The additive manufacturing technologies are being used to obtain final product and tooling with more complex geometries than those which can be produced with conventional manufacturing processes. The most innovative features of these technologies are based on the use/application of conformal internal channels, 3D-lattice structures and lightening geometries.
For the redesign, AIMME uses the following tools:
- Generic 3D CAD tool.
- Specific 3D-CAD tools for Additive Manufacturing.
- Topology optimization.
- Behavior analysis by FEM.
- Flow simulation by FEM.
