    Additive manufacturing—3D printing—is disrupting the manufacturing industry. It gives us the capability to create unique and efficient designs that were never possible before. One unique design method you can use to optimize designs is through part consolidation, or by taking a multipiece assembly and combining and merging the parts to create a single part with no assembly required. This class will focus on the various reasons and use cases to apply part consolidation, as well as general design practices you can use to successfully optimize a part using part consolidation.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover how part consolidation can help optimize a design
    • Learn how to recognize when to apply part consolidation methods
    • Discover various ways and methods to consolidate parts
    • Learn how to apply part consolidation methods to create an optimized design fit for 3D printing
