Accurate physics-based computer simulations can provide valuable insight into the additive manufacturing process and help optimize process parameters and decrease print failures of parts. In this paper we review recent developments in the commercially available finite element solver Abaqus aimed at providing accurate, scalable, and predictive simulation of 3D printing processes. The technology uses the following components: voxel and unstructured meshing, toolpath-mesh intersections module, progressive element activation, progressive heating for laser energy sources, progressive cooling via convection and radiation on a surface that evolves, material models for metallurgical phase transformation, coupled thermomechanical simulation, and eigen strain based simulation. It provides a scalable framework for part-level simulations of a wide range of AM processes including, but not limited to, selective laser melting, polyjet, inkjet, and fused deposition modeling technologies. We also present predictions of distortions, residual stresses, and phase transformation from a number of exemplary simulation studies of SLM AM process.
