Do you want to learn about the Additive Manufacturing challenges (and sometimes failures) in producing functional parts with Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) machines? Navigating through the complexity of working with the materials characteristics and L-PBF technology to produce a viable, functional part is a critical component in Metal 3D Printing. Learn how to interpret process-inherent features on printed parts and understand how they relate to mechanical properties.
Are you curious about the challenges in producing functional parts with additive manufacturing? Do you want to learn about producing parts with L-PBF machines? Navigating and working with metal materials to produce viable, functional parts with L-PBF technology is a critical component in Metal AM. In this course you will learn how to interpret process-inherent features on printed parts and understand how they relate to mechanical properties.
This Materials Properties course provides an introduction to material properties for L-PBF parts. It covers the range of material properties observed, the variability in material properties, how and why this variability exists, and methods to account for this variability. 

By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Correlate how powders for L-PBF are produced and analyze their distinct features.
  • Discover the effects of microstructure and surface roughness on mechanical integrity.
  • Contrast the influence of the L-PBF process on the microstructure and surface roughness of parts.
  • Analyze how the microstructure L-PBF part can be changed in post-processing.
  • Describe the concept of the L-PBF process, its unique thermal history, and aptly interpret material data.
  • Explain the workflow for developing process parameters for L-PBF materials.

Who should attend:
Engineering teams at design and manufacturing firms, as well as individuals. This course was designed for early to mid-career engineers, including design engineers, materials engineers, manufacturing engineers, and others with an interest in design for additive manufacturing with metals with a focus on laser powder-bed fusion.
At the end of the course, a final exam will assess learners' knowledge through real world problems evaluating their understanding and applicable knowledge of course material.
