Additive Manufacturing

In this lecture, we progress an example model from simulation results to an additively manufactured and optimized part. We use Fusion 360, Print Studio, and Netfabb to introduce advanced additive techniques for further optimization.

Lesson 1: Introducing the Design Problem

In this lesson, we lay out the problem statement in relation to the larger scope of the project. We refer to the simulation results derived from Fusion 360 as a basis for the additive optimizations to be made later.

Lesson 2: 3D Printing Basics

In this lesson, we use the Mesh workspace to improve the mesh, before taking that to Print Studio. Along the way, we discuss important considerations such as print orientation, support structure, and more.

Lesson 3: Intro to Netfabb

In this lesson, we explore Netfabb, a professional-grade, additive manufacturing product. It has tools that help streamline your additive workflow and quickly get from a 3D model to successfully printed parts.

Lesson 4: Printing with Netfabb

In this lesson, we use Netfabb to prepare the optimized steering knuckle for printing. We import the model to Netfabb, orient it, add supports, add filling, and slice the model.

Lesson 5: Lattice Structures

In the final lesson, we use another latticing to reduce the mass of this part. We use Fusion 360 to make both skins and cavities on the original design, which defines the regions where lattices are either added or prevented.
