Design for Additive Manufacturing - elearning Course
This highly interactive eLearning course will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to be able to exploit the design freedom of Additive Manufacturing and take a design from conception through to AM processing.
- Explain how to optimise the functional design of a component for Additive Manufacturing?
- Demonstrate best practice in optimising a design for manufacture through simulation?
- Exploit the design freedom of AM?
- Describe best practice for down selection and finite element analysis?
If you’ve answered ‘no’ to any of these, then this course is for you.
This eLearning course is aimed at Design Engineers who are interesting in adopting additive manufacturing.
Upon completion of this course, you will:
- Differentiate between the old DfM/DfF rules and the new DfAM philosophy.
- Consider the new business models and opportunities which DfAM allows.
- Explain the ways DfAM can be used to add value including lightweighting, part consolidation and complex internal geometries.
- Define the available materials and processes and determine the factors which influence their suitability for a given design.
- State the opportunities for Reverse Engineering in AM.
- Apply AM design considerations to specific design features.
- Simulate Topology Optimisation for an AM part and explain the unique benefits of using this process with AM.
- Consider the design implications for later stages in the manufacturing process including post-processing and inspection.
- Identify the uses of simulation in Design for Function and Design for Manufacturability in AM.
- Recognise the file types, data workflow and possible upcoming changes to AM digital thread.
- Compare the overall workflow of DfAM with conventional manufacturing.
