Siemens to revolutionize product development with end-to-end additive manufacturing solution

Skriv ut

World’s first offering to integrate entire additive manufacturing process from automated performance-driven design optimization to advanced 3D printing.

Generative design, enabled by Convergent Modeling and topology optimization, yields organic shaped parts optimized for performance and 3D printing
Smart product models to be used from design through simulation and production with no need for data conversion
Ability to “reshape everything” could significantly reduce costs, increase product performance, dramatically impacting products in many industries
Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) business announces a new comprehensive solution to unleash the full potential of the burgeoning additive manufacturing revolution. The new solution, which will begin rolling out in January, 2017, is comprised of integrated design, simulation, digital manufacturing, data and process management software. The new set of offerings will help companies fully leverage the benefits of the latest additive manufacturing technology, also known as 3D printing. The integrated solution will use smart product models through all phases without the need for conversion or translation between applications or processes. The solution will enable automated generative design using the new topology optimization capabilities which often result in organic shapes that would be difficult for a human designer to envision, and impractical or impossible to produce with traditional manufacturing techniques. This technology, combined with Siemens’ new advanced additive manufacturing software, could enable companies to reshape everything for optimal performance at a reduced cost. In addition, the ability to 3D print an optimized part shape could reduce the number of parts in an assembly, thereby decreasing weight and increasing strength. As a result, industries such as automotive, aerospace and medical devices could realize dramatic value.
