Siemens acquires Atlas 3D – Expansion of Siemens Xcelerator software portfolio for additive manufacturing

With Atlas3D, designers and manufacturing engineers can quickly gain insights into the optimal part build orientation in order to minimize supports, distortion, effort to remove supports, part material, and printing time.

The existing high rate of 3D print failures must be addressed if companies want to use additive manufacturing for high-volume production. At present, parts often have to go through several design and analysis iterations before the optimal build orientation and support structures are determined. This takes time and money. With Sunata, designers can use thermal deformation analysis to easily and automatically determine the optimal part build orientation and generate support structures. This reduces the need for downstream analyses with Simcenter. Atlas 3D software will be made available online via the Additive Manufacturing Network.

Additive manufacturing for industry

“We welcome Atlas 3D to the Siemens community as the newest member of our additive manufacturing team. Our solutions industrialize additive manufacturing for large enterprises, 3D printing service bureaus, design firms and CAD (Computer Aided Design) designers,” said Zvi Feuer, Senior Vice President, Manufacturing Engineering Software of Siemens Digital Industries Software. For GPU-accelerated computing, a graphics processing unit (GPU) is combined with a central processing unit (CPU) to facilitate processing-intensive operations such as deep learning, analytics and engineering applications. “The cloud-based Sunata software makes it easy for designers to determine the optimal way to 3D print parts for high quality and repeatability. The combination of Sunata with the robust CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) additive manufacturing tools in Simcenter enables a ‘right first time’ approach for industrial 3D printing,” stated Feuer.
