Re: Merge of Link3 branch into master

Sorry, I know this sounds dumb but is this merge part of FreeCAD 0.19 Daily?

Thank you Realthunder, Wmayer and all others involved in this step towards a stronger FreeCAD with an assembly.

Re: FEA for additive manufacturing.

The "Material Point Method" may hold more promise for this type of analysis: Nice! Thanks. Also, I have been in contact with one author from this paper https://www.researchgate.net/publication/322688604_A_Computationally_Efficient_Finite_Element_Framework_to_Simulate_Additive_Manufacturing_Processe...

Re: FEA for additive manufacturing.

I send requests to two sources and have received nothing back even after reminders. Maybe something will show up next week but I doubt it.

Re: FEA for additive manufacturing.

Just try a demo of genoa export the inp file and try it/ share it ... We can see what happens This would have to be done at De Anza Colleges DMT lab in Cupertino or possibly at Hawkridge Systems in San Jose to access their industrial printers. Currently, I am in Canada and will not be able to use t...

Re: FEA for additive manufacturing.

Found this video on simulations of the AM process.
At about 18 minutes in it starts to describe the problem.

phpBB [video]


Still waiting on more details about how this type of software does this and whether Calculix could be coaxed into doing it as well.

Re: FEA for additive manufacturing.

Hello, Very interesting topic !!! There is a plugin which links freecad with Cura software based 3d printing machines, https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?t=30540 Maybe can help... Yes it is interesting. Thanks for the pointer but I do not think Cura is the right type of software. I appears ...

Re: FEA for additive manufacturing.

Would be good to get more background informations how such an analysis is performed. I am seeing if i can get some more but in the mean time the following comment was made about these types of simulations and i assume it's about stuff they also do. Since i am a neophyte at all this i do not know th...

Re: FEA for additive manufacturing.

Wait a minute, you are saying Calculix will do FEA and thermal analysis as each layer of material is put down by the 3D printer. Layer by layer simulations which add to what previously has be built until the part is finished printing? This is not just a simulation of a finished part but a simulation...
