In this course, the student gains expertise in Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies and the use of applicable AM computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing software tools. Additionally, Design for AM, including topics such as part integration, conformal cooling, and topological optimization, is introduced and applied. The impact of AM on traditional business and manufacturing processes is discussed and analyzed. The student applies all of this knowledge to practical problems and produces actual AM components.
