MultiMechanics teams with Fortify to make 3D printing more predictable

MultiMechanics, a developer of multiscale material modeling and simulation software, and Fortify, a Boston-based additive manufacturing company specialized in composite material systems, have announced a strategic partnership to improve theĀ predictability of composite 3D printing.

As part of the partnership, Fortify will use MultiMechanics’ flagship product, MultiMech, to predict the structural integrity of printed parts before printing, and to help optimize the design by controlling the fiber orientation throughout the structure.

“We see a definite need for better predictability of 3D printing, and we believe that our application poses a unique case for the MultiMech software,” stated Josh Martin, CEO of Fortify. “The resulting printed parts take full advantage of the strength-to-weight benefits of composite materials to a degree of resolution and complexity not possible before.”
