Innovative method for Design Education for Additive Manufacturing using the example of the development of an ornithopter

  • The additive manufacturing processes have developed significantly in recent years. Currently, new generative processes are coming onto the market. Likewise, the number of available materials that can be processed using additive processes is steadily increasing. Therefore, an important task is to integrate these new processes and materials into the university education of engineers. Due to theThe additive manufacturing processes have developed significantly in recent years. Currently, new generative processes are coming onto the market. Likewise, the number of available materials that can be processed using additive processes is steadily increasing. Therefore, an important task is to integrate these new processes and materials into the university education of engineers. Due to the rapid change and the constant development in the field of additive manufacturing, a pure transfer of knowledge is not expedient, because this obsolete very quickly. Rather, the students should be enabled to use their skills in such a way that they can always handle new technologies and materials independently and meaningfully. In this paper, therefore, a new course is developed in which the students largely independently work with additive manufacturing processes. For this purpose, teams of four to five students from different technical programs are formed. The teams have the task of developing and manufacturing a product using additive processes. The goal is to create a powerful product by taking into account the optimization of costs and use of resources. As an example, the development and additive manufacturing of an ornithopter (aircraft that flies by flapping its wings) will be presented in this contribution. The students have to analyze and optimize the mechanics and aerodynamics of the aircraft. In addition, the rules for production-oriented design must be determined and applied. Further more, they should assess the costs and material consumption during development and production. This contribution shows how the students have achieved the different learning outcomes. In addition, it becomes clear how the students independently acquired and applied their knowledge in development, design and additive manufacturing. Also, it will be demonstrated how much time the students spent on learning the different technologies.‚Ķshow moreshow less
