Cambridge, UK. Engineers and scientists can now effectively manage and leverage materials information for additive manufacturing (AM) thanks to a new partnership between ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) and Granta Design.
Accurate, reliable, and traceable materials information is crucial for additive manufacturing. The combination of ANSYS’ powerful simulation for metal powder bed AM with Granta’s existing GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for ANSYS Workbench offers an integrated set of workflows for AM data capture, simulation and optimization. That enables users to directly access and use validated materials data stored in their GRANTA MI corporate materials database, while working in ANSYS Workbench. Users can quickly apply accurate, traceable input data, saving time and increasing confidence in simulation results. The companies are also working to connect ANSYS Additive Print to GRANTA MI.
“ANSYS is known for the accuracy and robustness of our simulation tools. By partnering with Granta, the experts in materials information management, we are helping to assure that ANSYS AM solutions will not only become more efficient, but more accurate and reliable over the years to come,” said Brent Stucker, director of additive manufacturing, ANSYS.
“Our collaboration with ANSYS will help organizations working towards AM parts get it right the first time,” said David Cebon, managing director and co-founder, Granta Design. “By integrating physical and virtual methods and data relating to AM, we can help to dramatically reduce the time and number of builds required to produce parts with the required properties.”
