Integrated Design Tool Development for High Potential Additive Manufacturing Applications

Integrated Design Tool Development for High Potential Additive Manufacturing Applications
In this project, Pitt and ANSYS will work together to develop an integrated design suite with built-indesign aides for various AM manufacturability requirements and new topology optimization capabilitiesfor high potential additive manufacturing applications.  ExOne and EOS will be providing all the knownmanufacturability requirements of their AM systems to the software development teams of Pitt andANSYS. The other team members are committed to 1) utilize the developing design suite to optimizeparts that have great potential for real applications and 2) provide feedback on the design software to thedevelopment team.
