Additive manufacturing turns design efficiency on its head

Leslie's Blog

Tyler Reid, Manufacturing Application Manager, GoEngineer. Engineers are normally introduced to the concept of design for manufacture (DFM) while in school. But the reality is that the majority of engineers don’t actually learn how to design for manufacture until they are on the job. Additive manufacturing, however, turns this scenario completely around by encouraging part complexity: pockets and holes suddenly become time-savers!
