New Authentise and Autodesk Workflow

We’re excited to work with Authentise to create a seamless workflow experience for additive users. Whether in R&D, prototyping or production, current operations are spending significant time on manual operations. Just like us, Authentise is focused on eliminating that waste so that engineers and operators can focus on application development and other creative tasks.

Thermo-Mechanical Modeling of Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing processes are revolutionizing production throughout the industry. These technologies enable the cost-effective manufacture of small lot parts, rapid repair of damaged components, and construction of previously impossible-to-produce geometries. However, the large thermal gradients inherent in these processes incur large residual stresses and mechanical distortion, which can push the finished component out of engineering tolerance.

Netfabb Simulation Research & Validation: Distortion Compensation

Trial and error is especially costly in metal additive manufacturing. With so many variables across materials, machines, and part designs, it is almost impossible to know the formula for success.

Thermomechanical simulation, especially Netfabb’s multi-scale approach, provides a big advantage. Since 2012, over $7.3M USD has been spent validating the Netfabb Simulation solver predictions by comparing them with the experimental results for materials,
