Already completed AM210? Apply what you have learned to three common AM use cases: Replication, Adaptation, and Optimization. This series of courses includes 3 project-based courses. In these Project-based courses an instructor will grade assignments and provide feedback within 2-3 business days.    

This series of courses provides the key foundational knowledge to properly evaluate Additive Manufacturing (AM) as a potentially viable technology solution coupled with the in-depth technical knowledge necessary to efficiently shepherd AM parts from design, through post-processing and eventually into the market through three use cases: replication, adaptation, and optimization.  Each case study allows the learner to dive deeper into each use case and give the learner the opportunity to apply what they have learned by completing a variety of assessments and assignments.  Replicate covers a just-in-time solution: when you're in need of an exact copy or a legacy part that no longer is in production or not readily available. Adapt covers a second common AM use case when you aren’t able to start fresh with a new design and want to reduce cost, enhance performance, and excessive post-processing of your part. Optimize provides freedom to change part geometry: ensures significant performance improvements: parts that print quickly, cost-effectively and use material most efficiently.


By completing this learning path, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Leverage Replicate Adapt Optimize™ Framework
  • Ensure quality of a print through the use of industry best practices
  • Identify and leverage the additive manufacturing design techniques that are specific to the Replicate, Adapt, and Optimize use cases.


Who should attend?

  • Engineering teams at design and manufacturing firms, as well as individuals
  • Early to mid-career engineers, including design engineers, materials engineers, manufacturing engineers, and others with an interest in design for additive manufacturing with metals
  • Business Managers including directors of program management, directors of strategy/supply chain, financial analysts, or controllers

Course participants are expected to:

  • Have already successfully completed AM210: Design for Additive Manufacturing with Metals Course
  • Have access to CAD and know how to use it
  • Maintain a basic understanding of analysis tools (i.e., FEA, CFD, and GD&T methods)
  • Be familiar with traditional manufacturing processes (i.e., machining/milling, casting, and forging)
  • Possess basic knowledge of engineering and intellectual property ethics, such as the ASME Code of Ethics of Engineers
  • Ideally, have some experience with 3D printing and plastics/polymers (not required)
Course Outlines

Topics covered in this series include:

  • Design for additive manufacturing

The Design for Additive Manufacturing with Metals Cases Package includes 3 case study courses.


Chris Wentworth is a Senior Application Engineer at Stratasys and product development and Additive Manufacturing (AM) engineer. With over 25 years of experience in manufacturing, 15 of those working in AM, Chris brings a wealth of knowledge to this course and ASME. 

Over the years, he has worked with Fortune 500 companies to solve manufacturing problems. He has a proven record of building businesses and gaining customer trust.  Chris has spoken on Additive Manufacturing and Product Development at events and forums sponsored by UCI , USC and NIST .

As an ASME subject matter expert and developer of this course, Chris will be appearing in videos throughout to offer his insight and experience.
