What You will Learn
This module allows participants to learn about the wide range of additive manufacturing technologies to fabricate metallic, polymeric and ceramic components. Participants gain understanding of the entire process flow (pre- and post-processing) that is critical for additive manufactured components. With the guidance of industrial experts in additive manufacturing, participants receive hands-on experience on reverse engineering and learn to conduct computational analysis and topology optimisation for additive manufacturing.
Contents covered in this module include:
- Background: history, evolution, distinction between AM and Subtractive Manufacturing (SM); value-add of AM with traditional precision manufacturing processes for component manufacturing
- Fundamentals and characteristics of key AM processes
- Materials and equipment systems for AM
- Post-processes and quality assessment of AM parts
- Print file preparation and optimised support structure placement
- Reverse engineering and design for additive manufacturing (DfAM)
- AM international standards, qualification, workplace safety and health (WSH) regulations
- Industrial applications and case studies of additive manufactured components
- Principles of computational analysis and fundamentals of topology optimisation for AM
- Project work on virtual design and simulation of components for AM
