Abstract

Additive manufacturing (AM) technology is enabling a platform to produce parts with enhanced shape complexity. Design engineers are exploiting this capability to produce high performance functional parts. The current top-down approach to design for AM requires the designer to develop a design model in CAD software and then use optimization tools to adapt the design for the AM technology, however this approach neglects a number of desired criteria. This paper proposes an alternative bottom-up design framework for a new type of CAD tool which combines the knowledge required to design a part with evolutionary programming in order to design parts specifically for the AM platform.
