Additive Manufacturing: Short Run Production
Additive Manufacturing: Short Run Production is an Intermediate level study on CAD, created by an expert, Joan Horvath. This study is an absolute foundation for a person who needs to excel in his/her CAD skills. It gives you a thorough grip on CAD, Manufacturing, Prototyping, Web, Product Design, CAD, Manufacturing, Prototyping, Web and Product Design.
As an alternative to traditional manufacturing techniques such as injection molding, additive manufacturing becomes an attractive option at quantities up to 1,000 units or even more. It can also function as a backup for making bridge parts before the regular ones are available in a manufacturing plant. This course discusses some of the key advantages of additive manufacturing, including part number reduction and thus reduced assembly time; increased reliability; backup capability in case of a part shortage; and possibly lower tooling costs. Instructors Rich Cameron and Joan Horvath also review some of the real-world manufacturing use cases where additive is cost effective and suggest which materials (filament, liquid resin, or powder) might make the most sense for your company and product.
