The theory of inventive problem solving methodology (TRIZ) is a well-established accelerator to support problem solving by linking specific engineering problems and solutions to general patterns. TRIZ can be applied in conjunction with Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) to create novel geometries, shapes, and enhanced functionalities. In this study, the applicability for DFAM of each of the 40 inventive principles of TRIZ is evaluated and classified. Examples for three TRIZ principles
