This paper introduces a new method for early stages of Design For Additive Manufacturing. It aims at supporting designers in the generation of creative concepts in AM. A review of current DFAM methods, shows that some of them already integrate creative approaches based on the use of examples. However, a comparison of these methods highlights that the generated concepts are only partially creative. We then assert that a method based on an association between intra-domain examples and far-domain examples as a source of inspiration could foster the generation of creative concepts.
