A two day seminar, taking place November 22 – 23, 2016, in Helsinki, Finland, has been organised by NAFEMS Nordic in cooperation with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland to explore the design freedom of Additive Manufacturing through simulation. In addition to a comprehensive seminar programme, delegates will also have the opportunity to visit the AM facilities at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Aalto University.
The aim of this seminar is to provide an overview of the current state of AM, along with the challenges, risks and opportunities both for simulation engineers and for those within manufacturing. Speakers from industry, research institutes and universities will present on a wide range of topics including AM process simulation, topology optimisation, new design and simulation approaches. There will also be a workshop on the creation of design guidelines for selective laser melting.
NAFEMS is the International Association for the Engineering Modelling, Analysis and Simulation Community. The association provides the engineering analysis community with as many as fifty seminars, courses, workshops and open forums throughout the world each year.
