Design for Additive Manufacturing - Part 2

September 30, 2020

About the Webinar:

This webinar aims to extend your knowledge about the unique design opportunities associated with Additive Manufacturing (AM). The webinar builds on the previous session which discusses design concepts applicable to AM and software tools including CAD and topology optimization. For this second part of the course, we will build our understanding of the digital thread by looking at the .STL and .AMF data transfer formats for AM. We will dive deep to recognise the manufacturing constraints that lead to general and process specific design rules so that you will avoid the common pitfalls. We will examine some of the important ISO/ASTM International standards and useful design guides available, plus a short overview regarding some of the resources when designing parts for the Covid-19 pandemic.

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.


Dr Eujn Pei is the Director for Postgraduate Research, and Director for Product Design Engineering at Brunel University London in the United Kingdom. His research focuses on Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) and 4D Printing. He has a strong track record of generating new knowledge and finding solutions with a significant impact in the industry, being active in Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) with companies. He chairs the British Standards Institute AMT/8 committee that publishes standards for Additive Manufacturing. He is the Convenor for the International Organization for Standardization ISO/TC261/WG4 that develops global standards for Additive Manufacturing Data and Design; and also chairs ISO/TC261/JG67 that focuses on Functionally Graded Additive Manufacturing. Eujin is a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and a Chartered Technological Product Designer (CTPD) with the Institution of Engineering Designers. He is the Editor-in-Chief for the Progress in Additive Manufacturing Journal.

AM CoE by the Numbers

With decades of experience in additive manufacturing, our team of experts is integral to our work. With team members located throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia, the AM CoE is able to provide agile support for global initiatives.


combined in-kind, government agency, and ASTM investment
projects initiated that will address AM standardization gaps

How can I participate?

  • Support through Research and Development

    Through the AM CoE, research priorities are identified by the top minds in the field and are matched from the start to the standards that need to be generated to ensure the resulting AM technology’s success.

  • Consortium for Materials Data and Standardization

    Consortia for Materials Data & Standardization (CMDS) enables companies of all sizes from across the entire additive manufacturing ecosystem to collaborate on standardizing the best practices for materials data generation.

  • Explore On-Demand Webinars

    The webinar series provides guidance sessions on multiple and diverse topics in AM Design, Fabrication, Post-processing, Mechanical testing, Non-destructive evaluation, Applications, and Qualification and Certification.

  • Education & Workforce Development

    Comprehensive program that educates and trains the additive manufacturing workforce at all levels, while continually incorporating new advances to respond to industry needs and leverage standardization, certification, and AM CoE partner expertise.
