Additive manufacturing has many uses in the automotive design studio. From hard parts with high-end finishing to polished lenses to quick geometry mock-ups, there is an advantage to utilizing additive manufacturing. AM technologies enhance the capabilities of the design studio by providing a quick and efficient way to bring ideas and geometries to life. Not only do AM parts stand on their own, but they also add great value to traditional design methods and technologies.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the automotive design process.
- Describe specific use cases for AM parts in the design studio.
- Understand how to evaluate if a part should be produced using AM or another manufacturing method.
