Importing Polymer Material

    • egarcia9412


      I am trying to input a polymer material and its properties in the Additive App for thermal strain and porosity simulation.

      1.) I am having difficulty creating the files that are needed to import the material data. Is there a walkthrough or lecture on how to import materials in the Additive App? See Attached

      2.) Is it possible to simulate an imported polymer through Additive Print and Additive Science?

      The additive suite of products is intended for 3D printing process simulation of metals, not polymers. nHaving said that, there is a beta document available in R2020-R2 that offers additional insights into how to build customized property files in json and csv format for importing for a user defined material. nIn R2020-R2 - Go to the online docs for Additive Users Guide (Print and Science)- Creating User Defined Materials- (link below)n on the hyperlink in last paragraph ...An in-depth document is available... that describes the theory and procedure, including the use of Material Tuner tool(beta).
