Abstract. Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, has been the most developing, desired manufacturing process in the manufacturing industry for the last three decades. Ease of application, design of freedom, and variety of materials application attracted all industries manufacturers to shift their dependency of the traditional manufacturing processes to acquire an innovative state-of-the-art solution at the most affordable cost. AM manufacturing provides parts with the optimum processing factors and the least material wastage. Strength and final dimensional accuracy are vital in AM parts creation. This paper will demonstrate the DfAM to fabricate a piping spacer for the oil and gas piping system. Also, it will shed light on the main elements that impact DfAM’s strategy. All related manufacturing parameters: including infill, printing orientation, and material selection analyzed, to acquire a robust part created using the FDM process to ensure the final product is safely utilized for the oil and gas industry application.
