Optimal Structural Design for 3D Printing

- Airbus Group - ALCOA Power & Propulsion - ARUP - DMRC - Laser Zentrum Nord - Sogeclair Aerospace - RUAG Space - TITAL GmbH - Join us in Paris and see how you can innovate your 3D Printing design process!


Learn about today’s Additive Manufacturing (AM) related design development challenges and how to meet them at the 8th European ATC in Paris, from Sept. 29th - Oct. 1st 2015. By attending the European ATC you'll also learn more about how simulation with Altair's HyperWorks CAE suite can help you to develop and design better structures ready for AM, while lowering development efforts. The event offers the following AM related papers and topics:


  Tuesday, September 29th 2015 

Technical Seminar: Reengineering of Topology Optimization Results

Academic User Day: with technical oral presentations and a dedicated poster session including research for AM technologies

  Wednesday, September 30th 2015 

Structural Optimization of Building elements in Metal by using Additive Manufacturing
by Salome Galjaard, ARUP Amsterdam


Symposium: " How to Design for Additive Manufacturing?" 
In the afternoon of September 30th, we will offer a two hour Symposium dedicated entirely to "How to design for AM". After an introductory presentation from Altair, the Symposium will feature customer presentations. The session will conclude with a discussion round.
