics and optimization capabilities will be added to the solvers to increase their accuracy. As a cloud-based product, exaSIM enhancements will be immediately available to beta customers, the company states.
“We’re using advanced computational solvers to predict residual stress and distortion in a layer-by-layer fashion,” says Brent Stucker, chief executive officer and a co-founder of 3DSIM LLC. “exaSIM Beta offers two operational modes for predicting distortion and residual stress. A third mode will be introduced during the course of the program. All modes can be used to generate supports, conduct trend analysis, and ultimately, reduce the likelihood of build failures.”
