Fundamentals of AM Design

UL’s technical training curriculum was developed collaboratively with industry leading adopters and AM technical subject matter experts. The focus of UL’s technical design training is to impart a better understanding of how to fully capture the benefits of AM through effective design techniques. The training will cover the application of DFMA principles to AM, the development of robust DFX strategies, the execution of the strategies using simulations, & the readying of design files for additive manufacturing.


  • Gain a working knowledge of engineering design best practices for AM
  • Understand how to build designs that are manufacturable, functional and compliant
  • Understand how to optimize AM design factors such as supply chain, environment, and human factors and build a design that meets your business requirements
