Additive Manufacturing has re-written many rules of product and part design. It has helped to improve part performance, cost of parts, and sustainability, all via design innovation. Engineers have the ability to creatively re-invent manufacturing from the ground up. Given this new freedom in the design process, what is the best way for an organization to capitalize and exploit the possibilities? In this episode, Founder and CEO of the engineering software company, nTopology, Brad Rothenberg, shares the key elements to unlock the full potential of 3D printing. He discusses the ability of software to re-shape the future of product design, the innovative tools that allow designers to replace grunt work with creativity, and what not to do when designing products for additive manufacturing. The Additive Snack Podcast is brought to you by EOS. Key Takeaways: [1:01] How nTopology’s engineering software fills the void in additive manufacturing design tools left by traditional manufacturing systems. [5:58] The creative role of the human engineer in the design process of additive manufacturing. [11:24] What not to do when creating products using additive manufacturing. [20:03] Brad Rothenberg shares a fascinating example of how new design tools and human creativity developed an application for the airforce that would not have been possible in the past. [24:23] Tips for engineers to accelerate design and engineering efforts. [27:22] Software allows engineers to build a re-usable knowledge base of design capabilities. [29:43] Brad shares his thoughts on where additive manufacturing will be in 5 years and how engineers can leverage their expertise. Bradley Rothenberg is the founder and CEO of nTopology, an advanced software company based in New York City that focuses on enabling engineers to design, manufacture and ship high-performance products in the least amount of time. nTopology’s breakthrough computational-modeling technology unifies geometry and simulation results into finely tuned manufacturing models, supporting engineers as they collaborate to develop lightweight, optimized parts with functional requirements built right in. Bradley studied architecture at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and has been developing computational design tools for advanced manufacturing for the last 10-plus years.
