Blade Crash – ppt animation

May 22, 2017


Blade Crash Prediction with 3DSIM exaSIM™ software. Predicting distortion during the build process can help identify potential blade crashes. 3DSIM™ software produces a vtk file which is then used to visualize predicted crash locations 3DSIM™ software produces a csv file

Porosity – ppt animation

May 22, 2017


At 3DSIM, we use single bead experiments (on both powder and solid) and porosity experiments to calibrate and validate our simulations. Watch the video to learn more.


Microstructure – ppt animation

May 22, 2017


3DSIM™ Microstructure Solver Strategy To predict location-specific microstructural details, we are creating a database of microstructures based upon: Thermal gradient Solidification rate Meltpool size and shape Meltpool velocity Including: Grain size Orientation Primary and secondary dendritic structures Initial dislocation density

3DSIM™ Dynamic Virtual Sensor Temperature Output Watch the animation above featuring laser scanning of a 5mm X 5mm pad. View the visualization of the meltpool length and meltpool width.


Renishaw Cantilever Part Calibration – ppt animation

May 22, 2017


Renishaw Cantilever Part Calibration – Experimental Setup 3DSIM™ was given a distortion after removal from the plate measurements for Block 1 and Block 3. We were asked to do a blind prediction of Block 2 distortion when using 67° rotation

Thermal History – ppt animation

May 22, 2017


Detailed thermal and phase history is computed everywhere in the build. This video features the animation of 3DSIM™ Thermal Solver State Map.


NAVAIR Case Study -ppt animation

May 22, 2017


NAVAIR Case Study evaluates orientation Watch the video to see how 3DSIM helps users select the optimal part orientation. Typical part orientation considerations include: Can I build a part to conform to the drawing? Are distortions in the part occurring

U of L Case Study – ppt animation

May 22, 2017


Case Study: P3 Corner Fitting Initially the user did not have access to simulation software. The user needed four iterations to get the support structure sufficient to anchor the part to the baseplate. These four iterations wasted hundreds of hours
