Design For Additive Manufacturing @ Advanced Manufacturing Precinct RMIT University
Dec 5 @ 8:00 am – Dec 7 @ 5:00 pm

You are invited to attend a special three-day course on design for additive manufacturing (DfAM). Topics covered in the training include the consolidation of many parts into one and methods to reduce material and weight, such as topology optimization and lattice/mesh structures. It includes best practices and a wealth of DfAM guidelines. Participants will gain valuable hands-on experience by designing real parts and building them on industrial AM equipment.

Benefits of DfAM 
The images show a hydraulic manifold for Atlas Copco mining equipment. The top version is a conventionally machined manifold with 12 nozzles that must be installed. The bottom version was redesigned for and produced by additive manufacturing. The AM version reduced weight by 91% and consolidated 13 parts into one, resulting in lower assembly cost, less weight and scrap, and the elimination of potential leakage points. Learn how to design these and many other types of parts in this special DfAM course.

You will…
• Become familiar with DfAM guidelines and best practices
• Design, redesign, and optimize products
• Use your favorite design software (if you are a CAD user)
• Gain experience with best-in-class DfAM software such as Inspire from solidThinking and the lattice-structure capabilities in Magics from Materialise

Who should attend…
The DfAM course is targeted at designers, engineers, and managers wanting to learn how to design parts that fully benefit from additive manufacturing. It is ideal for those involved in aerospace, medical, motor sports, energy/power, industrial machinery, automotive, and consumer products.

Competing in today’s increasingly digitalised world and winning in the fourth industrial revolution requires global context and market access, entrepreneurial leadership, a culture of innovation and the adoption of new emerging technologies. But above all, it requires a different set of thinking.

Whether you are new to digital manufacturing or well on the journey, the futuremapTM workshop will give you valuable insights into the current state of your business and then have you consider where you aspire to be, and by when.

Interactive and packed with industry examples, the workshop is intended specifically for you if you are a manufacturing business owner or senior executive managing and manufacturing business owner, to help you

• think differently about the opportunities and challenges of digital manufacturing
• map the current state of your business with respect to capabilities and characteristics vital for future competitiveness and success, and compare this to where you aspire to be in two years from now;
• understand the primary gaps between your current state and your aspirations, to assist you to develop your key areas of focus and potential investment; and
• understand where assistance may be sought to help you on your transition to digital manufacturing.

Prepare to be inspired, learn, and grow as you spend the workshop assessing and mapping your business’ manufacturing capabilities and characteristics using futuremapTM, a business diagnostic tool developed by IMCRC, and deployed in collaboration with the AMGC and the Entrepreneurs’ Programme.
