Bryan is going to discuss the conversation that should happen between engineering and manufacturing in part selection. This would include the design process changes that need to happen when you’re designing for additive manufacturing. With 3D printing, designers can create the parts to do live testing before they can fully analyze them, disrupting current internal processes for the design cycle. He’ll also discuss how to focus your design efforts after part selection, targeting specific joining operations/special processes to reduce total cost of ownership and improved part lifing.
