How Fortify and MultiMechanics Are Making Additive Manufacturing More Predictable

How Fortify and MultiMechanics Are Making Additive Manufacturing More Predictable

With additive manufacturing, or “3D printing,” being one of the most talked-about technology breakthroughs in the last decade, its benefits are widely known by individuals in and out of the manufacturing industry. Compared to traditional manufacturing methods, 3D printing is faster, more cost-effective, creates less waste, and drastically increases an engineer’s design space by allowing for basically unlimited shapes and geometries. 

However, there are still many challenges that need to be solved before this technology replaces traditional manufacturing methods. These include improving strength, reducing manufacturing variability, and predicting part performance. This is where MultiMechanics and Fortify come in… 

The combination of MultiMech’s predictive multiscale simulation and Fortify’s novel additive manufacturing technology will facilitate the adoption of 3D printing for commercial and industrial applications. In this joint webinar, you will learn more about MultiMechanics’ and Fortify’s technology and collaboration through an example engineering problem that will highlight:
 
  • Modeling techniques and failure modes for chopped fiber composites
  • Model-experiment validations of Fortify’s additive manufacturing material parts
  • How multiscale modeling can improve and optimize Fortify’s parts
