LIVE EVENT - SHORT COURSE: PM SHORT COURSE 4: ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING OF GEOMETRICALLY-COMPLEX ELECTRONICS AND ELECTROMAGNETICS

The two-hour short course will provide a comprehensive overview of the full taxonomy of additive manufacturing processes as defined by the ISO/ASTM 52900 standard. Each of the seven additive manufacturing processes will be described in terms of both operation and in the context of benefits and challenges for electronics and electromagnetics. A diversity of case studies will be provided highlighting the profound benefits of fabricating electronics with the design freedom, mass customization and geometrical-complexity that additive manufacturing brings to bear.
