Understanding design for additive manufacturing in space applications
Angelica finished her master in industrial design engineering at Luleå university of technology in 2015 and has since then been a PhD student at the Product Innovation group. Her research is connected to the Graduate School of Space Technology at LTU and is performed in collaboration with the RIT-project (Space for Innovation and Growth).
Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) is often argued to bring a higher degree of design freedom, as well as a possibility to bring a higher level of creativity. However, the new manufacturing technology does not come without boundaries and the lack of understanding for such boundaries influence designers’ possibilities to utilize their creative abilities. Angelicas research focus on creativity in DfAM, aiming to contribute to the research areas product development, creativity, and DfAM.
