Part Certification and Replication Tools
Additive manufacturing generates vast amounts of data with countless iterations, each with a different impact. Data collection can be wholly beneficial if supported by a digital business platform that can extract meaningful patterns from these data sets.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform covers the entire additive manufacturing process from end to end. Data is streamlined and stored on the platform, offering manufacturers certification and replication capabilities. Manufacturers can extract past machine parameters to get the same results if an item needs to be reprinted in the future. Additive manufacturing leverages a 3D printer's stored data of characteristics, materials and laser paths.
DELMIA Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing Solution:
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers the following advantages to additive manufacturers:
- Part Validation for the performance of the parts before they are 3D printed.
- Part Simulation of the additive manufacturing process allows manufacturers to virtually explore all the machine parameters specified for a build.
- Part Traceability between engineering and manufacturing means an accurate replication of parts.

TriMech Additive Manufacturing Solutions
While many technology service providers can assist manufacturers in their additive manufacturing journey, TriMech and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers a number of advantages over the competition:
AM Simulation Capabilities
High-level simulation capabilities allow manufacturers to validate the performance of the parts they want to produce before they’re printed. This will help to reduce time and resource wastage.
Accurate and scalable simulation of the additive manufacturing process allows manufacturers to virtually explore all the machine parameters specified for a build. This will help them to understand the impact on the part quality metrics.
For simultaneous, high quantity production, full thermal simulation can take into account the conditions of printing one part versus several parts, and how the temperature of the first part will affect the next in line.
Traceability and Accurate Replication
The integrated 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows data to be stored in a single location. Manufacturers, particularly in precision-focused industries like aerospace, can be confident that they’ll be able to reproduce the same parts in the future using the same original machine parameters — anywhere the parts are needed.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform makes it possible to mass-produce certified parts. The business platform and model-based engineering approach can be used to store the scan parts for the print process.
This creates a traceability linkage between engineering and manufacturing. If engineering changes are made on the generative part, the scan paths can be automatically identified and changes implemented. The storage of scan paths also allows for quick and accurate reprinting.
