Simulation Driven Product Development & Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, has the potential to radically change the way products are conceived and designed. The additive process allows for unprecedented design complexity and design freedoms. Full subassemblies can be produced in one print, eliminating costly joining operations. Parts can be customized and produced in small, made-to-order batches, when and wherever needed — at home, in the workplace, on the assembly line, even on the battlefield. For additive manufacturing to become ubiquitous, and its promise fully realized, current design and simulation tools must also radically evolve.
