Cover Story (view full-size image): Additive manufacturing enables the transformation of manufacturing processes, encouraging the redesign of products. Besides its technological potentials, the definition of product/process parameters, the selection of redesign variants, the file exchange and data management still represent common issues, which require methods and tools to support designers. This paper presents a redesign approach integrating design for additive manufacturing and topology optimisation, which leads to the objective selection of the best redesigned configuration in accordance with the key performance indicators. The case study shows the redesign of a medical assistive device, previously developed in fused filament fabrication and now optimised for being 3D printed with selective laser melting.
