A virtual 3DEXPERIENCE event is coming up this week, in addition to webinars on topics such as additive manufacturing safety, supply chain issues, printing intelligent parts, and more.

3DEXPERIENCE: A Virtual Journey

The 3DEXPERIENCE Forum by Dassault Systèmes was supposed to be held in Florida early last month, but like most everything these days, it was postponed due to COVID-19; thus the reason for this roundup. But as they say in the theatre world, the show must go on, and this Wednesday, July 29th, Dassault will kick off a series of digital programming, called 3DEXPERIENCE: A Virtual Journey, that’s meant to replace the company’s annual North America customer event. This premiere episode will begin at 1 pm EDT with a live stream Plenary Session featuring Erik Swedberg, North America Managing Director, Dassault Systèmes; Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman & CEO, Dassault Systèmes; Florence Verzelen, EVP Industry, Marketing, Global Affairs, Workforce of the Future; Renee Pasman, Director Integrated Systems, Skunk Works, Lockheed Martin; and Craig Maxwell, VP, Chief Technology and Innovation Officer, Parker Hannfin. At 3 pm the same day, you can access the on-demand Manufacturing and Supply Chain sessions as well.

“Watch how leading companies are preparing for industrial transformation and the impact new technologies will have on businesses of the future.  This episode will feature two tracks, Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering, and Planning and Optimization.  Breakouts will cover how companies of all sizes can virtually validate value networks, factory layouts, transportation plans, process plans, logistics plans and workforce plans to take advantage of new market opportunities.”

Future episodes of 3DEXPERIENCE: A Virtual Journey will take place on August 26th, September 23rd, and October 14th. Register here.

Additive Manufacturing Safety Certificate Program

On Tuesday, July 28th and Wednesday, July 29th, from 9 am – 1 pm EDT, the ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) will be holding an in-depth online training course all about AM safety. The “Additive Manufacturing Safety Certificate Program” will teach attendees how to properly set up an AM facility, and the various safety issues that must be considered during the AM process lifecycle. The instructor, ASTM’s Additive Manufacturing Lead Project Engineer, Paul Bates, will provide information on topics such as application of standards in AM facilities, best practices for handling materials and responding to an emergency, applicable regulatory standards and codes, and more.

“With more and more industrial sectors adopting additive manufacturing (AM) technology, there is a growing need to fully understand safety of its use. Proper implementation of safe practices is needed to support the rapid growth of the field. As a leading driver of AM technology, ASTM is committed to filling the AM safety knowledge gap by providing world-class training from industry leaders to support the use of AM and keeping its workforce safe.”

You can register for the course here. ASTM will also be holding an AM General Personnel Certificate Program starting August 4th.

NAMIC: How AM is Solving Supply Chain Disruptions

The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) in Singapore is hosting a webinar entitled “How Additive Manufacturing is Solving Supply Chain Disruptions” on Thursday, July 30th, about how HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology can help you quickly adjust to new conditions, respond to unplanned events in real time, and continue to offer quality, reliable products. Speakers will be Edward Davis, Director of 3D Strategy in HP’s Chief Technologists Office; GoProto ANZ General Manager Leon Gairns; Anshuman Dikshit, Senior Industrial Design Researcher for AvGa Healthcare; and HP’s Churia Prakash, Application Engineer & Expansion 3D Print & Digital Manufacturing. There will be a question and answer session at the end.

“As the world advances toward recovery, industries around the world achieve operations continuity and ease the pressure on supply chains as they localize production, produce parts on demand, eliminate inventory, and benefit from shorter lead times with the help of HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology – whether it is in healthcare production of 120,000 ventilator parts in just twenty four days to manifesting industrial applications with unprecedented speed and high-value customization using hybrid manufacturing.”

The webinar will be held from 9-10:30 am India Standard Time (IST), which means that if you’re on EST time like myself, it will actually take place at 11:30 pm on Wednesday, July 29th. Register here.

Objectify Addmics & 3DPrint.com’s Webinar Series

3DPrint.com recently launched a series of webinars with Objectify AddMics, an initiative by Objectify Technologies meant to educate individuals on the value and potential of 3D printing. The webinars, featuring Objectify experts and other industry leaders, will work to increase the outreach of additive manufacturing technologies, increase AM adoption, inform buyers about new advancements and applications, and more. The next webinar, “AM Materials: Characterization Development & Testing,” will take place on Thursday, July 30th, from 6:30-8:30 am EDT, and cover alloy options, suitability, composition, and more.

“Today, additive manufacturing has the potential to unlock new sophisticated design and production capabilities for industrial companies, allowing manufacturers to produce customized goods and deliver parts faster. Keeping this in mind and to spread awareness regarding the technology we are coming up with our 4th series of webinars under our initiative “Objectify ADDmics”. The fourth series broadly focuses on various aspects of additive manufacturing such as the selection of materials to pre & post-processing criticalities; from how to be an informed buyer to its applications in the aerospace and space industry.”

RIZE On-Demand Webinar: 3D Printing Intelligent Parts

Finally, Boston additive manufacturing company RIZE has published a free, on-demand webinar, “Building Trust and Intelligence into 3D Printed Parts,” that you can watch whenever you want. If you don’t know, RIZE’s patented Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) technology allows for easy snap-off supports, and helps make it possible for the intelligent 3D printed parts to offer digitally connected experiences for IP controls and traceability. This webinar will explore customer applications for RIZE’s digitally augmented parts, and explain how the voxel-based APD process ensures the application of authentic images, text, and digital tracing, like bar codes, on the surface of any part.

Just like the last on-demand RIZE webinar we told you about, this one is also only about twenty minutes long, and presented by RIZE Applications Engineer Neal Foley. You can check it out below:
