Overview

The implications of additive manufacturing (AM) span the complete product life-cycle, from concept-stage design to service part fulfillment. Recent advances, including industrially viable high-speed AM processes, improved materials, and optimization software, now enable AM to be considered hand-in-hand with conventional production technologies. Moreover, the unprecedented design flexibility of AM allows us to invent products with new levels of performance, and to envision digitally-driven manufacturing systems that achieve rapid, responsive production with reduced cost and risk.

This fast-paced five-day course provides learners with a comprehensive understanding of AM technology, its applications, and its implications both now and in the future.
