This validation case demonstrates PanX accuracy on a printed component as compared to surface scan data.
This model runs in 36 minutes on an 8 core laptop, and uses only 56GB of RAM.
Build Line Prediction
Velo Heat Exchanger
This part exhibits several severe build lines on the front lip of the inlet. PanX captures both the build lines on the front lip, as well as the distinctive kinks in the supports
Small Feature Stress Prediction
Capture Stress concentrations
PanX multi-grid allows the simulation to capture extremely fine features and which ones are highly stressed during the build
Ultra Large Simulation
PanX can Simulate Any Geomety
PanX multi-grid allows allows geometry such as our "Instant Regret" heat exchanger to simulate in a few days on consumer grade hardware - a feat that would not be possible running legacy simulations on a super-computer
Down to the Last Detail
PanX multi-grid enables the solver to capture not only bulk deformation, but small detail such as shrink lines, stress concentrations and waviness within the heat exchanger fins.
6-Axis DED Crack Mitigation
PanX generates the mesh for 2.5 and 6-axis DED simulation directly from the laser toolpath
User controls whether individual scans, or larger blocks of material are added during each timestep
For this case, PanX was used to evaluate stress level response due to several design and fixturing changes to reduce cracking.
Each run solved in 30 minutes on a 48 core PC and only used 19GB of ram
