Three-dimensional printing offers varied possibilities of design that can be bridged to optimisation tools. In this review paper, a critical opinion on optimal design is delivered to show limits, benefits and ways of improvement in additive manufacturing. This review emphasises on design constrains related to additive manufacturing and differences that may appear between virtual and real design. These differences are explored based on 3D imaging techniques that are intended to show defect related processing. Guidelines of safe use of the term “optimal design” are derived based on 3D structural information.
Key words: Additive Manufacturing / Topological optimisation / Process-induced defects / X-ray micro-tomography
