Compared to conventional (=subtractive) manufacturing technology, additive manufacturing (AM) can bring multiple advantages, such as: freedom of shape, topology optimization, customized products, integration of parts, variable part density, … In practice  however these opportunities are largely unknown and therefore not often used. One of the reasons for this is that AM requires a different approach than conventional manufacturing technology, while most design engineers are educated in a traditional way. Additional  education in the field of AM is a must. This presentation will show you a number of successful  examples of redesigned parts for AM for your inspiration.
