August 22, 2019: Intro to Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) Webinar

Additive Manufacturing (AM), once thought of as a technology purely for rapid prototyping, is increasingly being used by manufacturers to produce tooling and end use parts.

The design freedom provided by AM is allowing businesses to produce highly-customized and intricate parts that are unattainable or impractical with conventional manufacturing processes. However, AM requires a different mindset when it comes to design and it is important for manufacturers to learn Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) guidelines in order to take full advantage of AM’s unique capabilities.

Co-hosted by the Minnesota Precision Manufacturing Association (MPMA), join AdvancedTek application engineer David Kadlec Thursday, August 22nd at 10:00 AM as he covers:

  • Basic AM principles,
  • Basic drivers of AM part cost,
  • When it makes sense to use AM,
  • and basic design principles for AM.

This webinar is open to both members and non-members of the MPMA .

Date: Thursday, August 22, 2019

Time: 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Cost: $10 for members and nonmembers (proceeds go to MPMA’s Education Foundation)

Register for the webinar on MPMA’s website.
