I am trying to utilize the AdditiveWizard extension in ANSYS 19R1 to simulate the metal 3D printing process for a school project. I have followed many of the steps that "Simulation Is Knowledge" has done in his youtube videos. This is about the only resource that I have encountered on the AdditiveWizard. I have set the system up so that the part being printed is directly on the build plate (no support material). Everything seems to be set up properly but when I try to run the transient analysis I run into the error seen below.
*** ERROR *** CP = 1.406 TIME= 19:04:57
The mesh layer height 0 must not be less than the deposit thickness
I have looked around at mesh settings but I am unable to find anything on "mesh layer height".
I also have concern over not having an "AM Thermal Boundary Condition" when I utilize the Wizard extension in Mechanical. I notice that in the youtube simulations there is an "AM Thermal Boundary Condition". I am unsure if I am doing something wrong or if this is just a format change that ANSYS has introduced since the version of ANSYS (19.0) that he is using in his simulations.
If there are any ANSYS tutorial, tips and tricks, or forums for simulating 3D printing available for me to get more information about the process that would also be greatly appreciated. Additional applicable outside resources would also be useful.
Thank you for your time.
