Lightweighting with Cellular Materials: Insights from Nature
Can cellular materials serve as a design solution for achieving lightweighting of engineering structures? Let’s listen to what nature has to say.
Elevating Design and Cutting Costs – Structural Lightweighting
Brought to life by metal additive manufacturing processes, part design has reached new heights. Fueled by computational modeling and the ability to synthesize data and leverage it within a design, coupled with technology…
Design for Additive Manufacturing: Turning the Hype into a Reality
What allows for free complexity in designing for additive manufacturing (DfAM) also creates limitations. DfAM involves balancing the opportunistic aspects of an AM process against its limitations and restrictions. Read below as I…
Making Design for Metal Powder Bed Fusion Accessible with the GAPS Worksheet
Making an accurate prediction if your component is suitable for AM at the beginning of the design phase can save you time, money, and material. To help with that researchers at Penn State…
Design for Metrology in Additive Manufacturing
Designing for AM, in general, has its challenges. One challenge is ensuring that your designs will be measurable using X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT). Below, I briefly go over this and invite you to…
Above and Beyond Traditional Structures for Liquid Cooling
In the next 10 years, data centers are projected to consume 8% of the global supply of energy with half of that being used by the cooling system alone. Read below to see…
Designing Heat Exchangers for Additive Manufacturing
Our Metal DfAM eSeries kicks off week 2 with a focus on Heat Exchangers. A majority of the focus on Triply Periodic Minimal Surfaces (TMPS) and their applicability.
