How can the designed part be as close to the manufactured part during the design process? Here's the link to the reference https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXcqTwGTTLk
I think when designing for FDM printing especially, print orientation must be taken into account to ensure that the part is at it's strongest to the stress path.
Yes... tensile & compressive loading is ideally parallel to layer buildup, whereas 'normal' to layer buildup will net weaker parts.
Is 5D printing the answer to manufacturing your parts, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5z2dk0H5mZU
This should eliminate the downsides stated above, right?
If you could micro-manage layer construction to that degree, I guess you could.
However, if your design is teetering the edge of reliability... then the effort is better spent (IMO) designing to a more conservative safety factor.
