Computational Analysis of FDM-Produced Components and Importance of Print Orientation

The Fused Deposition Modeling™ (FDM) manufacturing process allows for components to be fabricated quickly and easily to assist throughout many steps of the product development process. Increasingly, these FDM components are being targeted for end-use applications, instead of their more common use in prototyping. This has driven an increased demand for computational analyses on these components, to decrease the design iteration cycles, as well as to allow components to be more optimized and truly take advantage of what FDM can offer. However, the FDM process introduces manufacturing flaws and material property differences that must be accounted for if the computational model is to accurately represent real-world performance. This white paper explores these nuances, presents possible solutions, and details an example of how print orientation specifically can affect part performance.
