On-Demand Webinars: Manufacturing & Prototyping

Simulation of Thermal Stress in 3D Printing

If you want to learn about designing for additive manufacturing (3D printing) with apps, then tune into this webinar with guest speaker Borja Lazaro Toralles of the Manufacturing Technology Centre.

Additive manufacturing has achieved great popularity through the use of polymers in prototyping. From there, it has moved on to the use of metal alloys in the manufacturing of production components, where geometric distortion can occur when the heat source melts too far into the deposited layers and generates new thermal stresses. Residual stresses can warp the final geometry, which may have an adverse impact in applications with tight tolerance requirements in high-value manufacturing.

In this webinar, we will show how to use numerical simulation to investigate this phenomenon with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. This includes how to create a customized app that readily allows different teams to perform analyses. Following a live demonstration in the software, you can ask questions during the Q&A session.
