Ansys Additive Suite

The most powerful simulation solution for metal additive manufacturing

Ansys Additive Suite delivers the critical insights required into the develop and analysis of an AM product to avoid build failure and create parts that accurately conform to design specifications. This comprehensive solution spans the entire AM workflow, from design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) through validation, print design, process simulation and exploration of materials.

Ansys Additive Suite is available as an add-on to the Ansys Mechanical Enterprise license. Therefore, it combines the native features and capabilities offers within Ansys Mechanical like structural, thermal, acoustic and other effects analysis, the built in Topology Optimization to find optimum geometry shapes that efficiently meet objectives and Ansys SpaceClaim Direct Modeler with its toolsets for reverse engineering faceted/scanned data, and editing or optimizing STL files for additive manufacturing and 3D printing along with specific tools related to AM. It means the access to the Ansys Workbench environment streamlining the setup and resolution of AM simulations, while offering maximum flexibility according to the required needs.

  • Support to Design for AM (DfAM) utilizing topology optimization and lattice structures
  • Conduct design validation
  • Improve build setup, with additional design features for part manufacturing
  • Simulate print process
  • Explore and gain greater understanding of materials and optimal machine parameters
  • Ensure high quality and certifiable parts
  • Provides full-user access to process settings for customization
  • Efficient HPC performance scaling with Ansys HPC products

The Structural Design of Roller Coasters

An integrated CAD-CAE procedure

Engineers will normally need to evaluate a number of different designs, only one of which will result in the final construction configuration. This is why numerical simulation plays an indispensible role in roller coaster design.

A new heart valve replacement procedure modeled with multiphysics simulation could eliminate the need for open-heart surgery

24% operative mortality rate of open-heart surgery for older patients drives search for less-invasive aortic valve replacement technique

Since this cannot be accurately measured in an implanted stent, manufacturers decided to use Multiphysics to simulate the process to better understand the method and to calculate the forces operating on the implant in order to improve the stent design and the surgical procedure, as described in this article.
