Learn more about our for Additive Manufacturing with Metals Learning Path.

Additive Manufacturing with metals is becoming more and more relevant in the production of products, parts and components. One of the most important of today's metal AM technologies is the Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) process. The fast development of the L-PBF process offers new opportunities for various industries. ASME’s AM Manufacturability online training course will walk you through the process parameters and design constraints of the metal L-PBF process.

This course is an interactive, self-study course in which engineers and managers will work through the L-PBF technology, and what needs to be considered to complete a successful print. Engineers and managers will learn about design restrictions, technology limitations, and support structure design. The course will focus on the success of manufacturability within the context of ASME's Replicate Adapt Optimize™ methodology. 

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

  • Evaluate a part design for manufacturability. 
  • Identify the sequence of the L-PBF process.
  • Assess the risks of an L-PBF build job. 
  • Classify functional support structures. 
  • Differentiate the L-PBF process chain from conventional manufacturing process chains.

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.

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.
