PhysicsX and Velo3D Partner
Partnership gives users of Velo3D and PhysicsX offerings access to AI-enabled physics simulation and optimization capabilities and manufacturing flexibility, companies say,
May 5, 2023
Velo3D, Inc. has established a strategic partnership with PhysicsX through Velo3D’s Technical Partner Program. The partnership gives Velo3D customers access to PhysicsX’s artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled physics simulation workflows to hyper-accelerate simulation loops, improve simulation fidelity and algorithmically explore complex design spaces to unlock new performance levels.
It also provides PhysicsX customers with access to advanced metal additive manufacturing capabilities.
“We started working with PhysicsX when we were building the Sapphire XC printer because we needed to optimize the flow of gas in the printer build chamber to eliminate soot build-up around the laser windows of the system,” says Benny Buller, Velo3D founder and CEO. “We quickly realized that PhysicsX’s capabilities could be a big boon to many of our customers who are pushing design performance limits. After working closely with them over the past two years, we've formalized our partnership to expose customers to the engineering synergy that exists by combining both companies' technologies.”
Simulation for Additive Manufacturing, or SFAM is a key component of PhysicsX’s processes that makes part and system performance achievable and manufacturable, the company says. Through use of multiphysics simulation with deep learning models, PhysicsX optimizes designs to maximize performance. Engineers and scientists can now rapidly optimize designs and improve design-to-production processes, from combustion efficiency improvements to manufacturing yield.
PhysicsX combines traditional computer-aided engineering with machine learning capabilities to replicate the physics of various real-world environments. PhysicsX’s AI-powered technology can increase the number of design cycles that are possible over a specific timeframe and fill in the gaps of numerical simulation with real-world data. This enables engineers to search a complex design space without imposing simplified design assumptions.
“PhysicsX supports customers in some of the most important industries of our time, including aerospace, automotive, sustainability and renewables,” says Robin Tuluie, PhysicsX founder and co-CEO. “Our technology can be deployed to evaluate performance in a variety of categories, such as system performance, efficiency, weight, noise, and other criteria. Through PhysicsX, engineers have improved reduced emissions from aircraft and road vehicles, won world championships in MotoGP, and increased the performance of wind and hydro turbines.”
Velo3D works with partners including contract manufacturers, commercial distributors, software and simulation providers, post-processing solutions and academic institutions to enable customers to build parts they need, speed up development, and reduce product costs. Its Technical Partner Program is focused on providing Velo3D customers with technology and services that complement its fully integrated additive manufacturing solution, so customers can more easily produce optimized final, ready-to-use parts.
