Mark Goudswaard MEng
Mark is a postgraduate researcher in the third year of his PhD. His doctoral research is centred on the democratisation of design for additive manufacture – investigating how the practice of design can be made more accessible to enable more people to reap the benefits afforded by additive manufacture.
He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Bristol, where he gained a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Different approaches to democratise design - are they equal?
Democratising the design of 3D printed functional components through a hybrid Virtual-Physical Design Methodology
Towards the democratisation of design: Exploration of variability in the process of filament deposition modelling in desktop additive manufacture
Objects manufactured by fused deposition modelling (FDM): Lessons from the design of three everyday artefacts
Realisation of self-replicating production resources through tight coupling of manufacturing technologies
- DMF Lab visiting research partners in Colombia - In December I visited current and potential research partners in Colombia. The main purpose of the visit was to explore research overlap between the DMF lab and La Universidad de los Andes in Bogota in areas related to the democratisation of design (the theme of my doctoral research) and also… Read More
- CIRPe Conference 2018 - Mark will be presenting an overview of the design methodology being implemented as part of his doctoral research at the 2018 CIRPe conference in the coming weeks. Below is a teaser video for what he will cover in his full talk which will follow soon! Read More
- DMF Lab at the Transdisciplinary Engineering Conference in Modena - Earlier this month Prof Aydin Nassehi and Mark Goudswaard travelled to Modena in Italy for the 25th International Conference on Transdisciplinary Engineering. Prof Nassehi, in conjunction with Prof Linda Newnes from Bath, ran a workshop exploring how Transdisciplinary Engineering will influence the future roles and requirements of design engineers. Mark… Read More
- Democratising Design for Additive Manufacture - 3D printing has the potential to revolutionise the way we consume goods. The technology should be able to facilitate low-cost, personal manufacture but complex design software and a lack technical knowledge prevent this from happening. Without the ability to generate or amend digital models it is impossible to reap the… Read More
