AdditiveLab, a leader in simulation software development for metal additive manufacturing, has partnered with AddUp, a global metal additive manufacturing OEM, to release the latest version of AddUp Manager. This advanced build preparation software for metal 3D printing now includes a powerful simulation engine, specifically designed to streamline and optimize the production process on the FormUp 350 Powder Bed Fusion machine.

AddUp Manager, known for its comprehensive build preparation capabilities, allows users to fine-tune over 250 variables and parameters, create custom melting strategies, and visualize laser trajectories. The latest release, version 7.6, integrates an intuitive and efficient simulation module, enhancing precision and flexibility for high-quality metal 3D printing.

With a decade of experience, AdditiveLab understands the challenges companies face when adapting AM technology at an industrial level, particularly in optimizing manufacturing success. “We are excited to partner with AddUp because their customers use metal AM for challenging designs at a serial production level. Our software integration will help AddUp customers overcome production challenges, enabling them to manufacture complex designs more efficiently,” said Christian Rossmann, CEO of AdditiveLab. “This partnership presented an excellent opportunity to collaborate and make an impact on industrializing metal AM.”

Simulation software is crucial in metal 3D printing for predicting stresses and deformations in the build before printing begins. By anticipating and correcting these issues, manufacturers can significantly reduce errors and increase success rates. The new simulation software integrated into AddUp Manager 7.6 offers a fast, accurate, and user-friendly solution for optimizing scanning strategies and understanding the intricate details of the additive manufacturing process.

Many metal 3D printing users have had to rely on separate software for build preparation and simulation, which increases costs as well as the potential for overlooked deformations or errors across platforms. The integration of a simulation engine within AddUp Manager simplifies the build preparation process – providing a unified platform that enhances efficiency and reduces the learning curve associated with multiple software tools.

“After testing multiple options, the result from AdditiveLab was superior. Their simulation software was very simple to use and provided an easy way to integrate functionality into AddUp Manager,” said Sebastien Devroe, CTO at AddUp. “The partnership with AdditiveLab ensures our customers have a seamless and efficient user experience.”
