Autodesk Netfabb Local Simulation 2-Year Multi-user Subscription Renewal
is a non-linear finite element thermo-mechanical solver for additive manufacturing (AM) processes.
With the graphical user interface, Autodesk
Simulation Utility for Netfabb, users can easily set up, execute, and examine analysis results. Advanced
users may prefer the command-line interface to access advanced or beta features of Local Simulation.
Netfabb Local Simulation
can be used to perform predictive modeling of the AM build process to help guide the design and manufacture of AM parts.
Simulation can model AM processes directly using traditional moving source thermo-mechanical methods, or rapidly model large and complex geometries
using a unique accurate and fast multi-scale methodology. These models result in histories of temperature, distortion, and stress fields, which
coupled with warnings for support structure failure or recoater blade interference, may be used to improve manufacturability for a variety of AM
