ESI Additive Manufacturing 2019.0 18 Jan 2019 To the selected users only

Updated on 4 Mar 2019

Installation Guide Update: The following environment variable must be defined on every machine where the solver will run : FORT_BUFFERED = TRUE. This is applicable to both Windows and Linux. Without this environment variable, solver performances are not optimized and computation times are longer.

ESI Additive Manufacturing : a unique solution for the simulation of Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing process.

This multi-scale and multi-physics tool offers first two modules:

  • Prescan (quick estimation of optimized parameter sets): Find best estimated parameter sets (laser power, laser speed, lasing strategy, etc.) maximizing material deposition rate and material density through quick optimization algorithms (parameter ranges scanning).
  • Distortion (Macro scale modeling): Part-scale simulation of the manufacturing process by a layer-by-layer activation approach. This module simulates distortions and residual stresses in the workpiece at any time during production. The analysis of a manufacturability criterion (maximum distortion in build direction) gives a manufacturability assessment, representative of the feasibility of the part as defined by the user considering its support strategy and orientation.

ESI Additive Manufacturing 2019.0 is composed of the following applications:

 

  • Visual-Environment 14.5
  • AM Core 2019.0: Including Distortion and Prescan modules
  • Prescan Optimizer: Pam-Opt 2018.1
  • Distortion Mesher: VisCART from ACE+Suite 2018.5
  • Distortion Solver: Sysweld 2018.0

See the Release Notes for details about this release. Please liaise with local support for more information.

NB: For advanced use of AM process simulation (melt pool simulation, powder spreading simulation, thermal history analysis, geometry compensation, etc.), prototype modules can be made available upon request, under specific commercial agreements.
