One of the key success factors enabling the acceptance and growth of AM and Hybrid processes is the design of the parts to be manufactured. New thinking processes in engineering, new design rules and guidelines, new software tools, new standards, etc. are needed to reach the full potential and benefits of these technologies’ capabilities. This presentation will expose attendees to the freedom in design made possible with additive manufacturing.
- Retain an understanding of current state of the technology, materials and future trends, and the benefits of utilizing AM and Hybrid Manufacturing
- Receive a better understanding of DESIGN FOR AM and the importance to invest in education to tackle the shortage of engineering knowledge and expertise in the field
- Comprehend the potential of integrating Additive Manufacturing and Hybrid into existing production environments as a complementary technology to conventional industrial processes
