AbstractThis course is focusing on design, development and innovation with Additive Manufacturing (AM) production technologies. Part of the course is a project, where students design and produce their own functional AM part in metal, with selective laser melting (SLM). The different designs of the students will be analyzed and an the design will be optimized.
ObjectiveTo provide a fundamental knowledge of Additive Manufacturing (AM) and generate experience knowledge in the field of the design for AM (DfAM), product development and value creation with AM.
ContentParallel to the lectures the students design SLM prototypes in a project. Further, the prototypes going to be manufactured and possible optimizations will be discussed in the group.
The cours is addressing the following topics:
- AM-Processes including SLM, SLS and FDM
- AM-Principles
- Autofab-Introduction
- AM-Guidelines
- Value added chain of AM
- AM-Quality management
- Microstructures and materials for AM
- Industry cases of AM
Lecture notesScript and handouts are available in PDF-format.
