Determining Design Properties for Metal Additive Manufacturing in the
Mobility Industry EPR2023004
As metal additive manufacturing (MAM), also known as "metal 3D printing,” moves
from prototype to low-rate and high-rate production for increasingly critical
applications for more industries, many product teams are tasked with determining
design properties for the first time in many years. Not only is it necessary to
determine basic material properties, but it is also necessary to accommodate new
geometries and design concepts as well. While some of the methods and approaches
are common to other product forms, others are unique to MAM.
Determining Design Properties for Metal Additive Manufacturing in the Mobility
Industry covers the challenges in determining design properties and provides a
comparison with existing technologies, along with an example and recommendations
for future work.
