Additive manufacturing (AM) is causing a revolution in product design,
manufacturing and distribution. This technology facilitates the production
of complex, customized products without the need of any specific tooling,
thereby enabling products to be delivered at a lower cost than with traditional
manufacturing. From a design perspective, AM allows designers to selectively
place (multi-)material where it is needed to achieve the designed functionality.
However, despite remarkable progress in the domain of AM, a variety
of challenges – like support structures, staircase effects, and mechanical
performance [1] – should be investigated at depth to fully explore the potential
of AM. On the other hand, these challenges limit the designers’ freedom to
realize their creativity...
