Software companies ANSYS and Granta Design have joined forces to improve materials information is crucial for additive manufacturing (AM).

Uisng ANSYS’ simulation for metal powder bed AM with Granta’s existing GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for ANSYS Workbench could help integrate AM data capture, simulation and optimization, the companies say. Users can access validated materials data stored in their GRANTA MI corporate materials database, while working in ANSYS Workbench. The companies are also working to connect ANSYS Additive Print to GRANTA MI.

‘Our collaboration with ANSYS will help organizations working towards AM parts get it right the first time,’ said David Cebon, MD of Granta Design.
