As the metal AM industry grows and 3D printed components become increasingly complex, so does the need to integrate automated processes. It takes a lot of time to create support structures that anchor the part sufficiently and prevent warpage, but which are at the same time easy to remove. Especially parts with a complex geometry need to be prepared very thoroughly as each surface that lacks sufficient support may cause defects in the part or even build crashes.
Dr. Plumdita Jonas Aditya, Department of Mechanical Systems Engineering , Faculty of Engineering , Niigata University, is an expert in impact engineering and biomechanics. Dr. Mimics , a software for biomedical engineering by Materialize, was included in the research of the teacher who adopted finite element analysis (FEA) aiming at design improvement and optimal position determination of total hip arthroplasty (THA) instruments, which is increasing in Japan. Innovation Suite for Research is also active. This time, we will focus on the relationship between FEA and bio-medical engineering, and publish a detailed video of Dr. Plumdita's research ! This is a valuable lecture that can only be seen here.
