AdditiveLab, based in Leuven, Belgium, has partnered with with AddUp, headquartered in Cébazat, France, to release the latest version of AddUp Manager. The build preparation software for metal Additive Manufacturing now includes a simulation engine specifically designed to streamline and optimise the production process on the FormUp 350 Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machine.

AddUp Manager allows users to fine-tune over 250 variables and parameters, create custom melting strategies, and visualise laser trajectories. The latest release, version 7.6, integrates a simulation module in an effort to enhance precision and flexibility in high-quality metal Additive Manufacturing.

“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, AdditiveLab CEO. “This partnership presented an excellent opportunity to collaborate and make an impact on industrialising metal AM.”

The companies believe that stimulation software is crucial in metal Additive Manufacturing for predicting stresses and deformations in the build before manufacturing begins. By anticipating and correcting these issues, manufacturers can reduce errors and increase success rates. The new simulation software integrated into AddUp Manager 7.6 offers a solution for optimising scanning strategies and understanding the intricate details of the Additive Manufacturing process.

Many Additive Manufacturing 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 singular platform that reduces the learning curve associated with multiple software tools.

By From AddUp’s perspective, the collaboration was a clear choice. “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” explained Sebastien Devroe, AddUp’s Chief Technology Officer. “The partnership with AdditiveLab ensures our customers have a seamless and efficient user experience.
