International Journal of Rapid Manufacturing (IJRAPIDM), Vol. 7, No. 2/3, 2018

Abstract: Contemporary design for additive manufacture (AM) encounters a multitude of variables including multiple disciplines, technological disparities, and rigid and linear workflows. This paper presents a novel design workflow to facilitate collaboration, and development of design geometry that is enriched with manufacturing related information. The paper highlights adaptability of the proposed workflow to additive manufacturing via case studies. Lastly, it also outlines the benefits of implementing fabrication-aware geometry, early prototyping and validation methods as well as extending the collaboration period between collaborators in a multi-author design project.
