CAD and Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing, also commonly known as 3D Printing is the formal term defined under ASTM F2792 – 12a. Today 3D printing is becoming an important manufacturing technique that complements existing manufacturing processes. This emerging technology is said to create a paradigm shift in methods and pace of production. In this course, the main topics covered include principles and development of Metal Additive Manufacturing, design guideline for Additive Manufacturing (ISO/ASTM 52911-2), design of support structure, generalized process chain, process selection guidelines, pre-processing software, post processing methods and Laser based Powder Bed. As a bonus, future directions of Additive Manufacturing will be discussed in detail.

This course focuses on Focus on Metal 3D printing.
