How to Design for Additive Manufacturing (SLA)

Watch Now

Since the rules of additive manufacturing are very different from the rules of injection molding and machining, making the right design decisions for 3D printing can be challenging. By learning key design guidelines for stereolithography (SLA) additive manufacturing, you’ll be able to reduce trial and error steps, produce functional parts in less time, and save on material costs.

In this webinar, we’ll teach you essential print process physics and additive manufacturing material challenges. We’ll walk through a presentation packed with visual examples for SLA manufacturing design guidelines and five methods to design for assembly.

What you will learn:

  • How to optimize the design of an example part to save $500 in material costs, 80 hours of machine time, and manual labor time.
  • Design guidelines for holes, lattices, overhangs, fins, ribs, and nesting.
  • How to avoid print failures related to adhesion, warping, lack of support structures, and more.
  • How the rules of product development and manufacturing change without tooling costs.
