3-D Printing: Additive Works Joins the Altair Partner Alliance



Amphyon consists of several modules that support the pre-processing steps and enhance the process itself.

The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) has announced the addition of Additive Works' Amphyon to its software offering. Amphyon is a simulation-driven process software for powder bed-based laser beam melting additive manufacturing (AM) processes. It allows for automatic optimization of part orientation as well as a build-up process simulation and the adaption of process parameters to achieve a higher part quality and more process stability.

"Amphyon's innovative approach to 3-D printing simulation provides an efficient and practical solution to benefit a wide range of industrial users involved with designing and printing complex metallic parts," said Subir Roy, Senior Director of Industry Solutions at Altair. "The GPU based software with its intuitive GUI enables the user to do trade-off studies for part orientation as a function of accessibility, support volume, build time etc. Distortion calculations from simulation can be used to compensate the part geometry to minimize deviation from the design target."

"Amphyon saves money, time and energy in the development of additively manufactured components," said a company spokesperson. By integrating fast numerical process analysis and simulation into the process chain, surface quality and shape accuracy can be increased without the need for further action by the user. Amphyon consists of several modules that support the pre-processing steps and enhance the process. There are three major applications Amphyon and its modules focus on: helping designers learn how to deal with AM and its issues; helping researchers study process physics by numerical simulation; and helping production optimize pre-processing and build data in a few steps.

"Amphyon was designed to replace the experiment driven development of build-up strategies in laser beam melting with simulations and geometry analyses," said Dr. rer. Nat. Nils Keller, Co-Founder and CEO at Additive Works. "Due to the numerically calculated knowledge about process-induced thermal and mechanical loads, the build-up process can already be optimized on the level of pre-processing. This will save HyperWorks users a lot of resources and additionally enhance the part quality as well as the level of automation."

As a simulation-based process software for AM, Amphyon can be used to calculate the optimal orientation of a part to additively manufacture it. Also, the build-up process can be simulated in order to calculate stresses and part deformation and generate a predeformed STL file.
