The paper presents a new methodology on how to design a product, which could be produced directly as an assembly, instead of manufacturing all individual parts, to be assembled after words, in a classical manner. A detailed case study is presented, on how the product’s structure could be simplified, the number of the components being drastically reduced. The theoretical Design for Assembly (DFA) methodology was tested and validated, by manufacturing the physical products, using the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) machine.
