AI Helps Model Performance of Metal Additive Manufacturing
Additive manufacturing can help make products or parts on-demand in automotive engineering, manufacturing and even in outer space.

But it is difficult to know the performance of a 3D-printed object currently and in the future. Physical experiments, particularly for metal additive manufacturing (AM), are expensive and slow. Modeling such systems computationally is costly and laborious.
