ME 353: Design for Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing and the associated emergence of algorithmic CAD software are changing the landscape for design engineers. The next generation of software is not solely based on geometry, but asks engineers to specify the desired performance parameters of their solution and leaves it up to the computer to create a geometry that optimizes that solution. Usually such geometries would be impossibly expensive or impossible to produce, but as additive manufacturing technologies and tools advance, we are approaching a world in which there will be virtually no geometric barriers associated with manufacturing cost.
