The layered construction in additive manufacturing allows new degrees of freedom in the construction of components and thereby expands the available solution space.
Therefore, design optimization is faced with new challenges. The application-oriented product development method BioTRIZ has been developed to enable a systematic component construction using TRIZ and bionics.
Through the use of various bionic principles, the application of BioTRIZ in the illustrated example reduced the component mass by 63% without decreasing the required safety requirements.
