Jennifer Bracken, Penn State University

This presentation will discuss a worksheet tool for designing for metal powder bed fusion (PBF) processes.  Using the tool, designers can easily gauge how suitable a design will be for PBF from a geometric standpoint. They can also compare suitability of existing designs to select suitable candidate parts to print with PBF.

Key Takeaways

  • Understanding how to use the GAPS worksheet tool
  • Understanding the impact of design geometry on PBF printing success
  • Ability to quickly distribute key PBF knowledge to teams
