Design For Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) program

FATHOM now offers its Design For Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) programs. These regularly hosted full-day training events are made up of six sessions and have been scheduled throughout 2018—registration is open to the public (read press release). FATHOM will continue to offer private courses, as well as consultation services.

Our experts have designed a technology agnostic curriculum on the practical application of additive technologies to achieve greater results throughout the entire product development process and into production. This established training program helps companies push the limits of manufacturing to drive industry-leading innovation.

  • Learn How to Effectively Approach Design & Manufacturing from an Additive Technology Perspective
  • Examine Freedom of Complexity to Increase Product Possibility by Way of Physics-Based Design
  • Review a Wide Range of Materials, Matured Technologies, & Industry-Specific Application Development

These dynamic sessions focus on new realities in manufacturing such as part consolidation, lightweighting, organic geometries, high complexity, faster speeds, mass customization, risk mitigation, higher value problem-solving, lower tooling costs, and even tool-less production.

MIG Welding


MIG (metal inert gas) is the most common type of modern welding. It is a process by which a welding machine focuses electricity along a moving metal wire that is fed through a hose to a handheld torch. Student welders manipulate this torch as the electricity melts the wire and creates a weld. You will learn about the fundamentals of MIG welding, such as metallurgy, preparation, joints, technique, and safety. We will also cover plasma torch cutting. The class begins with a basic, technical welding exercise, then transitions into a small creative project. Come with ideas for a simple project.
