Amphyon was created to replace experimentally determined build-up strategies by simulation aided process strategies to save costs, time and energy in development of additively manufactured (AM) components. By the integration of fast numerical process analysis and simulation into the process chain, surface quality and shape accuracy can be increased without the need for further action by the user. Amphyon consists of several modules that support the pre-processing steps and enhance the process itself. There are three major applications Amphyon and its modules focus on:

  • help designers to learn how to deal with AM and its issues

  • help researchers to study process physics by numerical simulation

  • help manufacturers to optimize pre-processing and build data within a few steps
