Design for Additive Manufacturing Custom Training


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, and the readying of design files for additive manufacturing. Students will also gain hands-on experience editing STL files with Magics software and performing topology optimization with SIMULIA software.

Upon completion of each course students will receive a certificate of completion.

For questions on the course or to register by phone please call our local 3D Printing contact, Edison Lian at +65-9734-4855.


  • 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 develop design strategies that meet your business requirements
  • Execute design strategies in multi-disciplinary teams or through simulations

Students registered for the course must have:

  • A general understanding of additive manufacturing technologies, processes, applications and terminologies
  • Familiarity with software design tools (e.g. CAD)
  • Familiarity with finite element analysis (FEA)

Registered students who do not meet the above prerequisites will be provided a link to UL’s online Foundations of 3D Printing. This training will be complimentary for registered participants.

Target Audience

This course is intended for professional designers, practicing engineers, and skilled technicians who want to understand how to design parts using AM.
