Simulation of Solid Freeform Fabrication [article]

Stuart Brown
Solid freeform fabrication involves highly coupled, nonlinear, thermomechanical processes. This investigation simulates the formation of a simple SFF geometry, a right, rectangular prism with aspect ratios of 1: 1:2. We include the effects of material variation, deposition path, and initial conditions to predict resulting distortion.
