Design for Additive Manufacturing,
Edition 1
By Martin Leary

Publication Date: 04 Dec 2019

Design for Additive Manufacturing is a complete guide to design tools for the manufacturing requirements of AM and how they can enable the optimization of process and product parameters for the reduction of manufacturing costs and effort. This timely synopsis of state-of-the-art design tools for AM brings the reader right up-to-date on the latest methods from both academia and industry. Tools for both metallic and polymeric AM technologies are presented and critically reviewed, along with their manufacturing attributes. Commercial applications of AM are also explained with case studies from a range of industries, thus demonstrating best-practice in AM design.

Key Features

  • Covers all the commonly used tools for designing for additive manufacturing, as well as descriptions of important emerging technologies
  • Provides systematic methods for optimizing AM process selection for specific production requirement
  • Addresses design tools for both metallic and polymeric AM technologies
  • Includes commercially relevant case studies that showcase best-practice in AM design, including the biomedical, aerospace, defense and automotive sectors
