Engineers are taught to design for reduced risk, they are comfortable designing for manufacturing processes with decades of proven success. Additive Manufacturing is proving disruptive while displacing traditional manufacturing. Improving performance and durability, delivering in shorter timeframes, and obtaining complex geometries. Engineers are enabled to design for function. There is no ‘plan b’ or ‘off-ramp’ to traditional fabrication. The risk of no alternate fabrication method is weighed against a superior and previously unmanufacturable product.
