The Challenge

Every day, metal additive technologies continue to change the manufacturing landscape. The gap between technology and integration keeps getting wider. As a result, engineers like you need a faster, smarter and more convenient way to learn how to harness these advances. And you need it now.


The Solution

ASME’s Design for Additive Manufacturing with Metals eLearning course is the answer. You now have on-demand access to a course from an industry respected source, that you can attend at your own pace.

By taking the Design for Additive Manufacturing with Metals course, you will:

  • Prepare to efficiently move parts from design, through post-processing and eventually into market.
  • Learn to own the entire process of AM: designing the business plan, the part, AND the process.
  • Explore ways of significantly reducing design risk and potential rework costs before production even begins.

What makes our course different than others?


Focus on Powder Bed Fusion (PBF)

This is the fastest growing metal additive manufacturing segment right now. PBF with metals is already making significant contributions to the aerospace, automotive, healthcare, and oil & gas industries.


First-of-its-kind training leveraging ASME's Replicate Adapt Optimize™ framework

Design engineers will learn how to adjust their workflow, set expectations for stakeholders, and have a clearer understanding of what’s possible given their specific use case.


Advanced Manufacturing Flight Check™ protocol

Save time and money for your business. You will leverage a tangible checklist and on-the-job aid that will help validate a design before the final build.


Case-based method of instruction

This provides you with real-life workplace situations, so you’ll be better able to integrate what you’ve learned.
