The numerical modeling of the physical process of manufacturing parts using additive technologies is complex and needs to consider a variety of thermomechanical behavior. This is connected with the extensive use of the finite element computer simulation by means of specialized software packages that implement mathematical models of the processes. The algorithm of calculation of nonstationary temperature fields and stress-strain state of the structure during the process of 3D deposition of wire materials developed and implemented in ANSYS is considered in the paper. The verification of the developed numerical algorithm for solving three-dimensional problem of the production of metal products using arc 3D deposition of wire materials with the results of the experiment is carried out. The data obtained from calculations on the developed numerical model are in good agreement with the experiment.
