This paper discusses the modeling and simulation of multi-materials for additive manufacturing. The mechanical property analysis of multi-materials is essential for developing a very feasible product. To that aim, a few steps are necessary, firstly, a database of those multi-materials is created. Secondly, stiffening technology is introduced together with an alternative optimization method. Finally, the material minimization technique is developed through the simulation results. Two methods are proposed for material optimization. The first method saves the materials twice, and the second method improves the stiffness characteristics of the materials.The developed method generates promising results, and it is applicable to composite geometries. The finding shows that the technique helps to reduce production costs at large.
