Dassault Systèmes has announced a partnership with aerospace giant Safran Group, to improve the virtual validation of the additive manufacturing (AM) process using Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

The aim of the partnership is to develop an improved digital solution for additive manufacturing. This new end-to-end process will address upstream material design and downstream manufacturing processes and testing to provide digital continuity for all engineering parameters necessary for the additive manufacturing of an engine part, including material science, functional specification, generative design, 3D printing optimization, multi-robotic production and certification.

‘Together with Safran, we can nurture virtual world processes for a complete approach in this field that will help revolutionize tomorrow’s manufacturing,’ said Dominique Florack, senior executive vice president, research & development, Dassault Systèmes.
