Computer Aided Technologies for Additive Manufacturing (CAxMan)

The objectives of Computer Aided Technologies for Additive Manufacturing (CAxMan) are to establish Cloud based Toolboxes, Workflows and a One Stop-Shop for CAx-technologies supporting the design, simulation and process planning for Additive Manufacturing.

The Additive Manufacturing (AM) market is expected reach 16.2 billion USD by 2018. As a result, there will be increasing demand for a software ecosystem that enables Computer Aided Technologies (CAx) support of AM processes and machines. However, to move from prototypes and demonstration 3D-models to real industrial use one needs to document and certify the quality of the outcomes of AM processes, such as product strength, surface quality, material behaviour and shape constraints.

The project will establish novel workflows and services for discrete manufacturing (combinations of additive and subtractive) by addressing analysis-/simulation-based design, analysis/simulation of process planning, showcasing the CAx technologies as Cloud based services and Workflows in the Cloud for two use cases from design to production of physical prototypes.
