Thermal History – ppt animation

May 22, 2017


Detailed thermal and phase history is computed everywhere in the build. This video features the animation of 3DSIMâ„¢ 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

Mold wall solidification orientation 80 90

November 17, 2016


Assuming melt pool is a straight wall microcasting the grains are growing from the walls towards centerline. The exact tear drop grain shape will be accommodated later with changing curvatures as we move forward.


Nuclei oriented at different angles

November 12, 2016


Nuclei oriented at different angles. Concentration equation was solved alongwith phenomenological velocity equation incorporated to get a final grain microstructure. Periodic Boundary Condition +/-y and +/-x. The corners +/-xy will be also taken care in our next demonstrations.
