Altair, RUAG and Morf3D are introducing a practical additive manufacturing course which will cover the entire end to end process from design to certification. The course covers a broad range of topics including basic design considerations, details of design, design validation, topology optimization, build constraints, post-processing, destructive and non-destructive testing, virtual and physical validation and verification.
The course is taught at two levels by Dr. Melissa Orme, Morf3D, Dr. Robert Yancey, Altair and Mr. Michael Gschweiti, RUAG Space; experts who have successfully designed, built, and certified Aerospace parts made by AM. Combined, this team has over 50 years of experience in Aerospace applications, with additive manufacturing and 3D printing. The Intermediate and Advanced Courses are 4.5 days and cover a lecture and hands on exercises from Design to Build using Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process. The Intermediate Course is intended for people with a basic design and analysis background and the Advanced Course is for experienced engineers in design and analysis methods.
“We have seen a great interest from companies to learn how to best utilize additive manufacturing,” says Dr. Yancey. “This course will provide participants a very practical view of 3D printing technology and how it can best be utilized.”
“At Morf3D our mission is to provide a sustainable eco-system that enables client proficiency in fully exploiting the benefits of additive manufacturing, and delivers innovative solutions that solve complex design and manufacturing challenges,” adds Ivan Madera, CEO of Morf3D. “Our facility is set up to produce parts but also to educate people and this course will help us accomplish that goal.”
