This class builds on material covered in the Additive Manufacturing (AM) overview class (515.656) and previous Materials Science and Engineering courses such as Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Materials (515.602). We will learn the design process and design for AM specifically. Students will determine applications and opportunities to apply AM technology and also learn how to evaluate AM designs. Topics will include work flow decisions to determine AM application, design considerations for metal and polymer AM, design for multi-material and functional assembly applications, and AM design evaluation.
