The additive manufacturing technology allows for new forms and geometric entities. There are currently no methods / design tools to integrate fully the potential of these means of production. PhD candidate:Thanh Hoang VO Université Grenoble-Alpes, 2013 PhD supervisors: Frédéric VIGNAT, FrançoisVILLENEUVE
Do a literature review on the existing design process for the manufacture of parts using additive technology.
To develop case studies with EBM technology that allow us to propose a model of the design process of parts and / or mechanisms. From this process, propose the rules and principles of design of parts and / or mechanisms for additive manufacturing process.
Requestionner the "customer needs" under this new technology. Define design rules for additive manufacturing. Formalize a design method suitable for this technology.
