Virtual Material Development
Stratasys and e-Xstream engineering have been working together for a number of years on finding the best ways to use Digimat to model additive manufacturing with simulation that represents what that part really is and how it’s made. By having a valid simulation toolset, as we have with Digimat we can treat 3D printing as any other manufacturing technology

Predict the mechanical, thermal and electrical behaviour of materials
Virtual Material Development is aimed at accelerating the development of advanced material systems such as engineering plastics, composites, metals, ceramics and bridges the gap between the digital model and the manufactured product in a faster and more affordable way.
Our extensive tool, based on the Digimat product solution, allows our customers to predict the mechanical, thermal and electrical behaviour of materials, based on their underlying microstructure.
This microstructure can be built completely into our software, or it can come from CT scanning or molecular dynamics delivered by specialist partners.
We are able to give our users 100% confidence in their composite products, thanks to an accurate description of the local composite behaviour. Accurate material modelling allows composite materials to use 100% of their potential.
