DfAM Jobs December 2022
DfAM + Computational Design Currently Open
The job market may be a little shaky at the moment but there are still roles open for design for additive manufacture and computational design experts. Here are a few currently open from Apple to Oxman, and Lumafield to Wurth.
Demonstrable understating of Computational Design for production
Proficiency in Grasshopper and Rhino is preferred. Proficiency with Python or C# is a plus. Curiosity to learn and explore new tools is a must.
Highly adaptable and able to offer creative solutions for difficult, often ambiguous, problems.
Ability to comprehend and integrate large data sets into computational models.
Conceptual ability to translate and change parameters.
Proven complex data and file management.
Excellent communication skills. English proficiency required.
The role will:
Require involvement in all aspects of the project delivery, taking overall ownership and ensuring compliance with all relevant standards, technical support of commissioning, management of project budget and deliverables.
Provide technical leadership, mentoring and coaching to other staff while undertaking training to progress own career development.
Lead project technical deliverables, taking ownership to ensure work meets or exceeds agreed customer requirements, and is delivered within agreed budgets and timescales. Where delegated, will act as Technical Governance lead for project deliverables.
Undertake innovative Engineering research work focused primarily on technology/manufacturing readiness levels (TRL/MRL) 3+.
Lead engagement with multiple technology sectors and/or companies. The candidate should be able to identify suitable project opportunities that enable the application of capability and products developed in the team as well as championing the importance of Design for AM in UK industry.
About the role:
As a computational geometry engineer at Lumafield, you will develop geometry-based features and product capabilities for Voyager, Lumafield’s browser-based discovery software. You will build systems that will process massive quantities of geometry data and turn it into actionable insights for customers and apply machine learning to challenging tasks in manufacturing.
Develop computational design processes, embodiments, pipelines, and tools to explore mediation across biomimetic, biointegrated, and biosynthethic systems
Conception: Create prototypes, models, and pre-visualizations of computational design embodiments and methods to guide design processes and decision-making within the team
Research: Conduct research to enable and support projects through computational design technologies. Research is integrated to specific projects or facilitates the development of computational design processes used across projects
Implementation: Realize design concepts by using computational methods to design embodiments and, further, implement novel computational design processes that generate embodiments (e.g., 3D models, fabrication descriptions, machine interfaces, software, scripts)
Visualization: Develop 3D renderings and illustrations to inform and express research and design concepts to the team, clients, and the public
Collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of engineers, biologists, and designers
Communicate ideas, work, and progress clearly, including by engaging in team meetings, presentations, and other creative communication outlets
As a Computational Mechanical Engineer:
Your primary responsibility will be to utilize FEA modeling predictive modeling and simulation of materials and engineering systems across a variety of length and time scales.
You will develop new models and statistical analysis of the resulting data.
You will work with and actively collaborate with engineers, designers, fabricators, and scientists on a day to day basis.
You will propose future projects and initiatives.
You will also craft reports and give presentations to communicate results to team members and government partners.
The Computational Designer should understand product design process and be able to apply computational design to find optimal design solutions for any given design requirements. As a Computational Designer, you will work with diverse talents to develop generative design models and algorithms to develop and validate designs by employing emergent design and simulation techniques. The goal is to derive human-centered distinctive solutions.
Help customers to be successful using Nano Dimension AM products (polymer, ceramic, metal)
Interpret customer needs
Design unique and unprecedented structures based on AM
Assist in internal test and R&D efforts
Lead or assist in the development of technical white papers, application notes, and design guides
Operate AM products in the Waltham, MA office
Provide on-site in-person trainings to customers on how to use Nano Dimension products
Additive Manufacturing Design Engineer (Mystery, Wafer Processing?)
Apply Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) principals to meet project requirements
Responsible for all mechanical design aspects of the equipment, subassemblies, and components
Provide mechanical engineering expertise, while focusing on design quality, reliability, effective cost, and ease of manufacturing
Envolve new and innovative methods for product development and design by utilizing AM.
Partner with manufacturing teams to identify AM opportunities and complete designs, that maximize the benefits of using Additive Manufacturing while negotiating tolerances and other capabilities of the technology
Work with the AM team to ensure builds are coordinated with design iterations and that DfAM feedback is provided throughout the development cycle
Pioneer the technology and spearhead engineering efforts to incorporate AM in the “daily life” of design team
The Metal Additive Lead Technologist will be a key technical role for all the projects, customer engagements, and vendor relationships requiring in-depth knowledge of Metal Additive technologies as well as Design-for-Additive solutions. This role will be spearheading Wurth Additive Group (WAG) Product and Technology Development Roadmaps for the Metal Additive product line
Good luck to anyone applying for any of the above roles, let me know if they work out for you.
