Simulation-Driven Design and the Role of Optimization in Design for Additive Manufacturing
Additive manufacturing (AM) provides exceptional design flexibility, enabling the manufacture of parts with shapes and functions not viable with traditional manufacturing processes. The two paradigms aiming to leverage computational methods to design AM parts imbuing the design-for-additive-manufacturing (DFAM) principles are design optimization (DO) and simulation-driven design (SDD). In line with the adoption of AM processes by industry and extensive research efforts in the research community, this article focuses on powder-bed fusion for metal AM and material extrusion for polymer AM. It includes detailed sections on SDD and DO as well as three case studies on the adoption of SDD, DO, and artificial-intelligence-based DFAM in real-life engineering applications, highlighting the benefits of these methods for the wider adoption of AM in the manufacturing industry.
