Wohlers Associates, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA, part of ASTM International, has partnered with America Makes, headquartered in Youngstown, Ohio, to offer a three-day Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) course which will take place at America Makes’ headquarters July 18–20, 2022.

“AM offers fascinating opportunities for new types of products and businesses,” stated Terry Wohlers, head of advisory services and market intelligence at Wohlers Associates. “Rethinking methods of design, coupled with understanding the true capabilities of AM, presents immeasurable options for organisations of all sizes.”

Course presentations, discussions, and hands-on exercises cover the economics of Additive Manufacturing, reducing the need for expensive support material, and consolidating many parts into one. The course covers topology optimisation, which is letting mathematics decide where to place material to optimise the strength-to-weight ratio.

The course also covers lattice/mesh structures, DfAM rules and guidelines, and the modelling and simulation of distortion caused by heat. The course includes considerations for metal, polymer, and composite materials and the creation of custom products. Wohlers will assist the lead instructor and DfAM expert Olaf Diegel with the three-day course.

“America Makes is excited to host this upcoming Wohlers Associates training in our Youngstown facility,” commented Josh Cramer, education and workforce development director at America Makes. “Being able to support best practices from our members is a key component of our overall education and workforce development strategy. We are dedicated to a ‘K through Grey’ mission, ensuring we are driving in career pathways for all learners, including those who are reskilling or upskilling in our industry. America Makes has a rich library of programmes and content, but it is even richer when collaborating with member programmes and offerings.”

Course attendees will also receive a copy of Wohlers Report 2022. Further information about the course is available here.
