The aim of this specialized course is to provide a better understanding of additive manufacturing and how best to design for it. It is also to give an insight to where this technology will take us in the future.
This is an intensive 3-day design for additive manufacturing (AM) course which includes a lot of practical examples of the implementation of additive manufacturing. The course is divided into morning and afternoon sessions, with the morning covering theoretical aspects of AM and design for AM (DfAM). The afternoons include hands-on exercises that will put the theory into practice. Timing of the presentations and hands-on will be flexible, depending on the knowledge and experience of the participants. See an overview of the course schedule.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This is a specialized course for engineers and designers who will be designing parts for AM and who have some basic experience of CAD. The course contains many hands-on practical exercises in DfAM, so these will be done in CAD and then 3D printed during the course.
The course will be useful both for engineers that are new to AM, but also to engineers who need more specialized knowledge in terms of designing for AM. It will also be useful to technical and managerial personnel in industry with an interest in AM and who wish to gain a better understanding of AM and trends in the field.
Olaf Diegel is a professor in Product Development at the Department for Product Development at Lund University since 2014. He was born in New Zealand, but has spent much of his life in the USA, Canada, South Africa and Japan. He is heavily involved in all aspects of product development and is widely published in the areas of AM and rapid product development.
His main area of interest is in additive manufacturing and its use in the reduction of the product development cycle. Other areas of expertise include Mechatronics, Rapid Product Development, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Flexible manufacturing systems, Manufacturing technologies and Design for Assembly/Manufacturing.
