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.
CAxMan partner Jotne was awarded the ICONIC SME CERTIFICATE at the Innovation session on Smart Manufacturing in Amsterdam, presented at the Digital Innovation Forum 2017.24 February 2016 CAxMan Pre-Workshop @ WMF 2016
The CAxMan project will hold a Pre-Workshop before the World Manufacturing Forum in Barcelona this May. Registration is now open. Register NOW!03 February 2016 CAxMan Consortium meeting
The CAxMan projet partners have meet this days in Barcelona to discuss face to face the way forward for the project.
In the context of AM, the Conference will focus on simulation for different AM technologies (fused deposition, laser based methods, …), multi-physics and multi-scale simulation, material modeling, shape and topology optimization, CAD to part chain, validation and verification, innovative application, and related research areas.11 June 2017 Jotne presentation at NAFEMS in Stockholm
