Additive manufacturing (AM) framework enables the customization of geometries regardless of the number of parts to manufacture. Hence, the right product can be provided to the right customer. However, traditional optimization methods, used to improve performance and mass, are usually non-parametric. Therefore, the process flow shall be repeated even if all parts in a library display similar functions and overall geometry. As such, the relation between development time and the number of parts to design is linear. Hence, one cannot afford to generate large libraries using these approaches.
