In Additive Manufacturing Wizard, no support structure has been generated to connect the part to the rectangular base plate and to support the hole in the middle of the. I have also tried running the simulation, but it fails due to a lack of support structure.  See screenshots.

Thanks

I am setting up a simulation using the ANSYS Additive Manufacturing extension. Below is a picture of the setup.

I import my geometry file successfully and then open the "Model" option to set up the simulation using the ANSYS Additive Manufacturing Wizard. When begin using the Additive Manufacturing Wizard I get the following message, which I'm not sure is an issue or not.

When I get to the support structure step in the wizard, I set the support structure settings with as shown below.

However, when I finish all the steps of the Additive Manufacturing Wizard, no support structure has been generated to connect the part to the rectangular base plate and to support the hole in the middle of the part, as seen below. I have also tried running the simulation, but it fails due to a lack of support structure.

 

 

Here's another view of the part with no support structure.

Workbench Additive requires your part to be aligned in Z direction. So your build direction should be in the +Z direction instead of Y direction which is currently used. Please reorient your part and baseplate.

kkhan:

re-aligning to Z direction solved the problem, you can close the ticket as solved.

Thanks
