Book Description :

This book provides a wealth of practical guidance on how to design parts to gain the maximum benefit from what additive manufacturing (AM) can offer. It begins by describing the main AM technologies and their respective advantages and disadvantages. It then examines strategic considerations in the context of designing for additive manufacturing (DfAM), such as designing to avoid anisotropy, designing to minimize print time, and post-processing, before discussing the economics of AM. The following chapters dive deeper into computational tools for design analysis and the optimization of AM parts, part consolidation, and tooling applications. They are followed by an in-depth chapter on designing for polymer AM and applicable design guidelines, and a chapter on designing for metal AM and its corresponding design guidelines. These chapters also address health and safety, certification and quality aspects. A dedicated chapter covers the multiple post-processing methods for AM, offering the reader practical guidance on how to get their parts from the AM machine into a shape that is ready to use. The book’s final chapter outlines future applications of AM. The main benefit of the book is its highly practical approach: it provides directly applicable, “hands-on” information and insights to help readers adopt AM in their industry

Book Description :

Additive Manufacturing is a new manufacturing method which adds material layer-by-layer to produce an object. This report set out to investigate a number of questions relating to Additive Manufacturing and its implications on current design practice, products and users. An introduction to Additive Manufacture as a process and how it has evolved from Rapid Prototyping is given. This report documents the Design for Manufacture constraints which Injection Moulding, a traditional manufacturing method, incurs and gives details of why most do not apply to Additive Manufacturing. The main freedom of traditional constraints comes from the nature of Additive Manufacturing being tool-less and therefore considerations such as constant wall thickness and non-undercutting geometry are not applicable. New constraints when 'Designing for Additive Manufacture' are given and explained including the need to remove support material or excess resin from within hollow geometry. Further still this report investigates consumer awareness and reception to Additive Manufacture through primary research in the form of a questionnaire - the first research of its kind into this topic.

Book Description :

The wide diffusion of 3D printing technologies continuously calls for effective solutions for designing and fabricating objects of increasing complexity. The so called "computational fabrication" pipeline comprises all the steps necessary to turn a design idea into a physical object, and this book describes the most recent advancements in the two fundamental phases along this pipeline: design and process planning. We examine recent systems in the computer graphics community that allow us to take a design idea from conception to a digital model, and classify algorithms that are necessary to turn such a digital model into an appropriate sequence of machining instructions.

Book Description :

In recent decades, the development of computer-controlled manufacturing by adding materiallayer by layer, called Additive Manufacturing (AM), has developed at a rapid pace. The technologyadds possibilities to the manufacturing of geometries that are not possible, or at leastnot economically feasible, to manufacture by more conventional manufacturing methods. AMcomes with the idea that complexity is free, meaning that complex geometries are as expensiveto manufacture as simple geometries. This is partly true, but there remain several design rulesthat needs to be considered before manufacturing. The research field Design for Additive Manufacturing(DfAM) consists of research that aims to take advantage of the possibilities of AMwhile considering the limitations of the technique. Computer Aided technologies (CAx) is the name of the usage of methods and software thataim to support a digital product development process. CAx includes software and methodsfor design, the evaluation of designs, manufacturing support, and other things. The commongoal with all CAx disciplines is to achieve better products at a lower cost and with a shorterdevelopment time. The work presented in this thesis bridges DfAM with CAx with the aim of achieving designautomation for AM. The work reviews the current DfAM process and proposes a new integratedDfAM process that considers the functionality and manufacturing of components. Selectedparts of the proposed process are implemented in a case study in order to evaluate theproposed process. In addition, a tool that supports part of the design process is developed. The proposed design process implements Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) witha parametric CAD model that is evaluated from functional and manufacturing perspectives. Inthe implementation, a structural component is designed using the MDO framework, which includesComputer Aided Engineering (CAE) models for structural evaluation, the calculation ofweight, and how much support material that needs to be added during manufacturing. Thecomponent is optimized for the reduction of weight and minimization of support material,while the stress levels in the component are constrained. The developed tool uses methodsfor high level Parametric CAD modelling to simplify the creation of parametric CAD modelsbased on Topology Optimization (TO) results. The work concludes that the implementation of CAx technologies in the DfAM process enablesa more automated design process with less manual design iterations than traditional DfAM processes.It also discusses and presents directions for further research to achieve a fully automateddesign process for Additive Manufacturing.

Book Description :

Additive manufacturing (AM) is one of the manufacturing processes that warrants the attention of industrialists, researchers and scientists, because of its ability to produce materials with a complex shape without theoretical restrictions and with added functionalities. There are several advantages to employing additive manufacturing as the primary additive manufacturing process. However, there exist several challenges that need to be addressed systematically. A couple such issues are alloy design and process development. Traditionally alloys designed for conventional cast/powder metallurgical processes were fabricated using advanced AM processes. This is the wrong approach considering that the alloys should be coined based on the process characteristics and meta-stable nature of the process. Hence, we must focus on alloy design and development for AM that suits the AM processes. The AM processes, however, improve almost every day, either in terms of processing capabilities or processing conditions. Hence, the processing part warrants a section that is devoted to these advancements and innovations. Accordingly, the present Special Issue (book) focuses on two aspects of alloy development and process innovations. Here, 45 articles are presented covering different AM processes including selective laser melting, electron beam melting, laser cladding, direct metal laser sintering, ultrasonic consolidation, wire arc additive manufacturing, and hybrid manufacturing. I believe that this Special Issue bears is vital to the field of AM and will be a valuable addition.

Book Description :

Additive manufacturing (AM) offers unprecedented design freedom to produce complex designs in a single step. Laser-based powder bed fusion, in particular, is a promising metal AM process to fabricate complex metal parts that are otherwise difficult, costly, or impossible to manufacture using traditional means. Many techniques for lightweighting designs and improving part performance such as topology optimization, lattice structures, and part consolidation, often result in designs with complex features that can only be made with AM. Although AM is not necessarily constrained by this geometric complexity, it does require unsupported/overhanging features in the design to be structurally supported by additional structures that can be later removed by post-processing using various techniques such as hand tools, machining, wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining), etc. Depending on the complexity of the part, support structures can often be substantial, difficult to access, and complex in shape; therefore, removing the support structures may be very difficult and require multiple post-processing steps. As a result, overall manufacturing cost, material consumption, and manufacturing time may unnecessarily increase, making AM less economical than initially conceived. Additionally, the thermo-mechanical nature of the metal AM process induces residual stresses and distortions in the built parts. In-process distortions can lead to build failures, part curling and warping, and material waste. Therefore, many designs cannot be easily manufactured using AM or may actually cost more to produce with AM. Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) can remedy these limitations. DfAM encompass a set of principles or guidelines based on theory and experience to help design parts to be manufactured easily with AM. Effective implementation of DfAM during the design phase can result in parts suitable for AM, which can be affordable to make and easier to produce. However, the strategies to implement DfAM principles are not generalized and vary from part to part, process to process, and material to material. These part-specific requirements may require modifications in the existing design workflow, and a single workflow may not be suitable for all the design cases. To understand some of these differences, this thesis focuses on investigating the design process for leveraging metal AM capabilities at different levels of design complexities by redesigning three industry relevant components for additive manufacturing. In each case, the design conceptualization, workflow, design tools, DfAM principles, and improvement in product performance are compared and contrasted. Based on these three cases, recommendations are made for improving the design tools, and ultimately for improving the design workflow to reduce the computation time and improve the information flow across the software platforms.

Book Description :

Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes exhibit a unique set of capabilities and limitations. The growing implementation of AM processes has provided designers with a newfound design freedom, previously limited by traditional manufacturing. Despite the increase in their use for industrial manufacturing, limited research has investigated how knowledge of the properties of AM processes could affect engineering design outcomes. Therefore, the goal of this thesis was to investigate how variations in design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) education content affect engineering students design processes and the creativity of their design outcomes. In particular, the effects of restrictive and opportunistic DfAM education were compared to the control group of no DfAM training for their impact on student: (1) motivation and interest in AM, (2) DfAM self-efficacy, (3) self-reported use of DfAM in the design process, (4) expert assessment of the creativity and technical goodness of the design outcomes, and (5) perceived utility of the intervention. The results of the research suggest that variations in the content of DfAM education presented through the studied intervention fails to influence students use of DfAM in the design process. The creativity of the students design outcomes were similar across all three educational intervention groups. Further, we see that the technical goodness of the students design outcomes decreases from before to after the intervention, and a similar result is seen among all three educational groups. This suggests there exists an influence of the design task on the students use of DfAM in the design process, which needs further research. Finally, we see that students previous AM experience influences their learning attitude towards DfAM and thus influences the effectiveness of the educational intervention. In summary, these results emphasize the need for more in-depth DfAM education to encourage the use of both opportunistic and restrictive DfAM, so as to spur them to design concepts that are not only manufactured easily, but also better leverage the offerings of AM.
