In this paper, authors present a new approach for supporting design process for additive manufacturing. The purpose of the method is to support structured process for the conceptual design phase and help designers utilise the unique possibilities of additive manufacturing with mapping of product functions and design principles through additive manufacturing ontology. The method is still in early research phase and therefore lacks a necessary computational framework. The paper presents the preliminary validation of the method through a case study.
