Melbourne-based RMIT University to Implement MSC’s Simufact Additive

BENGALURU, India, Jul 10, 2019 – MSC Software Corporation (MSC),  a global leader in computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software and services,  announced that it had signed an agreement with Melbourne-based RMIT University’s Advanced Manufacture Precinct. The agreement is specially in the area of Additive Manufacturing and pertains to the use of MSC Software’s Simufact Additive solution by the University.

Simufact Additive is a robust and scalable process simulation environment for the first-time-right optimization of Metal Additive Manufacturing processes.

The University houses one of the largest Advanced Manufacturing Centres in Australia and is considered a leading Advanced Manufacturing Research and Development (R&D) facility in the country. The Advanced Manufacturing Precinct combines RMIT’s expertise in technology and design innovation.

Prof. Milan Brandt, Technical Director at Advanced Manufacturing Precinct, RMIT University, said, “Our vision is to be the leader in the implementation of the next wave of manufacturing in Australia. To this end, we believe in working closely with the best in the industry, both in Australia and internationally; as we go about developing the next generation of engineers, designers and technicians for the world. MSC Software’s Simufact Additive is a great package because it combines the best approaches in one unique software solution through a multi-scaling approach. We find it extremely valuable as it lays the foundation for a wide variability and scalability through different levels of detail for the simulation results.”

Sridhar Dharmarajan, Managing Director, Indo-Pacific Region, MSC Software, said that “RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct is leading the way in shaping the future of additive manufacturing locally with breakthrough research. Therefore, it gives us great pleasure to note that some of the best additive manufacturing minds of the future will have an opportunity to work with and understand Simufact Additive before they embark on their professional careers.”

Additive manufacturing promises to completely redefine the way we look at manufacturing processes in the future,” he further added.

Dr. Hendrik Schafstall, Simufact CEO elaborated on the technical superiority of the worlds leading AM Simulation product. He said, “Simufact Additive’s capabilities range from generative design & topology optimization, to process simulation and post-processing. This allows one to generate optimized components that are perfectly adapted to the operating conditions and ensure 3D printers can successfully produce the generated design.
