Stratasys, Dassault team up to improve AM design

Thu, Apr 13, 2017

Stratasys Ltd., an Eden Prairie, Minn., maker of 3-D printers, has partnered with a French supplier of product-development software to improve the functionality, efficiency and weight ratio of parts made through additive manufacturing, specifically, fused-deposition-modeling printing. Dassault Systèmes, Vélizy-Villacoublay, France, and Stratasys worked together to add high-performance simulation tools for Stratasys’ FDM 3-D printers and materials, including strength- and fatigue-analysis capabilities, using Dassault’s 3DExperience platform.
