This unit explores how products can be designed to exploit the key features of Additive Manufacturing (AM). The layer-based manufacturing approach used in AM makes it possible to create products that are somewhat independent of their geometric complexity. It is therefore possible to create parts that have internal, bespoke, mathematically defined and topology optimised features without concern over the difficulties of manufacture. Furthermore, it is possible to build parts with multiple material functionality that can exhibit different mechanical, thermal, electrical or other properties but built in a single stage. This unit will consider some of the techniques that can be applied to exploit these features as well as some of the outcomes that can be achieved using design for AM.
