Metal additive manufacturing’s proliferation in many different industries cannot be ignored. Learning about the process, from design to certification, is essential to companies that want to expand into 3D metal printing.
A new course from Altair, RUAG, and Morf3D targets companies that want to broaden their horizons on the topic.
The course is being offered at two levels – intermediate and advanced – and will be taught by Melissa Orme of Morf3D, Robert Yancey of Altair, and Michael Gschweiti of RUAG Space, three experts who have designed, built, and certified aerospace parts made by additive manufacturing. The instructors have a combined 50 years of experience in aerospace applications with additive manufacturing and 3D printing.
The classes cover a broad range of topics, including basic design considerations, the details of design, design validation, topology optimization, build constraints, post-processing, destructive and non-destructive testing, virtual and physical validation, and verification.
Both courses span 4.5 days and include a lecture and hands-on exercises. The intermediate course is intended for people with a basic design and analysis background. The advanced class is geared toward experienced engineers.
“We have seen a great interest from companies to learn how to best utilize additive manufacturing,” said Yancey. “This course will provide participants a very practical view of 3D printing technology and how it can best be utilized.”
The classes start Oct. 24 and will be held at Morf3D’s El Segundo, Calif., headquarters.
