Design for Additive Manufacturing for Industrial Design
Most Design for Additive Manufacturing research and case studies focus on pure engineering problems and product performance. Less so on aesthetics, ergonomics, or design theory…
In this DfAM series, we explore additive manufacturing in the context of Industrial Design. Expert 3D printing practitioners describe how they used additive manufacturing to create form for aesthetics and tactile response.
The focus is on experimental, computational, and generative design. We see how these tools can aid ideation and abstract approaches that extend the way we think about products as holistic objects that blend between functions — not just an assembly of parts.
