Learn how to design for additive manufacturing

  • Design parts suitable for Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF)
  • Reduce cost per part through smart design
  • Optimize your application for AM
  • Start thinking additively

    Understand the importance of good design

    Additive manufacturing is one of the most innovative and creative industrial technologies of the 21st century, however, there are rules one needs to follow to ensure the success of each part. 

    An educated and creative designer can greatly contribute to decreasing the consumption of powder, reducing build time and lowering the overall cost-per-part, making them a vital part of the team. 
    In this 3D printing online class, you will learn of the possibilities and limitations in 3D printing, and how to apply this knowledge to design viable yet innovative parts and progress your career in additive manufacturing. 
    You will explore the entire process chain from design through to build and application, as well as the optimisation and orientation stages. Hands-on experience of the additive manufacturing process chain will give you vital real world experience to deepen your knowledge. 


    Learn technical design guidelines

    Designing 3D printed parts for real world use requires an in-depth knowledge of certain methodologies and guidelines and this 3D printing course will cover everything you need to know to get started. 

    First, you will learn the basics of the design workflow, covering the entire process from start to finish. You will become familiar with the fundamentals and feel confident knowing where to begin in the design process and how to proceed following a step-by-step process. 

    This additive manufacturing module takes you deeper into the technical guidelines that EOS uses in real world examples. Explore the reasons we require such guidelines and become proficient in identifying which designs meet the guidelines and how to adjust a design to ensure it meets the relevant EOS standards. 


    Create innovative solutions 

    You will study the AM Design Thinking methodology and apply this framework to your own designs, helping you to adopt flexible thinking, challenge your assumptions and turn design problems into opportunities. This 3D printing course teaches you the correct procedure and guidelines but also encourages you to think outside the box and create innovative solutions. 

    Observe real world design examples and learn about innovative methods such as bionics and lightweight. 
    Gain vital hands-on experience applying AM designs in practical exercises, encouraging you to test out your new knowledge and giving you opportunity to practice the nuances of additive manufacturing design before taking your skills back to the workplace.
