  • Predict deformation: predict how metal additive manufactured parts will deform so that designs can be compensated
  • Detect re-coater interference: helps eliminate re-coater damage, which causes expensive downtime and manufacturing delays
  • Predict build support failures: helps part designers and manufacturing engineers to optimize the support designs
