KurzbeschreibungYou will learn about different Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing, AM) processes and Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) methods. You will apply these methods to design your own AM part and print it.
LernzielBasic Knowledge of AM processes, DfAM methods, and design applications will be acquired to enable students to solve design problems and prototype using this new paradigm in manufactuing. They will get hands-on experience applying both generative and restrictive DfAM methods. They will also design their own AM artifact and have the opportunity to manufacture it using AM.
