MSC Software Corporation (MSC), a global leader in computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software and services, signed an agreement with Melbourne-based RMIT University’s Advanced Manufacture Precinct. The agreement is especially in the area of Additive Manufacturing and pertains to the use of MSC Software’s Simufact Additive solution by the University.

Simufact Additive is a robust and scalable process simulation environment for the first-time-right optimization of Metal Additive Manufacturing processes.

The University houses one of the largest Advanced Manufacturing Centres in Australia and is considered a leading Advanced Manufacturing Research and Development (R&D) facility in the country. The Advanced Manufacturing Precinct combines RMIT’s expertise in technology and design innovation.

RMIT University is striving to lead the next wave of manufacturing in Australia, working closely with AM industry leaders both in Australia and internationally to develop the next generation of engineers, designers and technicians. “MSC Software’s Simufact Additive is a great package because it combines the best approaches in one unique software solution through a multi-scaling approach,” commented Prof. Milan Brandt, Technical Director at Advanced Manufacturing Precinct, RMIT University. “We find it extremely valuable as it lays the foundation for a wide variability and scalability through different levels of detail for the simulation results.”

Simufact Additive´s capabilities range from generative design & topology optimization, to process simulation and post-processing. This allows one to generate optimized components that are perfectly adapted to the operating conditions and ensure 3D printers can successfully produce the generated design.

Sridhar Dharmarajan, Managing Director, Indo-Pacific Region, MSC Software, concluded saying that “RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct is leading the way in shaping the future of additive manufacturing locally with breakthrough research. “Therefore, it gives us great pleasure – he said – to note that some of the best additive manufacturing minds of the future will have an opportunity to work with and understand MSC Software’s Simufact Additive before they embark on their professional careers.”

Additive manufacturing promises to completely redefine the way we look at manufacturing processes in the future,” he further added.
