SIMTEC, the leading certified channel partner of ANSYS in SE Europe, organises introductory training about topology optimization and additive manufacturing simulation with ANSYS. Attend to learn how ANSYS simulation offers insights into  the entire process of additive manufacturing:

  • Find the optimal design with ANSYS topology optimization.
  • Explore how the 3D printing process goes and what influence it has on the form of the component.
  • Generate error-free components in the first printing process.


Cost: Participation is free
