Simulation is an essential tool to predict build failures. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a calibration profile your machine in Materialise Magics Simulation software. We recommend that you first create a calibration build for your machine to capture your machine settings, powder properties and process parameters. We’ll then show you how to set up a mechanical simulation in Magics and run it in the job manager. Finally, you’ll learn how to inspect the simulation results on various failure criteria and adjust your support structures when needed. Materialise Magics makes it easy to improve your previous build setups and re-run the simulations fast.
In addition to a detailed ʻHelpʼ function in all of our products, our tutorials, and the other resources here in the Materialise Academy | Software, our expert support team is available to answer your questions and provide any necessary assistance. For customers with a maintenance package, this support service is included.
