DESIGN AUTOMATION FOR CUSTOMISED AND LARGE-SCALE ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING: A CASE STUDY ON CUSTOM KAYAKS
Paper i proceeding, 2019

Additive Manufacturing (AM) offers the potential to increase the ability to customise large-scale plastic components. However, a substantial amount of manual work is still required during the customisation process, both in design and manufacturing.
This paper looks into how the additive manufacturing of mass customised large-scale products can be supported. Data was collected through interaction with industrial partners and potential customers in a case study regarding the customisation of kayaks.
As a result, the paper proposes a model-based methodology which combines design automation with a user interface.
The results point to the benefit of the proposed methodology in terms of design efficiency, as well as in terms of displaying results to the end user in an understandable format.
