He is not alone, because data from joint registries show that 27% of the revisions is not an initial one and those re-revisions have a 3 times higher chance of failure compared to initial revisions.

AM Simulation: A Guide to the Best Part Orientation and Support Configuration

Solutions: FEA, Magics, Magics 3D Print Suite, Metal 3D Printing

In this case study, we investigate different part-support configurations of a patient-specific CMF implant, and determine which configuration is most suitable for the AM process. We do this by simulating deformations via inherent strain method and comparing the final deformations of the parts after support removal.
