This report presents the feasibility and the methods used to 3D print high performance computing HPC simulation results of the formation of shaped charge jets SCJs and penetration into armor. The 3D simulations were conducted using computing resources from the US Department of Defense DOD HPC Modernization Program, and the Fused Deposition Modeling printer used was the Ultimaker S3. The conversion of 3D HPC simulation results for use with additive manufacturing is presented and shown as a new tool for DOD researchers to visualize, analyze, and compare HPC simulations of SCJ formation and penetration to experimental results.
