Teton Simulation and Polymaker Collaborate on new Case Study

We recently teamed up with our partner Polymaker to demonstrate the performance of their PolyMide™ CoPA filament by comparing predictions from SmartSlice™ to experimentally generated data for a roof rack bracket.

The predictions from SmartSlice™ were produced in a matter of minutes by simply defining the material, print settings, and use case (how the part is loaded and constrained), and then having SmartSlice™ automatically run the structural simulation and post-process the results.

SmartSlice™ was also used to optimize the print settings for the part based on user-defined stiffness and strength requirements which minimizes 3D print time and material usage. Further, the performance of PolyMide™ CoPA was compared to the performance of a generic ABS filament. A plot of the part yield load vs. print configuration is shown below and it is clear that SmartSlice™ is able to accurately predict the performance and trends in yield load and it is also evident that PolyMide™ CoPA is a superior material compared to ABS for this application.
