German company Additive Works has spent a great deal of time perfecting its Amphyon software, a simulation tool for powder bed-based, laser beam melting 3D printing that allows users to run through the additive manufacturing process before doing it for real. The simulation enables users to see and address any problems that may arise, making it possible to achieve a perfect part on the first try. At formnext, which is taking place in Frankfurt from November 13th to 16th, Additive Works will be presenting the newest version of Amphyon.
The new Amphyon release includes a support structure module that automatically generates necessary supports, making sure that critical values are not exceeded and that the desired shape of the part will be achieved. The automatic creation of the support geometry means that less post-processing is required and that the 3D printing process is stable and smooth. It saves material and reduces calculation time and development costs.
Another new feature in the latest version of Amphyon is adaptive meshing, which allows for the calculation of larger and more complex components and the possibility of exporting layer data. This will save time when developing models and create an improved workflow, integrating the support module and an improved connectivity to machines.
“We are excited to present the new version of our first-time-right additive manufacturing solution at formnext in Frankfurt. The new version will be a significant improvement for Amphyon users who can now perform calculations of even larger and more complex models and benefit from an overall improved, simulation-driven workflow. The new features, such as automatic generation of support structures, adaptive meshing, and the possibility to export layers will lead to significant time savings,” said Dr. rer. Nat. Nils Keller, Co-Founder & CEO at Additive Works. “With the new version, we are taking Amphyon to the next level, helping our customers to become even more efficient. Formnext will be the perfect platform to present our new module and I’m looking forward to demonstrating the latest features of our solution and its potential benefits to our visitors.”
Formnext will feature more than 500 exhibitors and is expecting over 20,000 visitors from around the world. Focused on the latest developments in additive manufacturing, the event will give attendees a fresh idea of how the technology can be used in serial production. At the Additive Works booth, visitors can get a look at the new version of Amphyon and see live demos. Experts from the company will be on hand to talk about the new features and capabilities of the software, and to answer any questions about additive manufacturing. If you’ll be attending formnext, you can stop by and visit Additive Works at Booth #3.1-G51. 3DPrint.com will be in attendance at the event as well.
