Computational Design for Manufacturing: Creating a Pipeline for the Future of Production
Building NE 48-416
Over the next few decades, we are going to transition to a new economy where highly complex, customizable products are manufactured on demand by flexible robotic systems. This change is already underway in a number of fields. 3D printers are revolutionizing production of metal parts in consumer, aerospace, automotive, and medical industries. Manufacturing electronics on flexible substrates opens the door to a whole new range of products for consumer electronics and medical diagnostics. Overall, these new machines enable batch-one manufacturing of products that have unprecedented complexity.
This course gives an introduction to developing intelligent design and manufacturing workflows. Participants will be given an overview of the advanced manufacturing hardware, methods for creating customizable design templates, and virtual product testing. The course will cover performance-driven and generative design workflows that automatically translate functional specifications of objects to manufacturable designs. The course will introduce participants to AI/machine learning methods that allow design automation and customization. The course will showcase how AI methods can be used in a manufacturing workflow for automated inspections and improved performance.
