Short Abstract:

Computer Aided Design (CAD) software facilitates the creation of 3D models, which can be the starting geometry for running a finite element analysis or directly fabricating a part with additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. An effective design takes into account multiples aspects, such as materials properties and the fabrication technologies, which have to be considered since the drawing phase. In particular, AM technologies have reduced both the design constrains and the prototyping costs, becoming an enabling tool for many engineering areas.
Indeed, the Course aims at providing Information Engineers with fundamentals of computer aided design optimized for AM, through frontal lessons and practical CAD sessions.

Course Contents in brief:

  1. Fundamentals of AM technologies (4h)
  2. The role of engineering drawing; from manual sketch and to computer aided design (CAD) (4h)
  3. Use of CAD software: part design and assembling (8h)
  4. Design for Fused Deposition Modelling (theory and practice) (4h)
  5. Design for Stereolithography (theory and practice) (4h)
