Wohlers Associates, Inc. takes its course on design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) to Hamburg, Germany, June 13-14, 2019. The two-day course is supported by Airbus and ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research and hosted by ZAL. It will offer designers, engineers and managers an opportunity to learn and practice methods and strategies that maximize the benefits of AM.

Wohlers Associates, publisher of the popular Wohlers Report, identifies DfAM as one of the key barriers to companies adopting AM or 3D printing. Wohlers Associates' instructor and world-renowned DfAM expert Dr. Olaf Diegel will lead the course. The company has conducted this highly rated course in Australia, Belgium, Canada, South Africa and the U.S.


Topics covered in the training include the consolidation of many parts into one and methods to reduce material and weight, such as topology optimization and lattice/mesh structures. It covers ways to reduce expensive support material to minimize pre- and post-processing of parts. The course includes design considerations pertinent to all methods of polymer and metal AM and includes many best practices and DfAM guidelines. Participants will gain valuable hands-on experience by designing industrial parts and building them on AM equipment during the course.

Course participants will also receive a tour of the ZAL TechCenter, gaining a window into the benefits and implementation of AM in the aerospace industry. Details on the course can be found here.
