About the project
ADAA develops a learning program mainly for professional designers for upskilling in modern manufacturing solutions, such as AM, soft robotics, and multi-material manufacturing.
Purpose of the project
Technologies such as AM and multi-axis CNC offer new design freedom, which can be used to create parts with superior properties e.g. in cooling, acoustics, or vibration.
Enabling designers to apply these technologies will result in more resource- and cost-efficient products, leading to greener and more competitive production.
Main results & insights
Learning paths on Topology Optimization, Biomimetics, Compliant Mechanisms, Multimerial Design, Soft Robots, Acoustics, Heat Exchangers, Fibre-reinforced– and 4D AM.
