About this Webinar
The interconnection between sustainability and additive manufacturing (AM) has garnered significant attention in recent years. AM processes, such as selective laser melting (SLM) or electron beam melting (EBM), offer opportunities for reducing environmental impact and promoting resource efficiency. By minimizing material waste and enabling the creation of lightweight designs with optimized geometries, metal AM contributes to sustainable manufacturing practices. These advancements align with environmental responsibility, energy conservation, and waste reduction goals. In this webinar, we will explore how educators can effectively teach these concepts to engage students in the sustainable future of manufacturing.
What You Will Learn
- What pros and cons to discuss with students when considering metal AM as a relevant manufacturing route for sustainable design
- How to engage students in understanding and applying concepts like topology optimization and simplified life cycle analysis
- The ways educators can harness the power of digital tools like Ansys Discovery and Ansys Granta EduPack in courses
Who Should Attend
Engineering educators at the undergraduate level who are interested in incorporating AM industry applications and practical simulations into their courses while enhancing the learning of theory.
