Each manufacturing method has its own set of rules and design guidelines.  Additive Manufacturing is no different.  Learn the new rule book for Additive Manufacturing and how to best leverage its benefits.

  • Understand basic AM principles
  • Understand basic drivers of AM part cost
  • Learn when it makes sense to use AM
  • Understand basic design principles for AM

Additive Manufacturing (AM), once thought of as a technology purely for rapid prototyping, is increasingly being used by manufacturers to produce tooling and end use parts.

The design freedom provided by AM is allowing businesses to produce highly-customized and intricate parts that are unattainable or impractical with conventional manufacturing processes. However, AM requires a different mindset when it comes to design and it is important for manufacturers to learn DfAM guidelines in order to take full advantage of AM’s unique capabilities.
