Abstract

The proliferation of additive manufacturing technologies has inspired its use at different scales for both prototyping and production. Moreover, the accessibility of inexpensive machines has enabled design at the end-user level. However, the unique capabilities of these layer-based manufacturing processes are often underutilized or even unexplored. In this work, the authors leverage a crowdsourced repository of additive manufacturing design data to extract useful design principles for additive manufacturing. Herein, 23 design principles are discussed from said extraction. Many of the 23 principles are found throughout the literature. These lend validity to those that are novel and not yet existing in literature. It is found that the 23 principles range in specificity in how they relate to the manufacturing process The levels of specificity from most general to specific include (i) design for manufacturing, (ii) design for digital manufacturing, (iii) design for additive manufacturing, and (iv) design for fused filament fabrication. The principle, when implements can help designers to fully leverage the capabilities of additive manufacturing technologies.
