Design for Manufacturing

Design is the primary step for any manufacturing activity. Proper design with manufacturing knowledge shortens the product development life cycle. Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) is typically meant for designers to eliminate manufacturing difficulties and minimize manufacturing, assembly and logistics costs in conventional manufacturing methods by tailoring the design. Whereas, for Additive Manufacturing (AM), often simply called 3D printing, provides nearly unrestricted freedom to design parts. It offers designers and manufacturers the ability to produce shapes and designs that would be impossible to produce using conventional manufacturing technologies such as molding or machining. Designing products for layer based Additive Manufacturing (AM) is gaining importance as AM opens-up new possibilities for optimized design.
