Position: Additive Manufacturing (AM) Engineer

This role will advance Divergent’s production system through the evolution and maturation of tools to support 3D printing, build file preparation, and optimization.

What You’ll Do:

– Provide Design for Additive Manufacturing input to engineering teams to collaborate in making optimized parts for our complex, multi-material vehicle structures
– Interface with engineering, software, and manufacturing groups to understand process constraints and provide design inputs for improved printability and tools development
– Advance our techniques for support structure optimization, with the opportunity to add to our patent portfolio in this area
– Improve our distortion and error reduction activities, helping to ensure part tolerance accuracy
– Continually pursue improvements for support material reduction, part packing density, powder egress, and build success rate
– Evaluate and recommend software tools that can help to achieve production goals
– Optimize 3-dimensional build layout and part nesting in support of achieving printer productivity rates
– Follow defined procedures and processes and help to create them where needed
– Work with supplied CAD files to prepare build files for 3D printing
– Generate build time estimates in support of program planning and execution

What You’ll Have:

– 2 year technical degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent
– Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering
– 0-3 years using CAD and CAM tools for build preparation in support of 3D printed metal component production
·  Solid interpersonal skills with the ability to interface with engineering and manufacturing groups to understand process constraints and provide design inputs for improved manufacturability

Preferred skills:

· Previous programming experience – Python, C, Matlab or other object oriented
·  Experience with process simulation software such as Simufact, Netfabb, or 3DSim
·  Computational geometry or parametric modeling experience (NS a plus)
– Applied college engineering experience (FSAE/Formula Student programs a plus)
