Microstructures for qualitative process
Computer-aided design (CAD) software has played a central role in creating precision drawings over the past decades. The development of advanced technologies such as multi-material 3D printers could revolutionise the traditional models in CAD. This was made possible after microstructure was introduced into the design-analysis-manufacturing process, providing qualitative progress in manufacturing. The EU-funded ADAM^2 project proposes a unified manufacturing line that will focus on all phases containing analysis, design and manufacturing using microstructures. The project proposes high-risk interdisciplinary research that will match shape modelling using microstructures, physical process simulation and physical realisations via linear and hybrid manufacturing. It envisages scientific and technological achievements that will reduce the use of heavy materials by half.
