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 the relevance to Calculix. Anyway, here is a bit and hopefully more to come:
Some processes also require moving heat source model - for example the one developed by Goldak. Most AM process simulations are fully coupled thermo-mechanical analyses but some use new simplified approach called eigenstrain analysis.
Yes it is interesting. Thanks for the pointer but I do not think Cura is the right type of software.EkaitzEsteban wrote: ↑Thu Jul 11, 2019 6:51 pm Hello,
Very interesting topic !!!
There is a plugin which links freecad with Cura software based 3d printing machines,
Maybe can help...
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 those machines for a while. So, I have requested that AlphaStar send a Genoa generated .inp file which well demos their software. Hopefully I get something next week.
