This guide is applicable during the design of all types of products, devices, systems, components, or parts that are to be fabricated by any type of additive manufacturing (AM) system. Note that this document is meant to serve primarily as guidance and best practices when using AM in product design. These guidelines help determine which design considerations can be utilized and are of importance.
Additive manufacturing differs from other manufacturing processes for several reasons and these differences lead to unique design opportunities and freedoms that should be highlighted in a new standard.
