AddUp Inc, headquartered in Cébazat, France, has joined the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, an ecosystem offering a dedicated set of applications for Additive Manufacturing from new material characterisation, adapted design and build job preparation and simulation, to shop floor scheduling and execution monitoring. Through the single platform, users can ensure digital continuity across the entire lifecycle.

Through the collaboration, a virtual twin of AddUp’s FormUp 350 AM machine has been created. Using AddUp NTwin enables 3DEXPERIENCE platform users to seamlessly produce a job file, retrieve additional build information and run simulations.

“Dassault Systèmes and AddUp have developed a virtual twin of the FormUp 350 machine in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform which enables the production file to be created interactively. Thanks to this virtual twin, Dassault Aviation is able to ensure digital continuity from design to manufacturing of the part in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform,” shared Dassault Aviation.

Users can access 3DEXPERIENCE platform features and applications, while creating strategies and generating trajectories using the AddUp Trajectory Generator. To enable process accuracy, trajectories are displayed directly in the DELMIA application, before being sent to SIMULIA applications for process simulation.

At the heart of this collaboration is reported to be Aeroprint, a R&D project driven by Dassault Aviation and located in the French region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. One of the expected deliverables is the establishment of a certified AM pilot line for aeronautics. Dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Additive Manufacturing by the aeronautics industry, an industrial platform at the Argonay site is being set up.

The solution is now available and can be download from the AddUp community, where users can also find further information as well as ask AddUp and Dassault Systèmes members questions.
