    Project MOnACO (Manufacturing Of a large-scale AM Component) is a $1.1m research collaboration with General Electric Aviation et al. funded by the Clean Sky 2 program. The focus is to cut noise and emissions from the civil aerospace market using disruptive technologies. The aim is to converge design and manufacturing using the A.T.L.A.S machine which is currently the largest metal powder additive manufacturing of its kind (build size >1m). Autodesk is leading the design of the Turbine Centre Frame assembly using multiphysics Generative Design (Fusion 360), new product design extension for lattices and manufacturing simulation (Netfabb et al.) workflows geared toward large-scale additive manufacturing. The latest design is 34% lighter than its predecessor and the components have consolidated from 150 parts to 1 part. In This talk, we will be discussing how we applied Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) workflows using Autodesk Design & Make tools to solve tomorrow's problems.

    Key Learnings

    • Solve sustainability challenges in the aviation industry using Autodesk “Design and Make” tools.
    • Apply Generative Design for light weight structures
    • Implement Generative Design on Multiphysics problems
    • Identify how to apply design rules and guidelines for large scale additive manufacturing
