30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 60 hours (equivalent to 2 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 37.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
|Recommended prerequisites (modules):
MAB_19_A_2.01.CAD CAD 3D Modeling
MAB_19_A_2.02.TFL Manufacturing Process Technology (with Lab Course)
MAB_19_M_4.07.FBG Production-Optimized Component Design
|Recommended as prerequisite for:
Prof. Dr. Jürgen Griebsch
M.Eng. Tobias Häfele
After successfully completing this part of the module, students will be familiar with additive manufacturing technologies and be able to apply their knowledge about it.
They will be familiar with the typical fields of application for different procedures and also their limits. Students will be proficient in the production-ready design (CAD; bionic principles) of components manufactured using an additive process. They will be able to evaluate the feasibility of existing designs or drawings and to recognize cost drivers of generative manufacturing processes and thus, to name the most economically reasonable production method for components.
