dc.description.abstractDesign for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) is a unique conceptual way to adapt a part for Additive Manufacturing (AM). While some of the choices made in DfAM become second nature to seasoned AM designers, inexperienced designers may not know the nuances involved in what is still a developing manufacturing technology. Topology Optimization (TO) in particular tends to create organic shapes that may not be immediately conducive to printing through AM. This paper proposes a comprehensive workflow tool to guide a designer, regardless of their experience, through the decision-making process inherent to DfAM. The guide helps the designer manually edit a legacy tooling design into a topologically optimized part that is readily manufacturable through AM. Discussion of a relevant case study follows the outline of the design tool to exemplify its use.
