DfAM – is the process of creating the design of a part that is most suitable for Additive manufacturing.
It is a method that guides designers through structured, step by step design process for developing AM products.
Helps designers find possible solutions for product functions, suggest ideas to enhance, stimulate their creativity to find innovations, remove cognitive barriers & subconscious limitations in design.
Generally products were Designed for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), onset of AM has changed that, Conventional manufacturing constraints do not restrict product design anymore;
‘Design for Additive Manufacturing’ (DfAM) puts the emphasis back on functionality & efficiency of the part.
The main objectives of DfAM at product conceptualization stage is to,
Design for Additive Manufacturing
