Determining the suitability of parts for AM processes is sometimes challenging, especially for those who are new to the Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies. Selecting a suitable part or a part family is the first step towards integrating additive manufacturing into an existing manufacturing ecosystem or adapting AM as a new business. An appropriate selection of parts is crucial to demonstrate a successful and sustainable business case. Different factors need to be considered in selecting parts that are feasible to be produced using AM technology. Currently, these considerations are not based on accepted standards or methodologies, and instead are often based on individual judgments derived from personal experiences.
This webinar will describe a framework developed by John Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) for determining the suitability of parts for AM. The framework will be demonstrated on several example parts with various suitability for AM. Legal considerations will also be briefly described.
This OnDemand webinar will take approximately 1 hour to complete.
After completing this webinar, the attendees will achieve the following:
