nTopology to host webinar series on design for metal Additive Manufacturing

July 27, 2020

Engineering software company nTopology Inc., headquartered in New York City, New York, USA, is hosting a series of webinars on Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) for metal AM. A total of four seminars will be held, covering medical devices (August 4), heat exchangers (August 11), design constraints (August 18) and lightweighting (August 25).

During the webinars, experts in the field of DfAM will discuss applications for metal Additive Manufacturing, and the constant trade-off between engineering requirements and the need to design for the manufacturing process.

“Oftentimes, we hear 3D printing discussed in terms of ‘design freedom’ and ‘complexity is free’ but the reality is that constraints can bring these lofty ideas to a grinding halt,” explains nTopology. “Our presenters aim to inspire and educate those exploring the ‘design freedoms’ offered by AM while simultaneously addressing the inherent design constraints of AM processes.”

The seminars will be presented by:
