A braking system is an important system for a vehicle To stop a vehicle, brake torque needs to be delivered

from the brake caliper to the disc brake which eventually stops the rotating wheels The torque produced by

the brake caliper needs to be greater than the torque produced at the wheels and therefore, to develop

efficient design parameters for a brake caliper, vehicle design parameters need to optimize so that optimum

torque can be generated at the wheels from vehicle design calculations Design and analysis of metallic based

brake caliper has been carried for an All-Terrain vehicle using Additive Manufacturing For design modeling,

Solidworks has been used and from the simulation manufacturing aspect, Ansys and Simufact have been

used to analyze the stress, displacement, and surface deviation In addition to that design and performance

optimization has been carried out in Solidworks Ansys, and Simufact respectively Force and Torque

the calculation has been carried out for the brake caliper using Matlab Fine Meshing has been carried out while

analyzing the brake caliper in Ansys and Simuafact for optimum efficiency in results The designed brake

caliper is optimum in terms of weight, cost, and efficiency.
