Design for Additive Manufacturing

Decades in the making, additive manufacturing is moving to the forefront of innovation as emerging capabilities, advanced materials and lower-cost alternatives position the technology as a compelling addition to mainstream production practices. 

For additive manufacturing to be a catalyst for true innovation, engineers will need to venture outside the rules of traditional assessment frameworks and understand AM’s strengths, design constraints and trade-offs.

AM is poised to be a crucial tool for transforming design practices. Yet without the right AM mindset and tools, engineering organizations will reap only partial benefits and miss out on the opportunity for competitive differentiation.
