Course Overview

Additive Manufacturing, commonly known as 3D Printing, is the formal term defined under ASTM F2792 – 12a. Today 3D printing is becoming an important advanced manufacturing technique that complements existing fabrication processes in manufacturing. The main topics covered in this course include principles and development of Metal Additive Manufacturing, design guidelines for Additive Manufacturing (ISO/ASTM 52911-2), design of support structures, generalised process chain, process selection guidelines, pre-processing software, post processing methods and the laser-based powder bed.

Entry Requirements

Participants should have basic technical domain knowledge related background.

Who Should Attend

Individuals who would like to have a hands-on experience in learning about CAD design for Additive Manufacturing and metal printing.
