Distortion, Deflection Prediction Capabilities Added to CAE Software
Part distortion and tool deflection are available as an upgrade to Third Wave System’s Production Module CAE software.
The software reads five-axis APT and G codes, permits importing of STEP and STL files, incorporates a database of workpiece bulk stresses, and automatically generates a thin-wall mesh. It automatically models factors such as cutting force distribution along the flute length, instantaneous cutting forces, and changes in cross-sectional moments of inertia along a tapered tool.
