Additive manufacturing eliminates design limitations imposed by conventional production methods. This makes it possible to produce complex parts – but it also creates the need for new approaches to design. Software programs developed for this purpose help to exploit the possibilities of additive manufacturing. They use simulation tools to identify the critical points in the production process. This topic shows you how to get the most out of design and simulation for additive manufacturing.
