Design for Additive Manufacturing - Part 1

October 22, 2020

About the Course

The design principles for additive manufacturing are different from conventional manufacturing methods. To fully leverage the capabilities of AM, a new design approach is required. This webinar will help you to understand the unique design opportunities associated with additive manufacturing, as well as the challenges. The webinar covers the design concepts applicable to AM, and design rules that can be used to manufacture parts using AM processes. Attendees will receive an introduction to design validation and also an understanding of ASTM F42 standards for design.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course learners will be able to:

  • Understand the concepts and objectives for AM design
  • Understand the design approach to Additive Manufacturing
  • Apply design considerations for unique design features in AM
  • Understand key design rules applied for AM design
  • Have knowledge of existing standards that can be applied for AM design

Who Should Attend

This webinar is intended for Design engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, Research Engineers, Product designers, AM technicians, and CAD operators.
