Amphyon simulation and pre-deformation integrated in PTC Creo's Design-to-part workflow for metal AM


The Design-to-Part Workflow


Step 1: Create the design

Use Creo (7.0+) to create generative designs for additive manufacturing by using state-of-the-art functions like (topology) optimization, lattice structures and further DfAM techniques...

Step 2: Prepare the build job

With the Creo functions for 3D Printing preparation, the model can be oriented, supported and nested in the tray within a few steps.


Step 3: Run simulation and conduct distortion compensation

The Amphyon for Creo Plugin runs a mechanical process simulation for all models in the tray. Afterwards, all models are replaced by modified geometries that compensate distortion from the printing process, including adjusted support structures.

Step 4: Print the parts

Final build job files are generated by Creo and the models can accurately be printed.
